A few robots sketched out.
I love this fellow's crystal sword. His main body was created from a piece of mirror, the greek key design cut-out in the center was done in class on the taurus ring saw. The edges got roughed up in the process so I took a stone to the glass and roughed it up more, distressing the silvering on the back of the mirror.
Again, the mirror torso was cut on the taurus ring saw.
I think this fellow may end up flying a kite. I brainstormed with the hubby on fun and silly things I can have the robots doing. I would like to have more activity happening with these robot stories.
This is Arvin the Avian Robot. His body was created from imagery of vintage transistor radios. Arvin is the name on the main radio image that makes up his torso. The glass on both the head and body is textured. I am not sure if I am going to glass in the background, I like it at this stage. I am afraid if I glass over the colorful ground then Arvin will not pop out as much. If I do glass it in I will use large pieces and cut lines into the glass with holes at the end of the lines to mimic the circuit pattern.
