TAO Taedus by ChimeraPathogen TAO Taedus by ChimeraPathogen
Inspired by :iconvulnepro: *VulnePro 's Combat Taedus. Took a few days, but it's finally done. I have a really short attention span now when it comes to art... and it's nearly finals week. Yeh, Vulnepro pretty much rocks my socks. This robot was sort of cobbled together on the fly, but if I can keep motivated I might actually DESIGN something, using art principles, which would be a good thing.

It's just a brush. I think it's from the original packs included with Photoshop CS4.

A heads up from :iconplasmafire3000: (founder of the Mecha Designers group) sent me here and I'm glad he did, this is damn cool :) I'm always seriously humbled when the Theos work inspires other artists to do their own take on the material or create homage/fan arts. I'm always appreciative of that and have been consistently impressed with everyone's cool creations, this being no exception.

For something you said was hobbled together it's a rather nice piece and actually looks like something that could fit in the TKP universe. Rather like the head and the reverse joint legs it has. He's also got a nice action pose going on and has a very distinctly unique visual style (which I note a lot of your work has) as well. Dig the textures and the grimy dirty look you gave it, he looks like he's been around the block a few times. Fav and watch.

Very cool indeed :)

Oh wow thanks! I really like your work. It reminds me a bit of art-nouveau style images. I guess it's the clean, organic lines and cohesive color palettes. So basically... art nouveau + giant robots... yep... lovin' it.

You're totally welcome man!

Yeah, you have picked up on that right, there is some nouveau mixed in with some of the Theos work, along with art deco, futurism, cubism, post modernism, etc. All those influences are more or less blended into the Theos melange stew pot and become something else yet still identifiable cues. My art background is actually fine arts so it has really informed the material I create a great deal, and, I hope, making it a bit more unique than the usual fare at least in how I employ it.

Thanks again and happy to meet you.

Best!
