I felt like drawing something technical, so I began by drawing the armor on the left side of its head. When I was half way down, I didn't feel like drawing mechanical legs anymore, and made these boosters for transportation.

The antbot warrior is mainly bought as little sidekick by bounty hunters in the post-apocalyptal age. Due to their silent thrusters instead of legs they're very manoeuvrable, which is a great advantage in battles. All they need is a little oil and a new battery once in a while.

Dude - your art rocks! You have a very cool eclectic style that has so much character imho. Doesn't look like everyone else and is very unique. Reminds me a bit of the core development artist for Warhammer 40K. Awesome work!!

O.O this is...really really good and detailed.You must have some patience!The sword does remind me of clouds from ff7 as others said as well,but thats just because of its basic shape.I love the pose of it too.It makes it look innocent in a way(the way the arms are hanging down by its side,and it looks like hes just brining them together shyly...thats what I see anyways ^-^;12
