This is a piece that I've been working on for a while. It won 3rd place in Decembers Gnomon Workshop 2D contest. The 1st place winner clearly won but I still think I should have taken 2nd instead of 3rd. I thought mine was better not because I did it but because I thought the idea was more interesting and the execution more refined. It's all up to the judges on the site of course and maybe some of them just really don't like robots, I don't know. In any case, I like how it turned out.

I had envisioned a war of machines that had just ended and the highways into the capital would be lined with the broken down husks of once deadly engines of war.

I'm working on a colour version of this drawing right now. I'm really happy with how it turned out and so far the colour version is turning out really nicely as well. I'll up load it when I'm finished.
