My version of a Robot Girl in Big Eye Style holding a Robo Doll. Set in a fantasy world with a white city and pigs flying in the sky. Sometimes, I just want to paint cute things and this is what I came up with today. As a teen, I always use to say “When Pigs Fly” so it was the first thing that I thought of to paint in the background and the word “LOVE” is also a fitting and wonderful word to put into artwork that might hang in a young person’s room. Cutey Pie Art for 2012.

This piece was fun to create and started out as a rough sketch. After painting in the colors I decided to include heavy body acrylics right from the tube and also 3D paint for the details. It came out COOL and FUNKY. Just what I was hoping to achieve.  

 

Guitar Players and Musicians are a very popular subject to paint and one where you can use your creativity by leaps and bounds. Try to use your imagination while making figures and musical instruments. Abstract Expression, Surrealism or illustrations are great for achieving music themed art! BUY PRINTS OF guitar players art

Whenever I create steampunk art on canvas, I try not to think about any kind of guidelines and let my mind take over the idea process. Gears and Clocks always pop into my head and I love making freehand illustrations and mixed media art. I have to include the Robots too because robots are so fun to make. The sky is the limit with this style! You can make it as complex as you like just by adding more details to your gears. Robots can be made out of fantasy trash cans, old vintage parts and even clocks. Take your mind to a new place and try creating some pipes, winged mechanisms and altered bronzed keys…This painting is a cool example of freehand steampunk art. This original painting measures 24 x 36″ and the materials used are Ink, Metallic Paint, Acrylics and Gallery Wrapped Canvas. CUSTOM ORDER -SOLD

WHAT IS THE UNCANNY VALLEY?
The uncanny valley is a hypothesis that when robots and other facsimiles of humans look and act almost, but not entirely, like actual humans, it causes a response of revulsion among human observers. The valley in question is a dip in a proposed graph of the positivity of human reaction as a function of a robot’s lifelikeness (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uncanny_Valley)

What is Steampunk? (Article posted by Wikipedia, continued here)

Steampunk is a sub-genre of fantasy and speculative fiction that came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of “the path not taken” of such technology as dirigibles, analog computers, or digital mechanical computers (such as Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine); these frequently are presented in an idealized light, or with a presumption of functionality.

Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Apart from time period and level of technological development, the main difference between cyberpunk and steampunk is that steampunk settings usually tend to be less obviously dystopian than cyberpunk, or lack dystopian elements entirely.

Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical “steampunk” style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.
