Well, take this critique for what its worth, but I really liked it. The warm lighting and pink lines provide a nice contrast to the metallic body, and the shape, though humanoid, is just artificial enough to give pause. I'm afraid I don't know exactly what the title refers to, So I can't comment on that. Do forgive me if I've completely misread this, but the idea of a robot in the fetal position is very interesting, if only for the associations of the birth of identity, sentience, and the age old debate of when does a group of cells become a person. Many Thanks.
It's always lovely to see something new from you, especially after such a long hiatus.
Nice to see something this polished from you first of all, as most of your work tends to lean more towards a graphic novel feel. I find the way in which you make armour to be very appealing, as though it fits to an easily identified organic shape but still has a very technical feel (each piece looks as if it serves a purpose in design and placement).
The colour choice is great. I love the soft glow of the illuminated parts. And I always love hair that contrasts with the bearers skin-tones.
Font choice seems fitting and like the subtle colour changes at the top.
Th only thing that feels disjointed to me is the kind of umbilical cord and where it exits the picture. I feel it throws the composition off just slightly, but I think that is more personal taste rather than bad execution.
I would pay more close attention to relativity of the parts of the body though ( looking between the two feet, one toe end feels noticeably larger than the other. the back of the neck seems far to long [nearly as half the size of her back] ) but from what I remember you do most of your work in pen, so there is little room for me to hold these against you!
I do think the image would have been more striking with a more contrasting colour for the backdrop. But that's not to say the one you have now is bad...in fact it does give a very warm feeling to the picture overall.
Kind of reminiscent of Ghost in the Shell.
Hope you've enjoyed my over analysing of your work. I don't get to do these often. hah. Don't hate me bro.
A perfect blend of Ghost in the Shell with Zone of the Enders. As usual. Great, wholesome material. I like that you left a rather soft toned minimalist background. Makes the main point of interest, protrude all the more. Well done.
