I'll kick off the WIPs...


The switch at the bottom of the machine's leg alternates between "kill" and "love".

mine is kind of small :(

I originally drew rosie the robot there instead of that hot fembot, but decided it was too comical for the setting.

Ensellitis: The shins are overlapping the thighs on both side of it. The legs in back should have the shins being overlapped, or else it'd have to be cutting through it's own joint to the bed to be able to rotate like that. And it wouldn't be symmetrical.

Looking good so far everyone!

@d-p: I noticed your people seem to get a lot smaller once they hop off the conveyor belt. If you were looking for more to do you could always add an extra loop for the ladies. Cool idea, by the way.

EDIT: Worked some more on it...

iSTVAN: I managed to find a copy of graphicsgale, It's a bit confusing as far as using the rubber tool and making transparencies for me. maybe I'm just dull. Everything else is nice though, the idea of finally being able to use layers seems nice. I wish I could find an ms-paint equivalent that had layers.



Not very happy with this so far,..The sad thing about the topic being "Love Machine" is that it get's the chorus from the cult's "Love Removal Machine" stuck in my head.

@ dfo: I dig it! Maybe make the person stand out a bit more, as he's hard to see in red (in my opinion). The smoke is looking ace so far.

@ veemobil: I don't think I eveer use the rubber tool in GG. Transparencies are pretty simple once you get used to it. I do just about all my pixelling in GG these days. Cute pixels aswell! I love the Carebear colours. You probably don't need the signature though, it only distracts from the work.

I ended up with this on the canvas after mindless doodling on paper. Then I pixelled him.

Is the background distracting? And is the metal too shiny? 15 colors.

@Ego: I think the background helps "pop" the pink and metal and I dig the shiny metal. The way the fingers join looks a little wonky and the text looks a little haphazard, but other than that I dig it.

@df0:  I love the monstrous doom-robot-love theme (I'm obviously going the same route).

@Ens:  I think having the bed "dip" would help it feel more natural. 

@d-p:  Awesome freaking idea. iSTVAN is right about the height of the assembly people changing.

@Setz:  That background brings sooooo much to the piece. Love it.

@dragonrc:  Are you all finished?

@iSTVAN:  My separated at birth broseph... I totally was going to do a booby computer!!!

@veemobil: Do you think it would look weird if you had the electric border go around the bottom of the robot's feet?

I worked a while on making shiny metal. I know how to make shiny metal now.

EDIT ok, I was going to submit this -  - but looking at your WIPs, I think i'd have to redo it.

iSTVAN : that's just the robot not the finished image so the sig's just there for the no brainers who save things, if people are going to take stuff at least they can edit that off, what you've said about transparencies makes sense, I'll give it another bash.

sedgemonkey : I initially wanted to position him atop something so the electricity probably wouldn't go around him, but I'm not sure anymore.

Smileshow your robot should start a lonely hearts club with edward scissorhands, maybe they could find some ladies in the local area with the same affliction.

 There are 21 hours from the time of this post.  You can just do the math for your particular time zone (assuming you've set your time offset in your profile).

Hmmm, I think I'll create a "countdown" clock on front page of PJ with how much time is left so people don't have to worry about timezones.

Just in case some can't think of things but still want to make something, I offer:

A play on HAL
Some kind of rooster bot (a cock) <--- almost went with this myself ;)
a VW bus on roids
the love machine from woody Allen's 'sleepers'
...will add more if any idea comes to mind as I finish my bunny.
