Cambot 406 by uoa7 Cambot 406 by uoa7
Cambot, short for Camera Robot, is a type of robot that will go around and shoot photos under its owner's command. 
NO. 406, however, had a glitch when it was made. It doesn't follow orders, and instead, it likes taking photos of things it finds interesting.
It is now looking at a photo of something it profoundly misses, and yet as a robot, there's no way for it to express the feeling.
However, the rain trails running down its "face" kinda tell everything...

Software used: Maya, Mari, Zbrush, Nuke. 
I put up a WIP page on my website if anyone wants to know my workflow for this piece:

Did you use ZBrush to texture the robot? I'm not too familiar with Mari and Nuke. But I do use Maya and am looking for ways to improve the quality of the textures. Any advice for someone just starting out?

I used Mari to do the texturing. 
In terms of advice...keep learning and practicing :)

I love the protagonist; the sense of scale, the atmosphere of his environment, and the personality portrayed... An awesome image and well deserving of a DD!

Hope you don't mind, but I prompted a piece of flash fiction on your image; Little Brother

The image is shown as a preview for the writing (credited and linked to of course), setting the scene for the narrative. If you like it then great! If not and you'd like me to remove the link just let me know.

I looked at the process on your website. I like how you managed the rain splash effects and the interresting way to draw a rain mask for the robot.

Yes, the background city was a high dynamic range panorama. The robot, street, railings and light poles are CG
