Hello everybody! I'm excited to participate in this challenge :D
I would like that my design told a backstory of the robot, I feel I have to work on developing my composition and narrative skills. All comments are welcome n_n about the robots or advice on narrative. Saludos desde Chile!
Before I actually start painting, here is my concept for a gel droid. The idea is that an amorphous gel with millions of carbon fiber nano bots in it can be programmed to make it's skeleton into any shape. The machine parts build air-tight floatation chambers around themselves to focus on movement, rather than holding itself upright. Tendrils connected to the surface of the gel maintain shape, and deliver air pressure for the floats, when needed.
I'm still unsure about the shape, and may consider zooming out the composition to get a more unique profile. I was also considering just playing with opacity of layers in photoshop for the translucence effect, but now leaning towards straight up using opaque brush strokes throughout.
