does not compute by damnskippy does not compute by damnskippy
I was asked to submit artwork for an art show done in conjuction with the Atlantic Film Festival (link: [link] ) in September. The art show will be at the Argyle Fine Art Gallery on September 22nd, and this piece should be for sale.

The theme of the show is "Urban Myths and Legends." I wasn't that interested in stories about hooks for hands or calls coming from inside the house, so illustrated the computer urban legend "Does Not Compute," or the idea that a computer/artificial being will self-destruct when considering emotions or paradoxes.

Consider this a companion piece to another robot-with-human-face drawing I did a while back.

does not compute by ~damnskippy It seems even when not making comics, :devdamnskippy: is still telling a story. The concept behind an artificial life shutting down over the overwhelming concept of emotion really comes across in a literal explosion of sparks & connection of color. ( Featured by kozispoon )

A good piece.  Bit scary though.  Some sort of twisted version of Wizard of OZ???  How painful!

I love the shading, it's really clear how shiny and metallic everything is. The blacked-out foreground objects are a really nice framing device too.

I love this. It reminds me of a sci-fi movie I saw one time. And a story my friend had written where a robot had fallen in love with a human. So romantic, cute, and hilarious. But anyway, I love the drawing. It's just so.. cute. :D

Very good; it reminds me of those sci-fi stories where a machine discovers emotion :D

Gorgeous! It reminds me of the song 'Industrial Love' by VNV Nation. I love how it's mostly monochromatic, which makes the red in the eyes and heart really stand out well!
