Retro Vintage Still Life Series

Here is a small item from one of my future retro-vintage still lifes.
I thought it would be fun to do some of my old wind ups!
I did some of them over three years ago and since I am
now doing some more elaborate settings, I decided that
I would spotlight a few fun items. I have always been a BIG
fan of science fiction and fantasy. It seems to be the
place for the mind to imagine that anything is possible!

Very cool. I'd like to do something like this sometime in the future.

I love the larger than life sci-fi lighting angle on this one, really brings the robot to life

Love it! The lighting/shadow is great!

What a fun piece! The huge askew shadow gives it that Twilight Zone feel. And of course, you've painted it to perfection.
