Cool, it's patch worthy!
Thank you very much! It's my first patch ever! But I just found out that it wears off after a month. Am I right? Anyways Thank you so much
ChrysN (author)  aleceatsfood5 years ago
I have patches that are much older that are still around, so I don't think it wears off.
oh.. I thought I heard that somewhere, but thats good! Oh and I've been wanting to say this, your cat (staring in some of your instructables) is very nice looking!

Here's a sketch of mine. I'll have the colored one up soon but couldn't resist sharing this. I'm not a great artist so I hope I did the Instructables robot justice :)
(the things in his wagon are little instructables robot action figures, some muffins/cupcakes from some delicious instructables, and Scoochmaroo's cake pops)

Kiteman jen77145 years ago
It's like a young Robot, in the days before he discovered the internet...
Yeah, but he has that smirk, collecting empty soda cans and bits of rusty metal...now how do I make them into a powder...
make them into a powder, or how do I make them into a Brother :-)
jen7714 Kiteman5 years ago
I can see that! Like he's setting up a lemonade stand only with instructables projects. And thanks for all the nice comments.
Nice !

Here's my entry. I did some modifications to the robot in the last one, so I don't know if it counts. 1st entry is just pencil on paper, the second is a polyester lithography.
Hisart ben_k5 years ago
Congrats on First Place!

Both are well done, but I like the feel of the litho!
Great !

I am not looking to actually win anything, but trying to spark some ingenuity here: Here is my latest Sketch, and I dub this one: Inside Robot's Head :-)
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Like little homuculus or in this case robunculus inside his head.

Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
Yes, like this only roboticly....with each "being" having to have a similar yet smaller version of the same "controller" inside each "head".

Of course, in typical Norman Rockwell style :-) 

Love it.
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Cool! Always wondered what goes on in Robot's head.
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
It is a poor dipiction of a robot in the head of a robot as controller, with another inside HIS head, etc etc.

Do you want scans/photos of drawings on paper, or will you accept digital media as well?
All accepted !
Digital media or scans/photos .
Digital Media is allowed
The orginal plan was scans/photos but I'll check with ChrysN for the digital media.
ChrysN (author)  lockpick5 years ago
Digital media is acceptable.
ultimate alien
Robot's cousin?
yes a crazy one
he is happy
Robot smokes?!?
It's not smoke he bit a part off his opponent.

I probaly didn't have to put that in but I did.

Maybe he caught a smoking bullet in his mouth?
lol. do you mean a bullet shell or a bullet bullet.
Goodhart5 years ago
I have GOT to find a space to set up my scanner(s)....I hate not being able to scan in....
ChrysN (author)  Goodhart5 years ago
Does that mean you have a Robot drawing in the works?
Goodhart ChrysN5 years ago
I am thinking about it at the moment. trying to find the best way to get it "on line" without having to actually take a photograph....if I can scan it in, I will try to draw it.
You could take a picture and flip around if you want.
My camera is not REAL good with up close and personal :-) The macro and super macro setting really is poor.
