A few images of the process develop for my latest Empathetic Robot oil painting. The concept of a ‘rescue’/’assistance in departure’ had been in my sketchbook in various forms for over 13 years now, dating back to a knight carrying a young person in need.
I love how the basic emotion and action and be transmitted across genres – it’s all about the humanity of the moment. Given the turmoil around A.I. and the dark future of commercial art, this felt like the right interpretative concept for my idea.
Keep this thought in mind as you generate concepts for your own projects – find ways to make them ‘yours’.
