I definitely feel like I’m missing the reference here, so until someone enlightens me as to who or what the subject of this stellar piece by Dustin Poole from Sacred Balance actually is, I’m just going to believe it to be the cyber-sexy offspring of Silver Surfer and lovable droid C3PO. Prove me wrong, ModBlog! Prove me wrong.

id put it in her
It looks like a sexed up version of the girl on the cover of Metropolis.
This is a figure from an 80′s computer animation commissioned by the US Steel industry. You might be able to find it on Youtube. Was very cutting edge for its time.
I looks like illustration work by Hajime Sorayama.
oh wow I’m happy to know where this is from,
but i can’t remember the artist, i have a collection of his…
or really its my fathers which is weirder if you’ve seen alot of his work
but if i had to guess i would go with Orchestras answer -.-
i can tell you by Thursday.. or you could do a little creative googling.
i’m positive someone on modblog can answer this thou.
I’m no good at linkage here.. but this image looks familiar…and is sorayama’s design…
Reminded me of metropolis, too, but it’s different.
It’s one designed by Sorayama, more here : http://www.sorayama.net
Similar to the pics in the links posted , my first reaction was it resembled the woman on the cover of Aerosmith’s album “Just Push Play”. http://lh4.ggpht.com/_fAT7UABRBOo/R6H_lmaAr7I/AAAAAAAAAqE/DHCrWKXsaXU/Aerosmith_Just_Push_Play-%5BFront%5D-%5Bwww.FreeCovers.net%5D.jpg
That robot’s from an Aerosmith album.
isn’t it an aerosmith album cover?
7 – That’s what I thought.
I’d agree with Joe and sat it’s the robot girl from Fritz Lang’s Metropolis: http://www.german-films.de/content/2/focus-metropolis.jpg
I’d say Sorayama’s design was based on the robot from Metropolis buuut… You know I don’t know.
but that aerosmith album cover was created by sorayama. sooo everybodys right.
nice tat 2 (altho not maori)
I am nto a fan of the captions now. “nice shooting son” wtf?
Fritz Lang totally stole that idea from Aerosmith
This is very good
it is the maid from the jetsons when she was twenty years younger….
She was on the cover of an issue of Heavy Metal!
I love it 🙂
Reminds me of the robot from Jackson 5, Dancing Machine!
it’s from aerosmith album, i’m pretty sure…
i would guess “just push play”, the one with jaded and fly away from here.
i think you guys missed the fact its a dude. wouldnt that be awkward.
I figured I saw this somewhere in the music world.
the Aerosmith album was what I thought of first.
sorayama kicks ass too!
Does anyone read before posting?
I dig this, metal can be tricky to render, but this was well done. I feel like the head could use some work though, some blue thrown in.
This reminded me of Astar the war amps robot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_QMcRSuXzE
riiiight haha i knew it looked familiar… totally bomb tho.. – agree with post28. XD
I lol’d at 17.
I thought Metropolis at first too, then I figured it looked more like the robot girl from Just Push Play (huge ‘Smith fan, should have seen it first but w/ever)
either way, lovely work
It’ really looks like the Aerosmith cover of “just push play” But, about the work. I’m very impressed with the metal shine and texture of this. Defiantly Modblog worthy.
