Was getting tired of my current iPhone wallpaper – so I decided to make a new one using the owl illustration i did a while back.

Awesomeness! Has a super cool robotic touch! I'm imagining how this owl would look like if shaded in 3D, with glossy black coated tritanium alloy and incidence-angle based dispersion in the glowing eyes :D
@Taptanium Oh man that would be so intense! Sounds like a transformer - would love to see that haha :D
I'll put it on my loooooong to-do list! Would definitely be fun to practice. Got a bit distracted from 3D graphics lately (so much coding to do) but have to get back into modo soon! Can I use your super cool owl graphics as a backdrop? I'll credit and rebound you of course :D
@Taptanium - Dude, of course - I would be honored :D
Cool man! Will definitely tackle this. Would be an awesome subject for practice! Get ready for Owlotron... haha
Yes! I'm pumped haha :D
Oh man, thank you @Inka Mathew - really appreciate it :D
Hey dude, started working on it: http://cl.ly/1w35232n360U0S161X1V - stay tuned :D
@Taptanium - Dude... no way! Haha, so pumped you don't even know!
Love the name btw - OwlTron!
That's going to look pretty cool! At least I hope so ;)
@Taptanium - No doubt :D
Pleeeease make this as a desktop wallpaper - it is the most awesome thing ever!
@Chris Biron - Sure thing! Just shipped my iMac back to Denver today, so unfortunately I wont be able to get to it till next week :(
Hey dude! Want to let you know I'm still working on it during my breaks from work. Progress:
Might do several crazy design variations. All stuff modeled with instance clones, using morph maps on the base meshes. Want 5 different Owltrons? You can have 10 different Owltrons :D
Will keep you posted!
@Chris Biron I'll render that as a wallpaper :D
@Taptanium - Oh man, looking good my dude! Can't wait to see all the variations :D
@Taptanium Awesome! I can't wait for this
@Chris Biron - Hey man. Finally got my shop setup. Just attached the desktop version of this wallpaper. Enjoy :D
@Mike Cummings Amazing man! Absolutely love it, thanks! You should add your icon and '2012 OWL' to it as well, I think it gives it some more character :)

This is a rough shot - just couldn't hold it back any longer. Still not entirely finished, but hopefully cool enough to justify dribbbling it.

Owltron is Robot of the Day at Year of the Robot!
1) Found Mike Cumming's awesome owl tattoo on Dribbble.
2) Then it went like this: "Mike, how about a robo-futuristic version of this?" - "Do it!" - "I'll do it!" - "Cool!". Did it.
3) Owlified Mike's drawing in modo 601, to become a tactile robo-futuristic owl.
4) Rendered with left-to-right 1-point light setup for a dramatic look.
5) Post-processed in 2D to add subtle fog, volumetric lights and glows around the eyes.
Now the cool part: This is just a snapshot from the lab where Owltron is under construction. The final thing will hit Dribbble soon.
