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.

amazing work. Iron Owl
@Gianluca Giacoppo Iron Owl, love that name! Iron Man's pet maybe? ;)
Really love this.
Haha so sick @Franz. Love the lighting and glossy metal textures. Well done sir!
@Xi Lin Thanks :D
@Mike Cummings Glad you like it! I still have a few more surprises for you. Will dribbble them from time to time to keep it interesting ;)
Keep it coming dude :D
@Mike Cummings It was more work than I anticipated, but the extra-effort of using only instances and clones will eventually pay off when it comes to all other Owltron variations :D
Dude I bet. I spent countless hours on it in Illustrator, can't imagine rendering all the details in 3D. Kudos though :D
Yep. He's definitely from the Grid!
@Mike Cummings Yeah, while working with your drawing I was often thinking: Oh man, this must have taken forever to draw! Was a pleasure to use it as a backdrop :D
@Melissa Brunet Thanks :D
Looks like the Owl is now awake! Great work!
@Ian Mesa Great thought! Actually, my plan with this one was to make it a bit brighter than the previous shot, which was too dark for the bright Dribbble website. Quite challenging when dribbbling dark stuff.
Posted as the Robot of the Day!
@Doug Vander Meulen Thanks for the awesomeness! Tweeted your robot blog!
