Second Variety by Zaiye Second Variety by Zaiye
David the little boy robot from Philip K. Dick's story "Second Variety." He may look innocent and nonthreatening, but that is exactly the point.

Captured a nice apocalyptic/disaster feel here, I like the shading of the debris, and your description and his expression makes me curious about the boy :nod:

Creeps but excellently drawn.
I wonder what that story is about.^^

Thank you! The story is a short story and it is very good. If you like sic-fi, then you should definitely read it. :)

Ummmmm.......
I just kinda meant that it was a cool coincidence that someone who made a really cool picture also knows who PKD is... He's not the most popular SF author out there.... Even in America it's hard to find copies of his books and short stories....
Thanks for the suggestion though!

This is really interesting. You've made an amaizng work here. The boy is so expressive, he passes to us so much fear and innocence... but i guess he is not this little angel... Great lines, the work with shadows and highlights is amazing. The background is so full of details. I really like this piece! :)

Huh... interesting... does it have any connection to the movie "AI: Artificial Intelligence" or the poem it's based on?

I'm not sure, but I do know that this story was the inspiration to The Terminator. :)

Really?... Huh... it's just funny, cuz in AI's also about a robot kid named David, and he too has a teddy bear( but his is a robot as well)... Have you seen that movie?
Reply
:iconzaiye:
Zaiye Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2012  Student
Oh really> Interesting. :D I think this teddybear is also a robot, although I can't remember. But this David is evil and doesn't talk much (or at all, but I can't remember). Also, David is just a model name for a whole bunch of robots that look the same. Kind of creepy, really. :D

Huh... well, ok, the David in A.I. wasn't necessarily evil... but it is revealed later that they made a model line of David robots... Have you not seen that movie?

Oh, ok... I started it, but never read it all the way through ^^;... I outta go back and read it sometime :P... Might wanna check out the movie too, it's a Steven Spielberg film. I think I should warn you though, it's not a real lighthearted movie, it's kind of melancholy, but if your into sci-fi (which, I get the impression you are) it's actually pretty interesting...
