This Illustration Friday topic was well suited to my 11 year old son and he has today off school, so here is his illustration, both the original (below) and, because I couldn't keep my hands off it, my interpretation of his vision, so to speak (left).

Go Adam! I like his bold use of lines and fab robotic teeth.
So cool.

That looks a lot like what Micah has been drawing lately. I'm ever so glad that whenever he is finished a new drawing, he still comes straight to me and says, "Dad, I created a new creature".
Tell Adam that I noticed the ribs on his robot...get it...Adam's ribs?

Hah! Both are great! Adam's robot looks very menacing, and your treatment looks like he's got some kind of death asteroid behind him.

Talented Adam! The apple doesn't fall far from the the detail and imagination! What fabulous, luminescent green eyes in Adam's original. Gotta get my 11-year-old grandson going on this theme so I have something to post :-)

You both did so good!!! This is not my favourite theme, but i like seeing what everybody else has done! I need to learn photoshop! I like that he made this and you can add to it and he is ok with that! It does have your signature textural quality going on. I love the way adam made the eyes!!!

Really scary!

Reminds me of the skeletons from the old Sinbad movie which were extremely cruel.

By the way, I saw that you found "Thinking About Art". I highly suggest that you give the artists interview artists project a whirl, I would love to see how it would turn out.

An amphibious robot, no less. I love the robotic arm-bands.

I definately prefer Adam's original; although a composit of the two would be good, too. Use your background and Adam's bot together.

I love them both. This topic had me wishing my son was still at home since it is something boys seem to love to draw.

I have files of neat stuff that the kids have drawn- Micah always has some crazy weapon- toting creature as well! Love it.
