More musical inspiration

This image started off being watercoloured to a song called Basshead by Bassnectar.
Very repetitive beat and lyric. By the time the robot shell was done and coloured in, the song was over (took a while to get the colours of rust I wanted..think I'm out of practice with mixing colours).
New songs started in, and I wanted to keep with the mechanical motif.
Still, for all of 20 minutes actual work (including colour mixing), I think it's not too shabby.

The robot & background are watercolour on a grainy brush, the swirls are watercolour off a diffuse brush, the gears are thick wet impesto and the shadow-aura around the robot & yellow glow in the corners are airbrush. The eyes are simple ink.
