Holding Hands by Trish2 Holding Hands by Trish2
This deviation is for the Forbidden Love contest that Emmil is having. You can find out more about it here: [link]

First - The concept:
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

For those who don't know, WALL-E is a robot that has been functioning non-stop for 700 years after humans leave earth. When we meet him, we learn that he exists as many humans today do, go to work, go home, rest, watch TV and... we learn that not only is WALL-E alone, but he feels alone... until he meets EVE...

While most people might not think of WALL-E and EVE as having a forbidden love, I thought of it more as an unheard of or maybe even unthinkable. These robots (in particular WALL-E) were not programmed with personalities or what we'd think of as artificial intelligence. So how is it that two robots have managed to evolve beyond their programming and for lack of a better term for it, fall in love? In a way, one might consider love between "defective" robots (or even "defective" people) as forbidden. The idea of such a thing happening is unthinkable (though if you've seen the movie, completely wonderful and makes total sense), so I thought that this would be a different take on the idea of forbidden love.

Second - The Technique:

Yeah, I'm an artist. I primarily work in 3d and other stuff, so to choose Digital Painting is a definate break from my usual medium. I've maybe done about 5 or 6 digital paintings before, with some of my 3d renders enhanced here and there with some minor digital painting. I have never anything this extensive, so this was a lot of hard work for me, trying to figure out how to do all of this. All of it was done in Photoshop with looking at lots and lots of references of WALL-E and EVE.

I've wanted to break into the realm of digital painting for a long time. I'll definitely do more. I just hope it will get easier over time... because all I can say at this point is: Whew!

Third - Last but not least:
WALL-E and EVE are copyright of Pixar/Disney (of course)

I give permission to the :iconw-e-love-wall-e: w-e-love-wall-e club to post this submission.

While this exact scene didn't happen in the movie, I can imagine it happening after the movie is over.

I seem to remember WALL·E breaking that lamp when he bumped into it... And now it's fixed?

Anyway, great painting.

And I find it interesting how everyone goes "awww" at the moment, and yet, no one seems to be fazed about the post-apocoliptic scenery behind them.
