Day 1 of 30DaysOfCreativity 2013 - Robot
It's june again (even if the weather in austria still thinks it's november) and this means it's 30daysofcreativity again!
Since the inspirational calender for this year has "toys" on day 1 I make a photo of one of my Robots as my day 1 project

At home I saw that the cylinders had a face and added some eyes and a little background
