My wife and daughters, who have pronounced my robots as cute, are all creeped out by by this fellow. Indeed, this may be the 'darkest' robot I've made. He's one of my favorites. He's also my first wooden robot.
Materials: His head is from a Mardi Gras necklace, his body is a handle from an old awl, arms and hands are from an old typewriter, cogs from an alarm clock, and my favorite parts of him are the old ball and socket joint shoulders that I have no idea what they are originally from.
My next bot that has a skull might have led eyes. 

Pattern or design used: My own design - Darin Wiebe
