Science Fiction Art Calling Card
I like this robot a lot and I should try to draw it again. It's sort of Robby the Robot meets "Hector" the Robot of Saturn 3 ( probably the most frightening robot I remember seeing when I was a kid.)
The inking and the symmetry is a little rough, which I find is easy to get away with and something I actually TRY to build into my pictures when I'm doing fantasy stuff, but it doesn't have the same appeal when I'm trying to describe metals and plastics. Also the separation of subjects in the picture planes is a little rough, maybe even a bit confused, something that could be mitigated with color or even greyscale, but I'm going to xerox them so Oh well.
