I started this illustration during a meeting and finished the composition and inking at home. It is an illustration of a woman and her robot traversing some sort of galactic scrapyard.
In Photoshop I made a few illustrations by coloring some of my inked line drawings. I made a happy mistake on the gray robot. I accidentally dumped red color on the black lines; thought it created a nice effect, so I kept it. I should try some more color work. However, I have to get back to my intrepid time traveling kids. It would not be kind to leave them stranded in the Ice Age.
Here are a few robot sketches from my sketch book. Robots are interesting to draw because they can be whatever shapes you can imagine. I used a Faber-Castell artist pen to create most of the sketches. The pen has a brush-like tip that is good for creating a variety of line weights. Moreover, that pen can sure move smoothly and quickly across the surface of your paper. After scanning the sketches, I added some type in Photoshop.
Here is the second of three retro robot drawings I created. This drawing is made with pen and ink and the color is applied in Photoshop. I came up with this robot’s design after looking at some 1950′s toy robots. I have always been a fan of B-Movies from yesteryear and of pulp science-fiction in all its wonderful forms.
Here is the first of three retro robot drawings I created at work when I was supposed to be doing something else. It had been a while since I drew a retro robot. I tried some flashy color in Photoshop. This first one is an image of a superhero girl battling a robot. I have always been a fan of B-Movies from yesteryear and of pulp science-fiction in all its wonderful forms.
