Black and white science fiction illustration

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.

Illustration of a robot with a brain.

Another unused design for a client that I inked in and added more elements to the composition.  This guy is a robot with a brain.  Looks like he is out for a stroll in what is left of an abandon RadioShack.

Attack of The Friendly Robots

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.

Robot Sketches

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.

Sketching during class

These are some sketches I created during one of my late night teacher education classes.   Nothing better than sketching in class.  Sketching in class was one of my favorite activities in my elementary school classes.  Well, in every class I have ever taken in my life, really.

A robot and his dog

This is the last of three retro robot drawings I created. I created the drawing with pen and ink. The color is applied in Photoshop. I’ll have to try another subject for my next sketch. I’m sure someday soon I will return to the subject of retro robots.

Retro robot illustration

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.

Retro robot drawings I created when I was supposed to be doing something else

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.
