Fantastic work. I'm always very impressed by artists who can draw lifelike characters AND the more technical stuff. You can do both, and here, you prove that you can even do both at the same time. Plus it's funny.
hmm, does the mess look cool? technical stuff can look good as a mess sometimes. i just finished drawing a weird organic car thing. it's closer to how i like drawing mechanical things. i'll be posting it soon.
thank you for the compliment good sir. i would approximate that this took me close to 6 hours to complete. usually i don't spend so much time on a sketch, but this one had to be done right with insane ammounts of hatching strokes.
Whoa dude, you should be real proud you finished it, it would be a shame we couldn't all see this work of beauty. It's mad complex and so dam good, the ink with white combo on that paper is so brilliant!!
That is one big intricate work! I am truly watching this in awe. I didn't even knew my jaw could drop all the way like it did. Seriously; I think this is a strong piece in every respect. Not only have you added plenty of delicious details (the eye candy!!! ) but also chose a dynamic base and a high quality technique. It looks really mechanical and makes me wonder if you are a professional. Are you? This could easily be an illustration for a magazine, in my opinion. And of course, I love the attention for humor too. "SMUSH" An amazing piece of art, that is really where it comes down to.
bleeding doesnt really concern me... i hardly ever use every page to its maximum in notebooks. about a fifth of the paper is completed, and maybe half of that went on the site (back in the good old days of paper....ah...seems so long ago)
hehehe, i love that only the thumb is smushing her (why'd i assume the photographer was female?) - it shows a deliberate 'ew' factor for the robot. 'ew, greasy little human' *shakes hand to get muck off*
ballpoint is great for detail, i've found. it's the best actually, better than pencil, or even .25mm liquid ink pens. i'm glad you like the perspective. i'm starting to really like bending figures through perspective. thanks!
