big smush by nicktheartisticfreak big smush by nicktheartisticfreak
black ballpoint and white gelpen on earthbound paper. adjusted colors in photoshop.
this drawing sat for a long time as a half inked sketch. there is hope for unfinished work after all! :D

the automaton developped a sudden dislike for his photographer.

I meant to comment earlier, but, wow. What kind of amount of time does that take to make? And I love how you can skip so fluidly from one medium to another.

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.

Man,... I haven't spent 6 hours on a drawing in... a really long time... Maybe I should again.

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!!


Excellent work!!!

:omg: 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. :lmao: Seriously; I think this is a strong piece in every respect. Not only have you added plenty of delicious details (the eye candy!!! :drool: ) 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" :rofl: An amazing piece of art, that is really where it comes down to. :clap:

what's your brand of gel pen? i've been tempted to get back to ink lately....

it's a Staedtler gel roller, 0.4mm. it does not cover certain inks, they bleed through. so i sometimes use acrylic ink, or white-out. they are bleedproof.

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*

it's like hitting a nail with a two ton sledge hammer. i'm glad the humour got through :D i honestly didn't consider the robot's expression.

Killer amazing robot. Nice detailed work. And I love the smoke. Very creative. The perspective makes it appear very large. Nice work my friend!

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!

it's actually pretty stormy here - I went to a stormbraker by the sea and when the waves hit it, they were like 9 meters high, really, men were tiny that day.
