G.I. ROBOT by Chris Samnee


Thanks for a really great subject this week, Mr. Fowler!
Drawing a robot and dinosaurs made me feel like a kid again :D

For any of you folks that aren't quite as nerdy as most of us twartists, here's a link to G.I. Robot's Wikipedia page.

Also, the pencils and line work for this piece can be seen over on my blog.

That dino is fantastic! Love the prehistoric-looking environment resplendent with a sinister serenity. Well done!

I heard that this is how the Land Before Time series ends. Way to not give a spoiler alert, Samnee. Sheesh.

How do you take such a pulpy character and set-up and make it so beautifully melancholy? :)

Gorgeous stuff, Chris.

Ron Salas said...

Masterful composition and masterful drawing. I love how you rendered the scaly dinosaur skin and how you managed to make him readable.
Fantastic.

these illustrations are great. i remember seeing the G.I. robot character in an issue of D.C.s Who's Who many years ago.
