G.I. Robot by Nathan Fairbairn


I told myself I'd make life easy for myself this week and just do a headshot and this just came to me. It was a total breeze to do -- about 2 hours from idea to pencils to digital paints (Photoshop). You can check out the pencils on my sketchblog, if you're interested.

If the Army used robots to recruit, I might do it!

Awesome concept, Nathan!

Declan Shalvey said...

Really nice idea man. I'm stumped as to what im gonna do.

Urban Barbarian said...

Damn! You beat me to it! I was gonna do a version of this! Not as well as you've done it but I was gonna try at least!

Dan McDaid said...

Great idea, beautifully executed. Good work, sah!

Nathan Fairbairn said...

Thanks a lot, good people! There really wasn't much to it -- this one was all about the concept.

Dan (Panosian): as soon as the idea came to me I knew I had to jump right on it before someone else beat me to the lazy train! (And I couldn't allow that to happen, cuz I had absolutely no clue what else I could do with the character.)

Again man, you're blowing me away with the rendering. GREAT idea.

Ron Salas said...

Great job, Nathan! You captured that vintage feel with the rendering perfectly.
