G.I. Robot by Ramón Pérez

i'm not sure if it's a time zone thing or francesco is just eager to get us started... but i'm slipping this one in on eastern standard.

crunching for time this week with a few deadlines looming i decided to keep it simple and do a simple headshot as my fellow twart really covered all the bases with their amazing renditions of our metalloid friend.

so this round was done straight to inks, using a #3 (still working my way up to the #6 mitch utilizes!), along with some zip and a dash of colour in photoshop.

HA! Not quite monday yet here, but I was close enough I decided to go for it ;) I fixed the time so everything is "in order" ;)
Great headshot and even if "kept it simple" there is so much story there, like the girlfriend photo on the helmet (hey, Robot have GF too ;)) and the reflection of the enemy on his goggles (love the shape of them, btw, very stylish). :)

I love it, man! Those sun glasses are a great.

There's a heck of a lot of attitude in this mug considering he's a robot. Great inks Ramon, and the girlfriend photo is a really nice touch.

Lovely work. The photo in the helmet is a nice touch, along with the balck/white/red colour scheme. Works every time.

May we all share that fire in GI Robot's eyes! Well done!

Damn, if that's "keepin' it simple" I'm in trouble! So many great little nuances in this illo, Ramon! The eye reflections, the card in the helmet, the deco zip toned background motif. Great work!
