G.I. Robot by Ron Salas




I was planning to add some colour to this--and I probably will at a later date--but I'll call this finished for now.
I'm really having fun doing this stuff.

Lovely. I really like how you use white as a graphic tool. Not a lot of people do it.

Masterful use of the shading, Ron, not just to render the image but also to set the mood. Fantastic! :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Great job, dude! Love the contrast of the worn down robot vs the propaganda poster. Good work, man!

Mr. Hawthorne and Francisco said it best. The contrast and the mood are both really excellent in this, and it really allows the art to resonate (with me, at least) on a deeper level. Great work!

Ron, you have absolutely mastered the diagonal as an anchoring motif. I love the emotion in this one!

I'm still getting over the fact that you did this with markers. Unbelievable, Ron. Great staging, and I love the poster. "THIS IS YOUR FRIEND", Awesome.
