I put a human sized cyclopsbot in with heroes for the may submission. I've also have 2 giant sized ones with german markings in the works. The 1st is a larger version of the original with additional details and the second is a completely new drawing in a more dynamic pose. I'm excited to see an imagined army of german clunkers marching across the battel field.
I've also a cleaned up version of the walker that I'm going to paint up and mark for the allied forces.
With any luck the May Horde will have heroes, robots, and zombies a plenty for a brutal Weird War Skirmish.
It's a little less retro now, but retro robots are designed soo badly it's hurts me. Their lack of realistic joints makes it difficult to translate motion, or pose other than standing there.
The original sketch unintentionally had two different elbow types, and the head was too far forward. The head position would have been okay on anything with a human like neck, but I picture the robot with more of a rotating head mounted on top of a disk, and not having the range of motion that a human neck would, so it looked off, from the perspective of how I imagined it.
I have 2 more droids I just sketched out as well, but they are decidedly less retro and more Deathwalker like. I'm going to hold off on finishing them for now, since their not part of this months theme, and I may use them for a future project I have in mind.
I started to color the back art when I realized I drew it incorrectly. The outlines matched up, but which shoulder is forward doesn't. I knew something didn't look 100% right, and it took me until now to realize what it was. I've already redrawn it, but it will set me back a bit.

He looks great.
Will you be offering him in different poses? I'd like to see the marines turning a corner in the derelict space ship, and meet up with 5 of these guys. Wonder what the landing party will do as the robots reboot ...
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
