I thought this was based on the Daleks. I now realize it is a pretty distinct style in its own right. I say, "In its own right" a lot. I just love how it's taken at a dutch angle. Well, maybe that wasn't quite your intention. These guys really do have a mean design.
I just love how the lightning illuminates them. It shows great use of shadows. I never thought of robots as something that had shadows like that. I guess it's just because they're not living organisms. I guess you can leave no comment.
