Newgrounds Background Image Theme



Started it yesterday when I suddenly realized Robot Day (Happy Robot Day btw.) was the day after. I am Very satisfied with this. Well, with the actual paper one, at least, the scan didn't turn out as good as it would in beautiful professional utopia land, but I'm still pretty ass happy with it. Also, sorry for all the brown dirt again (it's all I know, leave me alone).
He is an NX type robot, colossal robots built before the war who are rumored to walk aimlessly around the waste, curiously observing their surroundings, sometimes even coming to aid, should one be particularly lucky. They mostly serve as giant rusty monuments sunken in the dirt though.
I did the entire thing mostly in markers, the sky is b6 pencil though (should maybe have gone a bit harder, I'm not super into this grainy pencily texture), and it was a bitch at times. I really need to get into water color or something.

Compared to your other drawings this one is really good.
The light the robot is shining on the character could be more clearly expressed tough.
And the sky should have gone trough the robot instead of around him.
Nonetheless i like it allot.

When I planned the drawing, I designed it for it to be a lot darker, and only later did I realize that the lighting I had wasn't dark enough for the picture and the lighting to be expressed properly, and I couldn't really fix it on paper because I don't want to exhaust my resources too fast (I admit I could have done that it Photoshop, but I feel like that'd be kinda dishonest). This is a problem with the entire picture, the lighting doesn't fit, part of that's because detail and subtle lighting effects are lost in the scan, and parts because reasons.
Also, when I was doing the clouds I wanted them to have varying levels of darkness and varying shapes, it going around him was kind of a coincidence, and as I said before much of the subtler shades of the lighting are lost in scanning. But none the less, it was a poor choice, and I should have put more thought into it.
Thanks for the review, it's nice to get some criticism. God I can rant...

That looks a LOT like that bridge from that one mission in Fallout 3 with the cannibals.
Fuck now I want to play fallout 3!
Also like the design of the robot :P

JesusCondom responds:

I think it looks like every elevated highway ever.

actually kind of love it, the wear on the robot really gets me, worn in all the right ways. dont hide this talent in a bushel basket, derp

JesusCondom responds:

Aw, you're too kind. Also, what's a bushel basket.

Welp, that`s cool. Cool cool cool. I know what you mean, though, if there isn`t a smooth pencil in my hand at all times I`ll go nuts. I think it worked out really well for this, though, the grainy sky contrasts the stripier marks and nice lines most awesomely :D

JesusCondom responds:

Thanks mate. Yeah, I should have picked a harder pencil and spent a little more time on it, make sure it's smooth and delish. Getting kind of tired of all this crap with backgrounds, gonna try me out some watercolor for backgrounds when I can.
