This is the first time I've posted any artwork in here so I hope I've done it right. Superquad's awesome black and white rendering of Officer Murphy in action reminded me I had this piece kicking about which I did way back when the first Robocop movie came out. It's not traced - I placed a grid drawn on acetate over the original cinema poster and then scaled it down to an A4 piece of paper I'd drawn a grid on to get the basic shapes and proportions transferred over in pencil. Then I let my OCD run riot on translating the shades into line details before inking the whole thing with a bog-standard basic black ink pen. Nothing fancy here. It's a lot of work but I'd happily turn out one of these a day. Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, I'd take a popular poster of the day and make it into one of these. Then get photocopies and colour them in because I'm a sad nerd. Unfortunately this seems to be the only piece that's survived the years. I had a flood from the water tank in my attic about fifteen years ago and it destroyed about 95% of the artwork I'd got stored up there. Anyways, at least I have this one left to show. I'm not sure I'd have the patience to do this kind of thing anymore. My regular artwork nowadays is less sophisticated.
