    pretty damn awesome. Love the details. My only nitpic is that it doesn't quite look finished in places. Otherwise I love the sort of "zombie-robot" motif

    Cool job.

    They have that great, haphazard, junkyard look, which makes them look that much better.

    Also though, I think that the characters themselves dont look really that threatening, but the fact that they're shown looming mindlessly toward the viewer makes them eerie enough to be scary. I like 'em.

    Oh yeah, about the figure in the 'middleground' on the left, I think you should change the color of the insignia on his faceplate. It looks like it was supposed to resemble the grill of a car. In the full version, it just looks like a random chunk of metal. In the detail shot though, it looks like an insignia for something. If you made it a dingy gold, I think it would help it stand out some more. Now however, you can't tell what it is, and it just looks like there's a piece of dingy whiteish metal there.

    These are awesome though, and I'd love to know what game they're from.

    This is a job well done.

    I love the atmosphere that you created on this image, which sort of emit that eerie, lonely and hopeless feeling to it.

    The zombie robots are just plain cool man. The designs are fine the way it is, whether it's simple and less mechanized in design because as a whole it makes an aesthetically pleasing visual. If you're trying to capture mindless robots come to life, then this is the way to go!

    Very cool. The rusted metal texture especially is painted really well.

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback!

    Oregano - I agree, some of the places don't look very finished looking back on it now.

    foster - Thanks!!!! (long-time fan)

    Paul - I kinda struggled with making them look dangerous and gangly/zombie-like. I opted for feeling menacing rather than looking dangerous. The insignia is supposed to look like a car grill, thanks for noticing. I'll probably go back and rework it a bit. Thanks!

    Venndetta, Groover, dr01d - Thanks for all the positive feedback!

    You've made me proud...!

    I gotta give it to ya, Nick, I didn't know you had such a creepy side. I am impressed to no end! There is nothing like some good 'ol rusted metal rendering to brighten one's day. I especially like the window into the nearest machine's head...sloshing fluid (blood?) within machinery is territory I know well! Great rust effects and pitting on the craniums.
    Overall, you have journeyed well into creepytown! (This coming from a long time resident... )

    How about a nice print on PBM?....he he!

    Talk to you later,

    W
