    This painting of Adams and Morbius was done from a 35mm slide I took right off the movie screen when Forbidden Planet was shown at an "art house" theater in Atlanta. A group of friends and I took over 300 slides from the movie.

    This painting was done from a black & white still from the movie. Robby was shaking hands with Cookie in the photo, so I had to change his right arm a bit.

    Each of these poses of Warren Stevens were also done from slides taken directly from the movie screen.

    The publicity shot I used for the drawing below is so good I think it's just as much a work of art as my humble drawing. In fact, it took me several attempts to get it right. I kept screwing up Altaira's nose. The drawings below it were all done from B&W publicity shots.

    This drawing was done as a preliminary sketch for a painting I never did, based on the familiar color 8X10 glossy. The original is pretty pale, so I had to adjust the contrast considerably with my computer.

    And these are just robot designs I did for the fun of it. The next two drawings were done with gel pens. The originals actually look metallic because of the ink!

    I added these two drawings just for fun the night of the Super Bowl (2012) when I started thinking how much fun it would be if football and baseball players were robots.

    :cool::D Those are good. I wonder if anyone thought to have ROBOTS play sports, so that no humans would get hurt. :cool::cool:

    Bud, that is some great work! I absolutely love seeing original works inspired by old classics like Forbidden Planet.

    The robot shots are cool; I like the first one in particular, with the 'fins' at the shoulders & hips it has a bit of a retro feel to it.

    Thanks for the kind remarks, folks. Based on all those robot drawings, you can imagine how much I enjoyed Real Steel.
