ROBOCOP : BATTLEFIELD by Sallow ROBOCOP : BATTLEFIELD by Sallow
It was recently announced that the Director Jose Padilha ( Elite Squad ) is to direct a reboot of the Robocop franchise. I am a huge fan of the Verhoven classic and welcome this reboot with open arms, in the hands of Jose Padilha I amm sure it will be fanastic. Inspired by this news I set about creating a homage to the classic itself .

This is by far the largest image Ive done, in terms of time/ content and indeed file size 10300 x 5050 pixels. Approx 60 hours to complete. The image is all about setting the scene and composing a strong mood , one significatley different than any of the previous incarnations of the franchise. Iv re-designed the look and feel of Ed-209 ( giving a harder edge and miltary feel, cops, riot police, punks. Going for a much more gritty, visualy violent and manic feel overall. When it came to Robocp himself, I played around with sleek designs ( but sleek to me, felt too much like IronMan so I dropped that idea), massive mech vesions and so on. I settled with a throw back to the original but with much more outer machanical elements, as a bare bones , hardend , military machine.

Iv purposely left the helmet off in this version, I wanted the human face to balance the added mass of machine. I may do another version later, with the helmet and play around with some more design elements.
thanks
