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

This is exceptional! Cannot wait for the film too. As long as it's got the balance of darkness and odd humour of the original it'll kick ass.

Very good work! I'm not sure I'm going to like the new movie, though. Padilha said he wants to add more humanity to RoboCop, which I think is a mistake because the tragedy of the original movie was Murphy losing his humanity and having to fight for it a piece at a time, never fully recovering it. I hope it's not bad, because the RoboCop franchise certainly doesn't need another bad film to soil the name.

Nevertheless, I love this work, and I think I'm going to have it printed.

First artwork on Deviant to make me comment! Man, this is just epic. I wish they would make an entire movie just based around this picture. I love the whole concept of full on warfare, and ED209's fighting side by side with Robocop (or even multiple Robocops). Great detail, great art, nicely done!
