I’m a pretty big fan of RoboCop. I love the first two movies. They are the kind of movies where any time I saw them on TV while flipping around I would stop and watch. I recently showed them to my son for the first time and he really enjoyed them too. He’s got such an iconic look, the concept is so cool, and the movies are done so well…what’s not to love? I think I may actually like RoboCop 2 more than the first movie as it just ramps up the insanity, violence, satire/humor, and basically everything I like about the first movie. It’s one of those rare sequels that just takes what the first movie did and does it even better.
I’ve said in the past that if there was any character I would want to have in a crossover with Black Snow it would be RoboCop. There is just a lot about that team up that makes sense. The Detroit connection, the tone, the focus on police. It would be a match made in heaven. This was fun to draw. I like drawing RoboCop, I also did it for Inktober last year. The shape of his helmet and armor, the reflections, the lower face being exposed…it’s just great character design. The reboot should have stuck closer to that iconic original look. Speaking of, I didn’t hate the remake, but it’s not something I’ve ever felt the need to go back and watch again.
