Some time ago I've read in somebody's blog that reference sheets are useless, because they become obsolete with further evolution of your character. I faced this situation in work on this picture, because I decided to re-design saurian robot Slaughterdile so now he differs a lot from his old reference sheet. I like his new outlook more, it’s more alien. So mush of pathos in this lazy reptilian face, steadily looking on his opponent Smashingun. They're two metal brutes matching each other. I’ll draw this staredown confrontation once again from another angle to depict Smashingun from the front view. And if this “flat style” experiment will satisfy me, possibly I’ll made a short pop-corny comic with a fun brawl between Dile and Gun and first two pictures will be the first two frames of it.
