I saw this image online and thought it could use a crowd and a gigantic robot. Pac Rim 2 has been announced and I'm super excited about it. I've heard groans about the director, but let's face it - robots vs monsters. Even if they do a shitty job (which I doubt) we still have another movie about two things I love most.
The process on this one was super simple. The mech is a black silhouette with color samples of the surrounding colors. I hacked up the cliff face to give it visual direction. The people are indicated as opposed to labored over as I really didn't what that to be the focus and the extension of the scene was necessary to balance out the composition. I started to labor over the mech at the end so I decided to save it out and appreciate it of what it was supposed to be. A simple sketch of a subject matter I really like.
