'MY robot!' page 1

'MY robot' is for the upcoming 'Robot' anthology.
The idea for this story came fully formed, but it still seems to be turning out a little different.
I'll post these in order as they're done, there's 6 pages in total, and if I get cracking they should all be up over the next couple of weeks.
I might have gone overboard with the grey tones, but I was having fun.

The grey tones are great, it gives the page a painted look like some of the black and white painted work from the old Epic Magazine. Very nice piece of work, look forward to seeing the rest.

Superb stuff. I really, really like your style here, and I think the grey tones are spot on.

Peter - Hit and miss as it was, there was some great stuff in Epic, it's where I discovered Vaughan Bode's genius.
Danny - Will do, page 2 coming soon.
Andrew - Thank you Andrew-San.
Paul - I remember your rec. for Kid Koala back in the bad old days - which you got out of, and I'm still living! Thanks for the comparison.
Kelvin - Cheers. I had wanted to try and change my usual comic drawing style but it's harder than I thought. The grey tones help though, glad you like them.

Paul, the bottom eye details remind me of that Disney Space Opera Classic The Black Hole. Old Bob and Vincent! :-D Class!

Ta Mr Bling. Vincent? Bob? Totally intentional I'm proud to admit!

Ha! I knew those eyes from somewhere!

I'm also really fond of that welding tier of panels. Really nice light and shadow work there.
