ROM vs The Brood, the full picture

Left click to enlarge
So here it is, the completed ROM vs The Brood sketch art. Didn't think I'd get to it this soon a couple of weeks ago the idea of finishing this felt like such a chore. But sometimes when the time is right what felt like a drag before becomes a slam dunk.

And continuing the ROM cover easter eggs on the big screen from the last posting here's the first time I've ever come across a Robocop review video on youtube that calls out the various ROM covers (as well as a copy of Iron Man) spotted during the liquor store hold up scene which we see at the 2:50 mark . . .

  1. Nice work. That Brood is getting choked the fuck out!

    I'm pretty sure they made reference to the comics on The Criterion Collection DVD back in the day...

  2. Super art upgrade Dave. I liked the version with the thought balloon enough to keep it, too. Reminds me of the great old comic covers with dialogue on 'em.

    1. thanks, after having looked over both versions for the past couple of days i think this one looks like some kind of bonus pin up page where as the other looks more like a typical comic book panel.

  3. Like in the back pages, where they do the artists rendering before it was condensed for the cover. It's definitely wall worthy, Dave. LOVE IT!
