Illustration Friday "Hierarchy"


For this week's Illustration Friday topic of hierarchy (a system in which people are ranked one above the other according to status or authority) I kept thinking of Batman and Robin. The way that superheros and their sidekicks all have a ranking. So I can up with Super Space Girl and her sidekick Gamma Kitty. They are fighting the evil Cyclop-tobot! For some reason I really like illustrating robots fighting cute kids- what's that about? Anyway... this took about 5 hours and is a Illustrator/Photoshop collaboration.

I like the subtle textures in your work as well as the retro-mod style.

Awesome retro feel to this...when I was growing up I didn't know better and loved most cartoons...then as I got older and more visually aware I choked at how ghastly a lot of cartoons were...then as I've grown older still and we are sometimes inundated with the same looking slickness over and over again I've learned to appreciate that nostalgic feel...Tops on this one!
