______________________________

This painting of Adams and Morbius was done from a 35mm slide I took right off the movie screen when Forbidden Planet was shown at an "art house" theater in Atlanta. A group of friends and I took over 300 slides from the movie.





Recently I used Paint.net to paste the two figures over a screen grab of the scene in the movie to give the painting a better background. It turned it pretty well.

Notice that part of Adams' back from the screen grab had to be blended with the painting to make this little experiment work!






This painting was done from a black & white still from the movie. Robby was shaking hands with Cookie in the photo, so I had to change his right arm a bit.





These poses of Warren Stevens were also done from slides taken directly from the movie screen. The figure of Adams is from one of the color publicity stills.





The publicity shot I used for the drawing below is so good I think it's just as much a work of art as my humble drawing. In fact, it took me several attempts to get it right. I kept screwing up Altaira's nose. The drawings below it were all done from B&W publicity shots.















And these are just robot designs I did for the fun of it. The next two drawings were done with gel pens. The originals actually look metallic because of the ink!






This robot was designed for a story idea I had. The 2nd picture below is a closeup of the head, and the 3rd picture is a different rendering of the head, but pasted onto the same body.








This is what the alien suits in Earth vs the Flying Saucers should have looked like.

I added these two drawings just for fun the night of the Super Bowl (2012) when I started thinking how much fun it would be if football and baseball players were robots.
