OK, I know you are thinking who is this guy and why should he have his own thread? Well, the short answer is that I am hoping this will be the first in many new fan arts by me that I will be posting. The other reason is that everyone else was doing it and I just wanted to be popular.  smile
The first is inspired by the final episode as I really got into drawing the Robot Devil and have some others that I am working on featuring him and Bender which I think turned out kind of fun. Sorry for the bad scan quality. I am not sure why I am not getting better scans but I think it may have something to do with trying to scan off of tracing paper rather than white paper.

Anyways, hope everyone enjoys it/them.

Good picture, but it seems a bit faint.

That was because of the scan. It is actually done with black ink but for some reason it did not scan properly and when I tried scanning to black and white I got all these artifacts on it. If this keeps up I might try copying first and then scanning and see how those turn out as I have never had this problem before but like I mentioned this is the first time I have tried scanning from tracing paper.

You could try increasing the contrast in something like PSP or Photoshop?

I will give that a try next time aslate. It just seems that if you are scanning a black and white picture that the end product should be black and white as well. Down with technology!!  wink

Nice drawing Bendo, great pose and expression on the Robot Devil.

I tried correcting the faintness of the scan in Photoshop to give you an example of what can be done. Check it out here.

Thanks for the cleanup Mercapto but as luck would have it the newest scans all came out in black and white with no problems. Here is a pretty quick one I did with the Robot Devil and Bender.

I am working on one with the Robot Devil and Leela based off of the last episode. That might take awhile to complete though.

I made it slightly smaller in the second one, i think it makes it look a bit cleaner.

I agree aslate. I do scale them down from my original drawing and I am always in a quandry about how much to scale them down from there. I want to get them small enough that they won't be too taxing when people are trying to view them but still be big enough that the detail or the effect of the drawing is not lost. I think the size you have is pretty good though and I may try and keep further scans the same pixel size.
Thanks for all the comments guys.  smile

Copy the layer in photoshop and change the layer properties to multiply.  That's an easy way to darken things in Photoshop.

Another awesome drawing. And I agree that your first drawing looks cleaner, smaller. But it has a looser style when it's bigger, both work well  cool

I used PSP 8 and the colour replacer. Selected the grey line, set it to be replaced with black, adjusted the tolerance a bit, and just covered the whole image.

Thanks for the PS tips and compliments guys (and gals  wink ). I did not get a chance to finish up anything last night so I figured I would post a model that is in the process of being completed. When will it be completed? Who knows! Anyways it is of the Planet Express building and this is my second go at it. I like the look of it and plan to use what I learned here for the next time I build it.

Were you not able to see them Bobby? That is strange if that is the case. Let me know.
I thought FemJesse had a good idea in her other threads about the Futurama guys dressing up for Halloween and decided to do at least on drawing along those lines. So, here is Cubert dressed in a cheap Calculon costume:
