Futureworld illustration - 2009.

A sort of nod to the original Westworld movie although The Terminator might prove a more topical reference for the younger fans out there! My colleague Dominic's wife, Sharon posed for me during the Jack Cross sessions a few years ago now (playing both female parts) and this portrait was an outake. I re-worked it a bit with the face plate and added the circuitry and mechanics underneath. It has a kind of whimsy about it that reminds me of the early Metal Hurlant covers. Liked the focus on the eye in this one too. Nice and veined. The rabbit pattern on the shirt (Sharon's own! ;) really pops in the final image.

And no, Sharon can't remove her face plate in real life.


  1. Very nice indeed. I watched Westworld the other week, classic film and a very iconic one too. Colours look great on this as well.

  2. Yep, definately makes me think of a female Yul Brynner (not a pleasant thought that one). As usual incredible lovely detailed work, Gary. What do you use to ink with to keep the tiny details so clean and crisp?
