Changed the colors a bit so that They felt better. I liked the sepia quality of the last one but I wanted one that made the robots look as cool as they did in my mind.

Here's what I said about it before.

Why not send robots ahead to get everything settled? Yes, that will work. But the robots had a mind of their own and things that should never have been invented were built and replicated in countless numbers. The West was theirs.

In the smaller mining towns man's law was forgotten. An open source mining program would get you work, a gun would help you keep it. Out in Botro things went much the way they did in any such town.

Snake was a crack shot with a rail gun from any range. Big Mex had been known to crush a robot's CPU with a single flat-footed blow. They were loyal to the sheriff beyond question or doubt. But Snake was a robot with needs that sometimes got him into trouble, and Big Mex's temper ran hot.The Sheriff had a good processor, but even the best coding will have bugs, and the smallest corruption can cause an snowvalanche of pain.

Way cool art! But it looks like the robot on the right side's legs are on backwards or something.

GMV!

I so wanted to draw robots for this one and I couldn't think of any possible way to make it work. Congrats on figuring out a way that not only fits, but is awesome.

Walker, Texas ranger makes sense now. There’s no way a simple man could perform such extraordinary feats without being a cyborg with a penchant for pain and a jonesing for justice, not to mention a hankering for helping and a craving for killing, along with a passion for peace...

And tears that would cure cancer. It's too bad he never cried.

Awesome job! I love the way you drew the robots! GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.
