Metropocomic Freder and Georgy by Rono22 Metropocomic Freder and Georgy by Rono22
Based on the scene from Fritz Lang's "Metropolis". NO, no! Not in a serious manner, you know. Just "inspired" by the scene. ;)

Never trade lives with anyone- at last ask abut clothing size first!

Inked version this time. It was the shortest one so I finished with it first, more to come.

I notice you're doing alot of comic-type Metropolis stuff lately. Well, if you're intersted I was gonna do a comic of Metropolis a few months back but got sidetracked. Anyway, I was wondering if you wanna do a collab on a detailed comic of the film or at least a portion of it. I'm hoping if we start it others in the group might join in and it would become much easier. Could be great. Different styles and interpretations.

Hm, interesting idea, I think I might be of some help :nod: Just tell me exactly what would you like me to do or rather how would you like it to look like.

Great! Well basically I'd like everyone to stick to they're own style and have as much freedom as possible to do what they want. I guess the only restraint would be what part of the film to do and that there's some form of continuity. I guess the best place to start would be the first page. When I first came up with the idea I did Metropolis Page 1 Concept
as a way to get a layout:
I was thinking of making the workers look a bit more futuristic to OUR times rather than the 1920's. So maybe we could work on that first?

Sounds to me like a greater project so I think you'll need some help from others :nod: So let us start The Metropolis Comic!!!
I agree, the best thing will be to start from the beginning. More futuristic you say... hm, you mean, you'd like the whole thing to look more "modern" an cyberpunk-ish than it is? Something more like Mr Kaluta amazingly did in his "Metropolis" version ( [link] ) or something more in the spirit of movies like "I, Robot" and stuff like that?

See that's the tricky part. How do you make it more modern without changing it too much. It's perfect the way it is but I can't help think that a slightly more modern feel could be quite good from a comic perspective.

I'd never seen Mr Kaluta'swork before. I quite like these three images: [link] [link] and [link] because they're still very true to the film but he's put his stye onto it too.

Not I Robot anyways. Not actually in the future. Lets say the first page is the Shift Change. So the workers would have pratical but futuristic clothes and the tunnel would have more...I dunno...ominous machinery. Like the bar gate that lifts up could instead be more like a door outta Aliens or something, y'know. I'll do some sketches in a while and put 'em up. That's probably the easiest. We should probably note each other too.
