Futuristic twist on pin-up posters uses robots instead of women

Sakke Soini used Photoshop, Maxon Cinema 4D and Octane Render to create the impressive series of posters.


Finnish illustrator Sakke Soini has created an impressive series of posters that puts a futuristic spin on vintage pin-ups.

The series, which is a personal project of Sakke's, shows human figures made up of mechanical, robotic parts striking poses based on traditional pip-up posters.

The posters make an interesting point about the way pin-ups objectify women by maintaining the seductiveness of such posters despite being made up of disjointed shards of metal. It's a strong message that demonstrates that once you objectify someone in an image, you take away their humanity - and all your left with is essentially a robot. And actually that's not sexy at all.

Sakke is a freelance illustrator who has previously worked on projects for the likes of Nylon, Supra Footwear, Nike and more. See more of his work over on his website.

Read on to see more of the illustrations in the series.

Each illustration was created using Adobe Photoshop, Maxon Cinema 4D and Octane Render, resulting in a 3D-effect that uses psychedelic lighting to take that futuristic look even further.
