I have to draw robots every day at work. I just finished the new game Metal Arms glitch in the system. I would recommend you follow DC tutorial on his website. You'll learn that when you have to draw robots, it is alot more creative and "freestyle" considering you don't have to follow any rules or correct anatomy like you would if you had to draw people.
go to www.dougchiang.com and link to robota/ studio tips.
You can use this technique either with tradional pens or in photoshop as well. Remmember this is only one of many different techniques you can follow, but I find it helpfull when you are just trying to make interesting shapes, plates, ..robotic stuff.
Hope it helps
..and go buy Metal Arms!!!
