Sad robots

Approved final robot design!

The picture on his chest will change throughout the animation, probably to exclamation points and hearts and little pictures of pizza and things.



Here are some of my silhouette thumbnails for the Flying Saucer ad.

This is a rough idea of what the final one might look like, based on feedback from Flying Saucer. We liked the clampy hands and noodle arms, but wanted a kind of traditional robot monster rather than something like the slug or giant rabbit.

The ad will be mostly very sharp black and white, with bright colours and gradients, but all very simple, graphic shapes, think Patapon or Michel Gagne.

I'm working with Bryanna Lindsey on this project, but as she's still in school, it's been put on hold so she can concentrate on her classes. More images as soon as I have them.


Rriilp Update

So, remember that water creature painting I was doing? When the computer crashed, I misplaced him deep inside my reference folder. I found him yesterday! Obviously, still a WIP, but this version looks a little better than the last one I posted.

I'm tempted to redo his feet, and I'm beginning to believe he needs more jewelry. Opinions?


Self Portraits

Done in a couple of hours today just for kicks. It's been a long time since I did a self portrait.

For comparison, here's one I had on the computer from 2003.
