Last night I had an over-whelming urge to draw…of course, I started sketching out little robots, just trying to hash out some ideas for my book. What I ended up with was a strange compilation of robots that were eerily reminiscent of early 90’s cartoons..! For some reason, I kept humming the theme song to Rocko’s Modern Life while drawing, too….that may have played a small part…! xD
Here’s some of the cuties I came up with:
Everyone I’ve shown these to so far seems to be a fan of the Catbot… 😐
After I finished the little boom box bot, the page was mostly full. I took a look around the room for some inspiration, when what should my eye land upon…? A book about our wonderful 7th President, Andrew Jackson! (He is a particular favourite of mine, outside of the simply awful stuff he was involved with.) I was inspired to make him in to a bot for my book. Not just any old bot, mind you!! — a POTUSBOT. (My own creation, thank-you-very-much!)
*ehem* (announcer voice) As you are all no doubt aware, in the future world of Amerobotica, we have gone through many a poor POTUSBOT. For some reason they just keep having the *worst* luck!! And poor #7 encountered his end…BY SQUID.
Work in progress shot.
Finished inking. I’d like to colour him, as well, so I’m still going to count this as a work in progress. ;3
What do you guys think? Any robot ideas you’d like to see me sketch?
