I’ve been playing (and replaying) this great iPad gamed called Machinarium since I bought it Thanksgiving weekend. It’s a beautiful and delightfully cute puzzle game with adorable robots and gorgeous art. I decided to design my own robot and start illustrating him in the same style as the game. I started out on paper and am now working on shading and details in Photoshop (ideally I would use a digital painting program like Corel Painter but I can’t afford that and honestly don’t deserve it… yet).
Tonight I got the basic outline, base color, and some shadows. I took my color palette straight from a screenshot of the game.
Hopefully I can finish this little guy soon. I call him Dr. Robot because the way his chest is designed looks like the lab coat of a doctor.
