Atomic Robo by Zubby Atomic Robo by Zubby
If you've never had the chance to read an issue of Brian Clevinger and Scott Wegener's Atomic Robo series, you should really go and do that. It's a perfect blend of action and fun snappy dialogue.

Robo's design is difficultly simple in nature. There's not much to it but it's quite specific so you have to get the proportions just right (especially in the face) otherwise it'll look like an Atomic Robo stunt-double.

I wanted to draw a full figure instead of a head sketch and decided a bit of forced perspective and a staircase would be fun too. Combine that with the difficulty of doing robotic parts in perspective and the whole thing took just over an hour of noodling away to do, stopping only for e-mail answers and a snack.

ooo the the whole proportion thing is so true. I think its the most re-occuring problem we have while working on the animated short.

You forgot to mention the awesome artist, Scott Wegener. He's an actual friend of mine. Sadly he just moved to Staten Island from NH.
