Dang it, I've wanted to create a cyclops robot for quite awhile. So I did! The final design went through a number of variations, believe it or not — there's typically an extensive process of adding and subtracting elements of an illustration to find just the right balance (during which I drive myself bonkers). And more often than not, clean and bold wins out. Sometimes, simple just isn't as simple as it looks! But I'm pleased with the results and always enjoy the process.
Do you have the perfect name in mind this little dude? Email your ideas to me and I'll pick a favorite. Winners will receive a print of the character along with a few other cool items...congrats to Kelsi from Texas for naming Week One's illustration — Kittsy is her name!
Bonus time...below is a peek of an early sketch that led to the finished illustration:
