Warm Up: Junk Yard Bot
I'm going to get back to posting some of my daily warm ups. I won't be posting them daily but a few a week. My warm ups used to be me drawing Catwoman, or Grifter, or whatever. That was fun but I did find that challenging or educational. Meaning that I was just doing my version of other peoples creations and that didn't push me to think to try new things. So I've shifted to doing more original ideas and concepts. I'm really just trying to capture ideas into quick sketches and not trying to do a pretty piece. If it comes out looking more thought out and final, then great but I'm not pushing for it. This is where experiments happen and learning is the goal. These sketches and doodles will fill the pages of my annual art books coming soon.
Junk Yard Bot. I love showing scale and that was the goal of this sketch. to show the size of the robot compared to the kid. That's it, it was a study in scale. Nothing deep, nothing poetic. Just a doodle to keep my head in the world of scale.
