IF: Contained (Not your average Dot robot)

[12 Jan 2009 | By | 0 Comment(s) | 2,935 views ]

So sorry for being MIA this weekend. I apparently caught a little bug, but I’m better now. So for Illustration Friday this week, I give you not your average Dot robot (yes, a tad sexier and slinkier), contained, as comic art typically is, in a box.

contained

I love the sketch, but I’ve recolored her 3 times trying to get the right feel –she seems a little too sterile. Still may try another idea.

EDIT:
Here’s a totally different coloring job. Whatcha like better?
Robot Girl 2.0

    this is SWEET! I need to draw more robots, but why should I waste my time when obviously YOU are the Queen of Robots!

  • Vanessa Brantley Newton [] :

    Oh my!!! she is trouble waiting to happen!!! This is fabulous! I love this. Very colorful and sexy. Sorry that you had a bug. I know how you feel. I had it too. Hope that you are feeling a whole lot better now.

  • Bella Sinclair [] :

    Woooo, sexy! I have a feeling there will be a lot of rush deliveries on her.

    I like the warmth and texture of the bottom version. On the other hand, robots are generally sterile, aren’t they? Why take it out.

    Glad you’re feeling a little better now.

  • Honor Bowden [] :

    ooh… I love the second one and adore those boots!

  • Amy C [] :

    she is awesome – one sexy chick.
    I LOVE the second one the colors and lines are incredible –
    The Orangey red rocks
    Hope you are feeling better.

  • CraftyHope [] :

    Oh, I love #2 – it’s more. . .um. . . oh I don’t know, character. #1 is everything a sexy girl robot should be, but #2 – come on – she’s got gusto!!

  • merlyna [] :

    great and surprising take on the theme!
    i love the color of #2…
    but also the strong robot expression of #2…. oh, such a dilemma :)

  • ValGalArt [] :

    I love em both but I love the bottom one the mostest :P I am drawn to all the textures and colours and earthy vibe for the very sexy chickadee!

  • yoon see [] :

    I love your new style here.
    This lovely sketch indeed comes with clever vibrant splashes.
    It’s just too hard to resist to ponder another minute before leaving your blog.
    Just too good to comprehend:)

  • yoon see [] :

    I hope will be totally well soon!

  • Shano [] :

    Well, that was a clever idea for Contained! If I had to pick a favorite, I would say the bottom one because of the colors :)

  • Nicky Linzey [] :

    Hope you’re feeling better now. I love the second one best – the colours and textures and generally the more free sketchy feel. It’s great.
