I was originally inspired to draw something for this month's Character Design Challenge, which is Robots and Androids! Robots are definitely outside of my comfort zone, so I thought it would be a fun thing to push myself with. Well, I ended up with this cute little guy instead.... oops!
I started off with the bean shape for his main body and then added on the legs and arms. When I realized my bean looked a bit floaty, it was a no-brainer to turn it into an astronaut! My love of retro sci-fi themes shines through with the ridiculous bubble helmet and impractical body suit.
The colors I have in my head for this guy are a grey and red body suit and maybe and orange tabby fur. What do you think? What color combo would you pick? Let me know in the comments!
