MY TOTALLY PROFESSIONAL BLOG
I don’t usually like showing off ‘works in progress’ because it sort of ruins the surprise, you know? But who knows when I’ll get to finish this one.Having said that, I managed to crank out this much in an hour or two last night so it might be sooner than I think!

However could Captain Callisto manage without the inventive and expensive tools provided by her associate over in R&D?(Somebody else would probably do it.)

I was watching the Judge Dredd film last night* and was reminded that I need to draw Callisto more, need to get her consistent.And also! Need to test out her riot gear!

Colour schemes! My one weakness!*Shambolix is particularly difficult due to the fact that he’s pieced together from old parts so you might expect a lot of mismatching colours but this can make the character less coherent and (as I’ve certainly learned) fewer colours tend to make for a stronger scheme. I tried changing what colours were where and even went back to his first design and tried those colours but it was never really sitting right.
For my second attempt I tried making everything a standard “junk” grey/blue and then highlighting a few parts here and there. It didn’t seem too bad but standing him next to his peers revealed a lot of yellows and reds in my other robot designs.Lastly I went for a turquoise which was pulled from a very old robot dog character who has since been taken out back, added a bit of orange into the mix for variety and some dark blue for contrast. It’s growing on me! What do you think?

More Fandango robots, this time I felt that Shambolix needed a major redesign!At his inception I deliberately wanted each of his parts to be sourced from another robot, so much so that one or two robots were actually created retroactively from this design!Later I felt that wasn’t so important, though a few recognisable pieces would be nice. By this time I was a bit better at drawing and was able to make the design a little sleeker and a little more focussed but his awkward proportions made him less distinguishable in places.Now I felt as though the humanoid “junk golem” model was a bit obvious and kind of lame so I set about on a new design. I wanted him to be more beastly since a lot of my zone bosses so far are bipedal and roughly human sized and one thing I felt the character really lacked was an identity so I soon settled on the junkyard dog (har har) angle.I tried to balance complexity, so that the character was clearly made up of a lot of scrap parts and simplicity so that he would be relatively easy to animate. Time will tell on that one!

I’ve spent a lot of time drawing Fandango robots so it was about time I expanded Callisto’s side of the story.Here are some Cosmopol enforcers!My muscular Captain Falcon may have directly inspired one of them…

an' i was just watchin' Charlie Charlie intro there as you reblogged that an' all. i see that and raise ya "live-action/CG hybird Family Ness adaption attempting to cash in on Pacific Rim"

If I could only get that pacific Rim poster maker to work I could have fashioned a crude Eyewit Ness while confirming Ewan McGregor as McTout.

Did you see the trailer though? It turns out that Pat sings with the voice of a thousand boy bands.
In fact it pretty much looks like the exact same storyline The Vicar of Dibley used ten years ago, but with Robo-Pats.

First poster for Postman Pat 

It’s like every bad idea that could possibly go into a movie adaptation of a children’s show distilled into a single poster, a perfect step by step guide.
Stacey pointed out that the kid next to Jess appears to be aping DDR Mario Mix just a tad.

god almighty
ah well, it’ll be worth it for the avengers-style postman pat/fireman sam/bob the builder crossover

OooooohohohohoSo I’m guessing it’s Stephen Mangan as Pat, Rupert Grint as B-Boy Baby Pat, Jim Broadbent as POST-DELIVERING-AUTOMATON (the best thing about this poster) Ronan Keating as Soul Patch Sid which leaves David Tennant as….Jess? Mrs. Pat?No, you know what? They’ll have made the post van sentient and lacking in self esteem like Lee Evans in The Magic Roundabout.How did we get to this point when they haven’t even ruined Charlie Chalk yet?
