I had been wanting to design a character that combined my love of drawing and my obsession with toy robots. The simplicity of a bold silhouette with a single eye kept creeping into my sketchbook, and thus, SketchBot was born!
The seed for this character was planted about 9 years ago. I had been playing around with this concept during my tenure at Blue Sky Studios and did a little animation to test out their robust radiosity renderer. Just goes to show that good ideas never die out, they just take some time to ferment!
