Sketchbot Prototype Sketches - Batch 2

Here's another set of Sketchbot prototype sketches. I like to put the character through as many poses and actions as possible to see how well the volumes hold up.

Sketchbot Prototype Sketches

Getting the Sketchbot prototype started ASAP has been on my mind lately. Whenever I have a free moment, I'll doodle a quick sketch and start fleshing out how to turn the graphic 2d version of Sketchbot into a fully realized 3d volume. Some of these drawings started before I began modeling the 3d version in Maya, while others are further studies to see how the different parts might connect and respond to "real-world" poses. I'll also be undertaking a clay maquette in the near future and these drawings will definitely come in handy for that.

Handcraft Strikes Back

A quick shout-out to Smashing Magazine for including my Sketchbot buttons in today's post compiling varied forms of buttons, badges, pins and clips. Check out all the cool designs here.
