We were asked to take an image of a train and copy a random selection of it to create something that looked like a robot. In my case I decided to go with the train you can see above, I mainly choose this train because of the design of the hands resembled almost what we were doing, making an image out of part of another.
After sectioning the train into the smaller images and putting them together, they began to form a figure, the figure reminded Sonic, I think it was due to the top of the figure that looked like the spikes that are on sonics head, This also inspired later parts of my design, such as the colours. After we created the base of the robot out of the image, we were then told that we needed to start colouring it. Starting with the shadows using black.
We could then go remove the background image and use the black drawing to start to add colour till the robot began to look like and actual robot. In the final design, I started to create some panels on the robot’s body and gave it glowing red eyes. I also finished off the legs so it looked as if it had feet as the original drawing made it look as if the robot only had legs without any feet to round it off.
