Twenty-Six Spins #17: T is for Mecha


Another day, another spin. I wanted to make a 3D robotic arm for Mecha, but it quickly dawned on me that this would take a while, probably longer than I had available this evening, so I backtracked to Illustrator. Much fun was had trying to create a kooky, vintage mister roboT, apparently indulging in a spot of robo-yoga:

Affirmative! This friendly character will be taking care of all our chores by the year 2000, you wait and see.

Then, it was just a case of adding colour and texture. I did tone it down somewhat for the final, though. I enjoyed this one! It’s something I’d probably never have considered had I not gone in for this challenge. I’m sure there’s a lesson there somewhere.

      Thanks, I’m chuffed there are multiple favourites! 🙂 This will be up there for me, too – good fun, and something I might return to when this series is over.

    I must place an order for the T-Bot right away, Jacob…I especially like his briefs. (-; Happy memories of of the wind-up toys we had, as children. B

      Ha, thanks Bill. Who didn’t love wind-up bots? They were the future!
