Robot On Space Board


For this design I was asked to put the robot kid on a futuristic skateboard/surfboard. I found the most challenging thing about this design was remembering which brushes I used to create the textures. I constantly make my own brushes and because we are expected to be versitile in many art techniques, I sometimes forget how I created a design.
Another challenge was matching the color with the original design. Because AG decided to use a different paper stock it made the ink react differently to the paper. A constant battle we have...trying to create the cleanest colors possible.

Wow Jason, the characters are great and the coloring too. Does it takes lots of time to do it?

Gabriele, thanks for the compliment.
As for your question on the how long it takes...The Original Robot Design took me about 28 hours to actually create the design (not including research time, making brushes and textures.)

Very nice robot, Jason! It's hard to believe that it was all just done in Photoshop. Superb!
