I created this robot creature concept art as part of my personal work.
First, I was thinking about how a character balances (their weight) and how I could stretch this idea. Once I set the two balancing leg points, I freely sketched the rest of the body without picking up the pencil much at all. Any mistake became the areas where the robot was cracked.
I tried taking the idea of a sewing machine and rotating it around in different ways to be the body of the robot. Then, I chose a limited retro color palette and rendered them. I liked the minimalistic look and thought that the small details such as the cracks were not necessary. And finally, I added a bandage to one as it portrayed a narrative.
Inspired by retro sewing machines as pictured below.
