Sheep herding

Few sketches for a new piece i'm working on, hopefully it'll turn out to show a few "sad" robots in somewhat familiar but occasionally forgotten roles.

What i've come up for now is a the below sketch for an "ordinary" sheep herding robot (hey thats still an actual job in some countries) :).
This is all heavily influenced by gregory crewdsons photographs showing "ordinary people" in weird noir-esque scenes.

The rest of the scenes im thinking about at the moment is; 1) butcher bot. 2) mail office bot. 3) Street food maker bot. 4) taxi bot. 5) shoe cleaner bot.
I realize there's a jump from sheep herding to taxi's so im not quite sure if i should keep it all together...hmm

Guerilla Art Test

In 2010 i got invited down to Guerilla games (makers of the killzone franchise) for an on-site interview.
I had 2 amazing days in Amsterdam, everyone was extremely kind but alas long story short it didn't quite pan out at it should have.

Recently i found my Art test i did for them, back in late 2009 (submitted before christmas i think).
I can't quite remember the exact brief, but it was to create a more conservative helghastian civilian car (nuttin' like the banged-up ones you see throughout the games).


Bunch of semi-old pistol sketches (better than not posting anything at all right? - i will soon though)

More old stuff...

Old, borrowed, cancelled stuff :)

These were all for an entry i made for the "samsung" competition last year, my dream gadget...just hoping wacom is already moving on this :P

Perusing my old stuff, i came across a bunch of studies i did late 2009 - all built meticulously in sketchup - i think i must've gone insane and hidden this thing deep in the darkest parts of my mind :S

I can't really recall what the direct inspiration for the look of it was, but it sure does carry on a kind of deadspace-ish feel to it...
