Might Orbots G - Bo by Shin-Ian Might Orbots G - Bo by Shin-Ian
And there we go! The last of the Orbot redesigns is finished! Bo was surprisingly hard to get right, despite the structural similarity to Boo. I can't tell you how many poses I tried, till finally I managed to settle on this one. As a contrast to her sister, Bo is more aggressive, flamboyant and mischevous. I wanted to capture that a little more literally in her redesign, so while Boo is patterned a little after a rabbit, Bo is patterned after a cat. Static poses weren't working, so I had to find more of a movement shot. The shading got to be a little more dramatic than I originally intended, so I broke from the pattern of the other Orbot pieces and used a bit of a gradient as the background, to simulate the harsh light that would cause those shadows.

Unfortunately, Mighty Orbots isn't exactly the next one; I want to do the redesign of Rob, Ohno and the Beam Car next, but that should just be a single piece. Or who knows, I could just decide to do the big guy after all. :)

The cat ears fit her, I'll say that. She's catty after all. Nice redesign.

Thanks! I really struggled with her look, I think I have like six pages worth of head sketches alone. In the end I thought cat ears would be appropriate; glad to know I wasn't too far off base.

Thanks, it was tough. I'm only barely able to draw women passably, much less female robots.

Where is the design here? all i see is a anime face and an ugly body with boxes attached together for arms and legs. Make more details and stop being lazy.
