Mighty Orbots G - Tor by Shin-Ian Mighty Orbots G - Tor by Shin-Ian
First of the Orbot redesigns in full color. This is also my first attempt at using any kind of reflective glare coloration for the metal, so bear with me. Learned a lot from doing this piece, and it'll probably change how I clean up the line art for the subsequent machines.

I tried to maintain Tor's original color scheme as best I could, with some minor adjustments here and there. I am a little concerned with how they will all look as Mighty Orbots, with the varying colors and all, so there may have to be some adjustment once I get their combined form drawn and colored. The creative process at work, I guess.

Hahahaha that's probably true. What you don't see in Tor's picture here is how he scales in comparison to the other Orbots; he's easily 50% taller than Bo and Boo, and 25% taller than Bort and Crunch.

lol I confess, it's nothing specific. "Great" or "Grand", etc. It's mostly a homage to traditional super robot 'sequels', like how Mazinger Z is followed by Great Mazinger, and Getter Robo is followed by Getter Robo G.

The letter G is the mightiest letter in super robot lexicon, so there's that too.

I saw maybe one full episode of Mighty Orbots when I was four years old, and I couldn't figure out what it was called until maybe two years ago, and I've fallen in love with the show. HOORAY FOR RIDICULOUS CAMERA ANGLE-CHANGES!

I know, right? The director had some really interesting ideas, that's for sure. If you don't have the sound running, it's very much an 80s era anime, with the color palettes, crazy-detailed shading and rainbow color effects.

It's a bad rearrangement of 'robots'; basically, robots with human-level AI, very much like the mecha from the Brava saga, or the Transformers.
