I first found out about the super-talented Mr. Jake Parker's INKtober through the Twitters after he finished his 2009 inaugural ink celebration & after the print edition of his book was sold out. I was bummed not to be able to pick one up but soon thereafter he released the digital edition, which was one of the first titles to move onto my iPad. I've pulled reference from it more than once when working on my own bots. In truth, I may be guilty of being too inspired by some of his designs here & there but I'm finding my own robot groove these days. Luckily for all of us, he's started INKtober again and some other folks are playing along. I'm not finding time for an ink drawing every day due to a character design & a storyboarding class but I did manage a couple quick INKbot sketches over the last week. All are ink-only, no pencil futzing about - something my character design teacher is challenging me to get more comfortable with.
This one flies.
This one doesn't.
Watch out for the claw.
This is the cute one.
This guy's probably a protocol droid or something boring like that.
I'll try to get a couple more INKtober posts up before the month is out. In the meantime, make sure to keep an eye on Mr. Jake Parker's Twitter stream for all of his goodness.
