carrot boy

a robot who wants to be a real boy, but his screen is faulty and he's unable to express himself with ease. To overcome this and to show his emotions, he carries a satchel of sticky notes and whenever and whatever he feels he is able to quickly peel off a note, doodle the face he needs and stick it on. ଘ(੭ˊ꒳ˋ)੭✧

My final submission (•́⌄•́๑)૭✧


I really wanted to keep the cartoony concept and usually when I think of cartoons my thoughts turn towards 2d illustrations. So, I incorporated that element into the foreground. ✧٩(•́⌄•́๑)

The final render was done in Substance Painter and the additional flying sticky notes were done in Photoshop.

Overall, this was a really fun competition and I had quite an enjoyable journey when making this character (*≧∀≦*)

The texturing is being done in Substance painter and thus far the base layers are complete ( ᐛ )و

In the end I chose the red concept design for this, it adds a liveliness in the appearance of the character. Also, for this I am going to stick to a more stylised concept and the final model will most likely look really similar to this.

worry not, for this stern face is but a placeholder (๑>◡<๑)

I got the modelling done in Maya ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ

I started by making a initial blockout to get an idea of the general size, shape and position of the items. Then built upon it with more detailed pieces. However I had to leave the bag out as I didn't have enough time to model it.

Here are some close ups of some pieces of the model

The UV mapping is completed too °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

and onto texturing I gooo  (ノ><)ノ

Here are the silhouettes, it helped me to get an idea of the overall shape of the robot. σ(≧ε≦o)

Here are the concepts that were developed after choosing an initial silhouette.

Whilst doing the concepts, I was able to form somewhat of a story for this robot - a robot who wants to be a real boy, but because his screen doesn't work he is unable to express himself with ease. To overcome this and to show his emotions, he carries a satchel of sticky notes and whatever and whenever he feels he is able to quickly peel off a note, doodle the face he needs and glues it on. (•̀o•́)ง

Below is the finalised concept. I chose the shortest and roundest design as I feel that one is the cutest of them all. However, I still included some of the features seen in the other iterations. ⌒°(ᴖ◡ᴖ)°⌒


And these are the coloured concepts

I have begun my research for the 3D robot challenge. (ὸ⍸ό)✧

I gathered a variety of references, some technical too, to build an idea of what the robot could be.

I moved the images from Pureref onto Miroboard so I could easily organise and include annotations. (๑╹o╹)✎

Building on from this initial research I can now start making some concepts and silhouettes - I do have an idea in mind of what the robot will look like

I want to show its cuteness to the max
