Robot coloring page
I was asked to draw a robot for a 6 year old, and this humanoid robot pencil sketch was the first to come up. Started drawing the head, torso and limbs, and then added the floor and surrounding cityscape. Then went back to the robot and thicken its outlines to make it pop up towards the viewer. Whole thing might have taken about 15 minutes and done freehand. Point of the exercise was to just loosen up and practice my pencil strokes with my Caran D'Ache Museum Fixpencil 4 mm leadholder loaded with 3B Technalo watersoluble graphite lead. The composition was kind of spontaneous, probably inspired by a Clone Wars Animated elevator sequence.
