Ahh!! character work my peers, I need to re-think through my character. the following applies to my character:
3. easily distracted
his character should aesthetically be:
2. flexible face
here are some robots i found about the ol' net that resemble cute
All of them have anthropomorphic qualities, another similarity is the rounded body parts. in recent years the design of robots have changed to a smoother, more polished aesthetic. Wall-E is a good example of our new ideas of robotics all of course being Wall-E, being a relic.
although its a tangent, another point i'd like to raise is the similarities between johnny 5 and Wall-E
Both of these characters are considered cute, but what differences are there? neither have legs and instead use tracks, both have arms with three digits, neither of them have faces aside from giants eyes. Of course there differences are within there body structure and size. Wall-E is small and wide framed to resemble puppy fat, he's also extremely small,causing him to always look up with his droopy eyes. Johnny 5 is different in that his frame and structure is thin and lanky, causing him to be appear fragile, but is equal to an adult in height making him far less appealing than his modern counterpart.
in order for me to develop a character looking at the more anthropomorphic design, tiny and wide, with large eyes and a tiny body in comparison to its large head..........very similar to my old design in fact. still must roll with the times
