Hello, I'm a bit late to the party with this one but I going to give it a shot.
My character is going to be a robot pilot. What I want to achieve for the robot is something that looks like a cross between the Iron Giant and Rodney Copperbottom set in the world of Machinarium. So he's going to look gangly and grungy.
The vehicle is going to be a biplane. The plane is also going to be very grungy. I've started modelling the plane and I'm basing it loosely on a Fiat CR.42 Falco.
Progress so far
I'm going to do some sketches for the robot and try to think of a name for him and I'll update when I have something.
