Hi Y'all! I was digging through some old boxes the other day, and I came across some castings of a maquette that I made for Doug Chiang when he was developing his Robota book (and pitching it as potential movie project.) While we were working on the Star Wars prequels, I had already made a maquette of the Kantuur Set robot, which is one of the main characters for that same project. This robot was intended to be a henchman of Kantuur, and Doug wanted him to give the impression of a sumo wrestler. A big, imposing and menacing brute. The loincloth is one of my favorite parts. I think it came out really well - it was inspired by a segmented watch band. Here's the pen art that I was given as inspiration.
