05 and the plant by zazB 05 and the plant by zazB
I have drawn this character a few time in my sketchbook and in a couple of speedpaintings but it occured to me that I never uploaded any of it. I really need to practice my brushpen skills, so I made this.

I like the illustration but I'm not satisfied with the suit design, because it doesn't reflect what I wanted the character to be.
05 is supposed to be eternal and indestructible, while in this design, there are too many small pieces and exposed articulations. I'll try again sometime :)

Same as before, colerase, brushpen and photoshop.

Nice! Sorta reminds me of the Tech Priests of Mars, though a lot more cuddly

i really like the bulky mechanical design coupled with the idea of a hood/shroud on the back which lends a feeling of perhaps piety or spiritual presence, further accented by the cherishing the plant. the weight of the high-tech juxtaposed against the idea of spirit or anima is great.

I also really, really like teh color choices

Thank you! :)
I think the idea I had behind the cloak was to give the character something to hide it's features behind. Also to make people feel like there is someone under the mechanical suit, that it's not just a robot.

Love this, love all your art actually. It reminds me a little of the robot aliens in the fifth element, a robot that looks like it was made very long ago. It's a really nice mix XD

No 05 for a while, I'm too busy with other projects at the moment. But this is not the end of him/she/it :)

A wonderful and unique design!
It's great how you managed to create
the impression of a thinking and feeling
character without a face capable of showing
emotions, I really like those round and smooth
shapes.

zazB Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
Thanks!
I like the round shapes too, I think it makes the design look stronger, more resistant but not agressive.

I really like this robot design; it's very cute! The plant makes it very sweet, working against the 'SCIENCE VS. NATURE' thing that is stupidly popular.
Reply

I see much of nature vs. corporations or civilisation. It's popular indeed, but relevent I think. It's often heavy handed or unoriginal though. (I'm looking at you Avatar :P)

You're welcome!

It honestly bothers me when science and technology are automatically equated with corporations; it just makes a 'Science is bad' moral and I HATE that :T it just ruins the whole story for me.
