A Time Of Robots

It's important to be open to new things. In my job I am lucky enough to "have to learn new programs". It's always humbling and sometimes very hard and frustrating. These were done with Sketch Up and Vue 5 in two days( over 150 images in all). Two excellent programs that are incredibly easy for the technologically challenged such as myself. As I started doing them a story started to happen with the images, at least for me. I didn't finish the robot model till half way through so try to imagine all the torso's as whole robots. The computer is a tool and not the crutch, so I view these as "sketches". If I were to continue with any of these I would use them to draw from and not as a final render. Honestly it made me feel like a kid doing these, you know press a button or two and whammo a photo reality!!! Wow computers can be fun!

Just some sketches from the sketchbook. Just letting the pen go some times can yield some good things. The last one on the page turned into a little study that I liked and later into a few good pieces. Try to listen to your instincts, it's hard at first, but it gets easier the more you do it. When your creating it's imperative.
