 Third assignment for Ryan Wood's class. We were to create a vintage beverage ad using a robot as the marketing attraction. I wanted to do the something that tackled the equivalent of robotic gastrointestinal problems.

I did a lot of concept work to get to this point; so I'll post them here. Early on, I knew what type of situation I wanted to depict; showing a robot feeling those unwanted robo pains at the most inopportune time.

Next was coming up with the look of the robot while keeping in mind that it had to have a practical function. I started doodling random objects on paper, then some digital sketches

I first did the one on the left, and my wife mentioned that it looked like a shop vac, so I made one that was basically a shop vac with arms, wheels and a face.

Ryan actually liked the original sketch better, mentioning that a simplified look would be more effective. So I went back to the drawing board and sketched up some random ideas

Deciding on the bottom left, I finished it up and turned it in. Ryan suggested some changes and I've tried my best to implement them, which is the image posted at the top. The End
