Everybody gets a face-full of Chunky Ben today on today’s Titanzer, so it’s time to talk about him. As opposed to everyone else in the story, Ben only took a quick sketch to figure out his design. It was a lucky break, considering every other character took a lot longer. (Wait till we get to Johnny - whooboy).  

The design came easy, but figuring out his personality definitely did not. As the main villain, he needed to be distinct in a way that made him interesting but not tediously annoying. In the first draft he was a silent, brooding warrior. But that made him horribly boring as the story went on, the only one being a grump in the corner. Instead I made him a cranky buttwipe with no idea how to swear right. 

The idea of making him a hodgepodge of cybernetic parts goes even further back than that. I like the idea of cyborg chop shops existing in the future, a culture of stealing parts to install them in back alley garages. And if you’re already putting stolen machinery in your body, why not install something to boost your ego, like a bunch of AI programs? I know I’d probably do it. It’d make asking for a raise a whole lot easier.

Hello. I have been programmed to show you to a sneak preview of Titanzer (coming in 2014). As a human, you probably have questions. Who is the shadowy man approaching me? Why am I blinking in the panel above? The answer is a resounding, polite YES. If you seek additional answers as Titanzer approaches, simply keep following this tumblr as I cannot prevent myself from posting about it, even if I so desired.  

Until then, have a pleasant day.

Robot head silhouette tests. I like to play with the shadow and outline of the head first before I settle on a design. Is there a faster way? Probably! Will I try to figure that out? Maybe!

Took my Valkyrie and with a bit of magic, snazzed it all the way up past the clouds into space.

Beartato’s so fun I made up a robot for him to parallel park in. Nedroid is the hot dog’s bun, yes it is. Go read it up and feed your eyeballs.
