Jellybots. by nicholaskole Jellybots. by nicholaskole
So: I have this idea...
:) I really should be working on other things, but I just got a new Cintiq for use at home, and this idea I've been sitting on for months (maybe even years?) wanted doodling.

It's few sketches, so I can put this out there and come back later...maybe even do a short comic or something.

It's kind of a..Herge/Tintin-meets-Ipods-if-robots-were-made-of-jelly thing. You know the type.


As always, more info and unrelated doodles on my blog! [link]

This looks like something really cool, on a comic or a TV show, you should develop a story around these characters

Saw this on behance as well. Amazing job on the colors, and how cleanly you nailed every detail of this piece. Very cool stuff!

These are a brilliant concept. Very nice indeed. You should take it further. Maybe develop a pitch for a cartoon or toy range.

ooohohoho got it, so the guy is handling the jelly-thing-bot.
That's a very fresh drawing and colors, you have to be proud of yourself with this one (even if it was a simple concept).

The colors are really nice also. c:
Gouacheman Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Love the closeup, you really get the concept across well. I would love to see that animated in Maya to get the textures correct.

I love the colors!! this is great!!! very creative =) nice work!
mlauritano Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
Ha, sounds to me like an excuse for you to make loads of digital paintings with awesomely rendered glowing jelly, but the general concept sounds pretty now-ish and has a marketable non-gender specific combo of cuteness and weirdness, like a more colorful Tron in jelly for a potentially broader age range audience. And as far as I'm concerned, anything inspired by Tintin has something very right with it.
nicholaskole Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Well...heheh...yeah. You've got me. I want to draw jelly and design wobbly suits. That, and I wanted to use bubble fonts :)
And as for the Tron thing...yeah: once I saw the designs for the new film I knew I'd have to commit myself to paper quickly, or I'd miss the boat completely! Really, in a way, I'm almost just thinking that I'd like to make toys :p
We'll see if it goes anywhere...I don't really have a story...just a mood and a strong desire to draw jelly.
mlauritano Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
Well, you do jelly quite well! So, indulge, I say!
nicholaskole Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist we do anything else?
Batwynn Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Student Digital Artist
hee hee This is cool. :3 the colors are perfect.

BlueLobster1979 Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010
Um... that's BRILLIANT!!! I love the organic fluidity of the gel over the traditional hard robot aesthetic of wires and gears any day!
I kinda like that concept :D

and the word ,jellybots is just too nice not to use ^________^
BlueBerserker Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I absolutely love this idea.

ranroona Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
nice work ... i love the colors :D
smokewithoutmirrors Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Professional General Artist
These look fascinating. :D My only concern would be how on earth one breathes in one of these things. Still, if you did make a comic out of it, I'd read it in a heartbeat.

Also - congrats on the Cintiq! I've had mine for years and am absolutely in love with it - even if it's giving me some trouble now (I don't think my graphics card gets along with it very well at the moment) - and it makes digital art so much easier.
neosuicune Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
Awesomesauce! I wants one in purple! This would be most the most awesome comic or movie concept!
samuraiturnip Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2010
I love this concept! If robots were made out of jelly, they could be produced everywhere, even when all Earth's metal has been used to make toaster ovens. Also, the color schemes match my favorit flavors of gummy worms.
I think I want one for Christmas.

I pray that this becomes a comic series :D The character design's great and the concept's really interesting, bursting with the potential to be a full fledged comic series!
