I just hope I didn't go too Hellboyish on this one.
This is another rough sketch from The Great Undisclosed Project I am currently working on alongside my comrades Erik Van Buren and Dane Caro.
Without giving too much away, we are thinking about using this guy as a boss character. My line of thinking is that he'd be able to toss the main character into his fiery furnace belly, roasting him or her alive. The smoke plumes would then issue from his earstacks. Something like that.
I mean this is in a good way it looks like a robotic bear, which would, of course, be the deadliest catch. I like the industrial age approach to it. There is more character to the design when it's done like that, I think. I do it, too.
