"Rogue Trooper" Project for #MarchofRobots2018 (DRWG17-20)
I'd "deviated" from my robot-sketchery (but tagged #MarchofRobots anyways, as I am shameless :p) to delve into a project I had hoped to restart, from a custom 1/6 from before 2014 (Image below): "ROGUE TROOPER" from 2000 A.D.!
For the purposes of this sketch challenge, and as well to "spice" things up since my last attempt, was to add a 4th aspect to the "robot" items - which previously included "HELM" (the helmet"), "GUNNAR" (the rifle) and "BAGMAN" (the backpack"), and now included a robot "arm"!
The (original) concept for these builds, are that each robot item possesses their own robot-consciousness, and are in conversations with and advise the Trooper (whom I am going to call "Blue" here, because "Mr Obvious") during missions - which I'd always liked about the character!
It was fun while it lasted - and here's hoping they'd become a "toy-reality" soon, instead of being another figment of my imagination living amongst the dream-clouds LOL
All description of the drawing in the image captions, thanks! And you can view them all on Instagram under the hashtag: "#toysreviltrooper" :)
Reposting this old custom I never completed (done even earlier than when I’d posted on my 1/6 hobby blog at http://toysrevil16.blogspot.com in 2014) and regretted utilizing an #ActionMan body, instead of a chunkier BBI G3 (which would make for a nice cyborg-styled custom IMHO) ... but maybe thinking of something more “lean” now ... am thinking of a stealthier soldier... or make a “squad” of #RogueTroopers hahaha thru the years I’ve embraced myself of being more of a “team builder” than a sole operator, or at the very least TWO operators! Just gotta go dig up all my 1/6 gears stashed away in the hole that which is my former bedroom hahahaha #toylife #henglifesg #myhobby #TOYSREVILTrooper
MARCH OF ROBOTS 2018:
I’ve been lapsing on a few days’ worth of #marchofrobots but I couldn’t help myself (re)watching #expendables3, and a strong desire to redo my interpretation of #2000AD’s #RogueTrooper but somehow never completed... at least the lone 1/6th figure I did years back, and probably will bail on and start a brand new custom... just need to stop doodling and get down to actually DOING THE CUSTOM ... #hengdraw #TOYSREVILTrooper
#marchofrobots2018 DRWG17 - #RogueTrooper’s “HELM” is a dead soldier downloaded into his helmet, and helps “Blue” with surveillance, intel and strategy. Yes I know I’m stretching the “robots”-theme here, but I’d want to dedicate some time in redesigning and hopefully kitbashing a 1/6 Trooper, and these are his “buddies” I need to work on! There’s also “Gunnar” and “Bagman”, and I’m thinking of a 4th robot now - more to fit my “4 x doodles per series” than anything else hahaha #toysrevilart #hengdraw #toysrevilmarch2018 #marchofrobots #TOYSREVILTrooper
#marchofrobots2018 DRWG18 - #Gunnar” for my #toysreviltrooper project. I’d wanted the sunconsciousness of a former sniper embedded as a robot in Blue’s primary ... unfortunately Gunnar has a volatile cocktail of PTSD and bipolar tendacies in his decision making abilities... it’s no longer just about pulling the trigger. #hengdraw #toysrevilart #toysrevilmarch2018 #marchofrobots ... of course I’d forgotten to record via the time lapse function, and recorded it real-time...
#marchofrobots2018 DRWG19 - “Baggman” for my #toysreviltrooper project, with this being #RogueTrooper’s backpack unit - for storage and ammo, among other life support surprises! I decided to consciously give a “face” to this unit :p ... #toysrevilart #hengdraw #marchofrobots I know it looks more “design development” than robot doodle, but I’m enjoying myself, so there LOL
#marchofrobots2018 DRWG20 - I’d wanted to give the #RogueTrooper a 4th “robot” aspect & decided on a detachable robot arm, with independent surveillance and stealth functions. I’ve more of a story in my head, but needless to say, this is my homage to flying rocket-fists from anime, and The Addam Family’s “Hand”! #hengdraw #toysrevilart #marchofrobots #toysreviltrooper
I think I’ve the “4th robot” figured out for my #RogueTrooper possible 1/6 custom/kitbash (see previous images & caption), but I’m still unsure, as it is not an inanimate object (helmet, gun, backpack) but instead is an autonomous “robot arm”! Hey, not only Cable can have a single metal arm, okay? Will sleep on it ... Starting a new hashtag for this self-project: #TOYSREVILTrooper :)
