    Chow 189 :: Zach and the Doombots


    ROUND #189 :: Zach and the Doombots

    DESCRIPTION

    Zach and the Doombots

    More than any other 15 year old he knows, Zach hates his parents. Okay, he doesn't hate them, but he sure in hell doesn't understand them, or like them.

    Picture perfect mom is the famous superhero 'Starlight Fantastic', though when she was younger she was known as 'Star Girl'. Zach thinks both names are totally ludicrous, considering that his mom can issue hyper-charged beams of light from her chest. He's never heard of anything more ridiculous, but for some reason the stupidity of the general populous loves her.

    The only thing worse, is his Dad. Captain Awesome. His name just sounds like he's a bratty, elitist surfer kid. Who's father flies around in spandex and says things like "Not to fear, Captain Awesome is here!" ??

    Zach has had just about enough of the embarrassment. Sure, maybe no one knows that he's their son, but he sure knows, and he almost dies every time someone talks about them at school. The last straw was when his best friend drew a pin-up of his mom! Gross!

    He's got to put an end to it, and fast. Unfortunately (luckily?), he inherited none of his parent's powers. Instead he has to find another way to deal with them...

    Robotics Club wasn't for nothing. With an army of Doombots at his command, his parents will never be able to embarrass him again!

    Design Zach and the Doombots!

    So I think that I should do more concept exploration before painting if I have the time. This set is of wimpy/nerdy interpretations of the character...

    I doubt I will finish this weeks but I did these sketches today...Going for a 50's retro look but with contrastingly (is that a word?) sinister doombots.

    Not sure why, but I think of Zach as the somewhat rebellious kid with a dash of geek. I imagine his parents would expect him to like "western" robot stuff like Mechwarrior or Robot Jox, but alas, Zach as turned to cheesy 80s-90s giant robot anime instead!

    I think I'll do a bit more tinkering with the robots' designs. Since they're supposed to be called the "Doombots", there should be a whole crew of them. Hmm...

    Angst! Parricide! Drill teats and chainsaws!

    And that's what we have so far.

    Wonderful topic idea, by the way.

    Haha loving that one Adam. Not started yet but the Doombots will be made of a very heavy metal. Possibly featuring..

    Slipbot: Shouty, dreadlocked, masked lummox of a droid.
    The Iron Maiden: Spikey fem-bot.
    Motorheads: Multi-headed bot.
    Metallicass: He has an ass. It's made of metal.
    AC-D2: Small droid in a flat cap and school-tie

    @X3LT:
    You should think about removing oder changing that skull on his chest. It reminds me of the "punisher". If this is what you want, forget what I just said XD

    Nice topic, I hope I can give in something.

    Doombots will let you check your Myspace account AND tweet about your maniacal plans.
    Also, Roombas should have knives.

    Doombots are tiny and useless on their own, so a combiner mode is needed:

    My Idea is a boy with gloves who control the little Bots.
    Has somebody an idea for an dynamic pose for the legs. Please help!
    The hair is spiky like the word Zach.

    3XLT: Great pose. The left leg has weird proportions to it, and bends strangely. May also want to consider making him look younger?

    Captain Fatso: I assume he controls the doombot with his guitar? Great idea, as that's what parents hate most about teenagers Looking forward to seeing more of this one.

    CraftSquid: Great work so far. Only thing I would consider is making the doombot seem more 'combat-ready'. Just like of looks like a super computer chair.

    crossmirage: Would love to see more. Good idea with combining them, curious as to how you're gonna do it.

    Elixia: Keep working on it. I like that you seem to be doing bots of various sizes and shapes.

    Ironhead: Did you attach your image? I'm not seeing anything.
