Continuing on with my research, i found the Robots character design book in the library. Because i was given the robot as one of my objects i felt this would be very helpful.
Unfortunately there was no story boarding in this, however the character designs are amazing and the way they came up with each individual robot is even more amazing, every piece of the robots are taken from everyday objects. Michael Knapp was one of the concept artists for this film and his sketch style is something i would love to be able to achieve...
The stages that the designs go through are what i was really interested in..
Practicing with the graphics tablet is something i need to start doing a lot more of.
