Here it is, everyone, robot of the day number eight: Robo from Chrono Trigger!
This marks the first ROTD that was inked digitally. It took longer than I thought it would (hence the delay) but I’m very happy with the results. What I did was draw the image with good old paper and pencil, then I scanned the drawing and used Photoshop to “ink” on a separate layer. It’s like using a light box to trace, but extra fancy. Here is the pencil drawing before I started inking it:
Chrono Trigger was my favorite video game as a kid, and it’s still one of my top favorite games of all time. Robo was a great character, and a more than worthy entry into my ROTD series.
