Robot Artist of the week – Tim Von Rueden!

Tim Von Rueden is the lead director for the Concept Cookie branch of the education network CG Cookie, run out of Chicago. Concept Cookie was created to provide concept artists with tutorials, resources, references, feedback, and insight to help them grow as an artist.

Character: Meet our little robotic buddy, Pothead.

This robot is disheveled, unpractical, and almost nonfunctional and his main purpose is to act as a heater. He drags his battery behind him and to turn him on, he flips the switch on his chest. When heating his flame eyes get larger and the “surface hot” light turns on.
