Promised this earlier- a bit of an update on 'lil toaster dude'. Here are some of the pics of the development and creation of him. I made a digital version on illustrator/photoshop and then another version (which is what I've chosen) and added a canvas texture to him which you cant notice so much and then coloured over him by hand afterwards and cut out etc. The first photo is more of a mock up of the initial hand made version before any digital ones.
So... it turns out the photo uploader has stopped working at just 2 pics so I'll have to post the final texture version tomorrow. Got some more pics from the test animation I created though. Ooh the suspense!
