Think Outside The Square by Simanion Think Outside The Square by Simanion
I drew this little robot on the back of a post card a while ago and thought he looked so cool that i had to do something with him. I cut him out and sat him on my desk. As I pursued various other projects, he watched over...waiting for his time to shine lol...this was about 3 months ago.

This was finished in a bit of a rush (I was using it for an interview I had the next day to get into uni). I started without a concept, I just wanted the robot to be accompanied by more things that had been cut out. Once the squares came and I started playing around with their placement, the idea of what it would all say simply cultivated itself. It was about being imaginative and original - a tornado of ideas and imagination coming out of his head, in contrast to the plain, orderly squares he resided in or was expected to adhere to (as a robot of course).

Hope you like it :)

Think Outside The Square by *Simanion... the sheer magnitude of the piece, not to mention its splendour and ornateness in detail... speaks for itself, as the title clearly iterates. ( Suggested by xqz-moi and Featured by snowmask )

In thumbnail, I found this picture very interesting, but wait: the minute I enlarged this pic, I saw "IT", the single detail, that made everything clear, like, WHY i found this particular pic so mind-puzzling and so on.... I think that u know, what i mean... ;)

Christ Almighty, this is magnificent. What media did you use to create such fine details and varying line thicknesses?

Simanion Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Thanks! Well..all the drawn detail is from the same pen (just a standard Artline felt-tip pen). Then there were a few pieces I pasted on top, like the darker circles, the squares at the bottom and the robot itself :D

This is great, the use of the white space adds impact to your central design which is excellent. The best ideas come from roughs and doodles. Nice work!

Great design. I love the balance between the rigid base and the wild ideas... with that wonderful litle character holding them together.
Brilliant.

Don't knock it. Lose some form of balance and the world of Doodle starts to sneak upon you. :)

Excellent details! I'd never guess it was rushed.
I like the balance between geometric and organic shapes.

Very cute robot character!
