FB: Future Beavers From The Past

I felt like posting something: This is just a rough concept sketch in between... I really like the shape of the large spaceship in the background.

I did the basic roughs on paper - I then sketched digitally the rest of the rough process in Photoshop.

Future Beavers are quite wee creatures, aren't they? En passant, they're part of the StarDucks character ensemble...

BTW, this (below) paper walker, a sort of walking sculpture by Hitoshi Yamada, inspired the landing gear of the mothership in the background of the sketch:

I'm a big fan of Theo Jansen's walking sculptures. In case you wonder about Jansen's kinetic pieces, check out this link.
