Clean-Up Assistant Critter

My drawing desk, yesterday evening. (This li'l fellow's wearing an ACME Electric Clean-Up Suit, 4000 Steampunk model range)


  1. Great design, great idea and stunningly executed.

  2. i like it Florian , hahaha ,it´s very funny.

    i have link you in my blog , i hope that like the link.

    see u!

  3. I agree with derek, just a few things I would change on the composition. I think the contact shadows should be darker because you can see the key light and see how dark it is on the sharpener and eraser. That's just a main thing I see, but otherwise, love your designs as usual.

  4. Florian... Fantastic! ahahaah.. I want this Assistant Critter!

  5. Florian, this character is very well done. Love the whole idea of having a little fellow that helps you cleaning the work space. Is so cool he´s using an ACME Electric Clean-Up Suit, 4000 Steampunk model range and not a common vacuum cleaner!

    Hugs from Uruguay!

  6. This is by far the most insane character you've done! That's the most complicated suit I've seen and that duck is still smiling!

    Genius stuff, Florian.
