These were som preliminary designs for the head - I'm still liking some of the things I've got going on here - even with the rough body sketch.
I'm pretty happy with how this is turning out. I didn't really sketch this out beforehand and so it's not as well designed as I'd like it to be. I really want this to feel like it was built by the best engineers of Oz for the tinman. I feel like the Oz theme should push the design to a sleeker, more graceful shape while having a more crazy mechanical/steampunk element to it.
I'm debating on whether I'll keep the furnace-belly. I like the idea of it, but I may decide on scrapping it as I redesign the overall look.
I'm liking the blue/green hue in the metal - I think I'll be keeping it, but maybe adding more of an oil-stained look
I'm planning on moving away from this design a bit and trying to get more of a darker, grittier look to the overall design. Here his shapes are a little too clean I feel.
