The moment has come, here's the full reveal of the two heroes of the Inc book project, Landis and Inc The Robot! Together they go on a very unique journey on a desert planet, where even a drop of water can mean the difference between life and death.
Inc was designed, modeled and textured by Neil Blevins using 3dsmax, vray and photoshop. Landis was designed, modeled and textured by Bill Zahn.
Inc's design is inspired by classic robots such as those of Ashley Wood, R2D2 from Star Wars of course, The Iron Giant (especially the eyes) and construction equipment. My wife thinks he looks like Ike from Southpark :) The goal was to make him "cute", but still able to smash people when necessary. In his former career, he was a welder robot, hence his spot welding weapon of choice. But he has since been retrofitted by Landis for a whole new function.
