This is my entry for the Odd bots challenge! The GRDNR-0617 is a bot dispatched by the government hundreds of years ago to ensure the well-being of gardens. They where multiples bots like this one but he is the last one still in function. This project was one of my first finished piece and I really learned a lot. I even made a simplified 3d model in Blender to help me with the shading. It was really fun to do the design process too! Good Luck to everybody!! :)
Hi, this is my entry - which, I think is quite self explanatory. :) It's supposed to assist farmers is sowing crops, and tries as much to be environmentally friendly, using solar-powered energy, and even gravity to help funnel seeds from its elevated "backside" down into the front. Talk about pooping "backwards". Also, a little straw hat just to give it that Southeast Asian vibe.... cause you know, it's where I'm from. HAHA. Hope you likey!
Beep bop it’s the Milk Bot I was leaning into “milking” the oddness factor out so was really trying to make something different and unique, apologies if this came out a bit too creepy but would love to hear your thoughts, feedback and/or concerns haha. It has a has a durable arm for extracting milk alongside artificial udders for dispersing stored milk.
Blob bot submission! An amorphous gel with millions of carbon fiber nano-bots that can be programmed to make it's skeleton into any shape. The machine parts build air-tight floatation chambers around themselves to focus on movement, rather than holding itself upright/ moving. Tendrils connected to the surface of the gel maintain shape, and deliver air pressure for the floats, when needed. Robotic tendril appendages, optics, and even pressurized hydraulics can be procedurally generated. It's been fun seeing what everyone came up with, and I already see a few of my favorites getting some love.

I feel like i have been sketching and thumbnailing for days, such a cool idea for a challenge! Anyway, i'd really love some feedback on what you all think is odd enough (if any) and any direction ideas! I am leaning towards 1,3, and 4

This is G.O.R.D.O.N my multi-conscious odd bot. This was my first idea and sketch so any critiques would be great. Not sure what to add for extra detail, if there should be color, ext. I’ll be working more on them this weekend.

Before I actually start painting, here is my concept for a gel droid. The idea is that an amorphous gel with millions of carbon fiber nano bots in it can be programmed to make it's skeleton into any shape. The machine parts build air-tight floatation chambers around themselves to focus on movement, rather than holding itself upright. Tendrils connected to the surface of the gel maintain shape, and deliver air pressure for the floats, when needed. I'm still unsure about the shape, and may consider zooming out the composition to get a more unique profile. I was also considering just playing with opacity of layers in photoshop for the translucence effect, but now leaning towards straight up using opaque brush strokes throughout.
