show researched :
These are the show I watched in the past 2 weeks to get ideas for the robot personality, appearance concepts, and the overall world for O.U.R.S..
This is the nearest concept to what I have in mind, from the robot characteristic, appearance, to the overall concept. the Lab scene, the destroyed appearance is what i could reference on and I really like it.
The personality of KVN(Kevin, the round robot) of this show got some really interesting personality, it is really irritating and have some sense of self realization that it is easily replaceable was really cool.
watched to get a general sense of a cyberpunk theme(which is the world O.U.R.S was placed in) really cool technological stuffs here and the city was really well made.
Dragon + Robot, quite cool, except for the fact that the anime was good, there was nothing much for me to reference here.
classic, robotic sound can create emotions too, simple movement and eye from the robot could say alot.
it is just an action movie with robot, nothing much here.
current Art Direction for explorer 27:
