Daily Drawing: Broken Robot

This is a revamp of the robot image from my very first (and, um, only) portfolio from 2010, which I did as an Illustration Friday post:

Since that original image, I've learned a great deal from advice given by my SCBWI Illustration Mentors but especially my experience working on I'M BORED with Laurent Linn and Justin Chanda at Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers.

For the revamped drawing, I tried to keep the loose line but adding a more interesting background and a slightly different perspective. I've also added a few more images in the sequence for my portfolio.
