I like robots. They're neat. You can design them any which-way you want, and as long as the geometry basically makes sense, it's all good. I like gangly figures. All drawn-out and such. The two likes work well together.
So I was thinking, like, a runner, right? Like maybe for a race or something? So I figure I'll draw him looking as much like a sprinter as a racecar, without looking like a Transformer (not that I have any dislike of Transformers. I have a huge Megatron poster on my bedroom wall for a reason). Then, some decoration. And a rare moment of patriotism. Boom.
