Notes

Spoiler

The image below was my main reference, but Hutch has been heavily modified, so it deviates quite a bit. I just liked the idea of a big, gentle, nervous robot exploring the galaxy. The idea that he wears a bit of cloth like a cloak, as if it might protect him or maybe it's a security blanket, is funny to me.

Thanks for looking!

I am a big fan of the colors and the way they pair with the scenery. The balance between symmetry and asymmetry is just right. Also thanks for introducing me to this clone wars artwork.

Really nice idea with the probe droid - so glad that someone used this episode to build something mech-like. I think the colours work really well especially with the bright sea. I think I slightly preferred the head design that you shared in the WIP stage - all the sensors looked really cool! The landscape is also really great!

I was worried when you shared the WIP, that this would be too much mech. It is a little manga/mech, but also really well done... Not totally sold on it in-universe, but the model is badass! Great texture on the beach as well!

Thanks! I did have a smaller probe designed to stick on as a head, or a hermit-shell like shoulder pad, but it felt like it detracted from the build over all.

I like it! Just Star Wars-y enough to fit.

Great droid! A bit Transformers-biased but still SW enough. Great details and surface! I guess I need to grab an Avengers set to get those ball joins :laugh:
