So sure, everybody's got their own crazy ways for coming up with character concepts. Myself, I have a tendency to just draw random crap, and keep a personal collection of concepts I feel has merit.
So in my usual random ways, I was doodling in Sketchbook Pro. That is until I had a holy sh*t moment, and quickly copied a doodle to my sketchbook, to help preserve
I don't know what most people's reactions to something like that are. Probably "too simple" or "crap" comes to mind, but I saw that and thought, "dude, that could totally be something". Some wacky character with either a box on their head, rectangular space helmet. Neat.
So a half hour of further development later, we end up with TV head alien "Toob".
The thing is though, this design/concept seems way to obvious
to me. An alien'ish creature, with a head in a "TV", with antennae on the TV itself.
As I see it, there totally has to be a game/tv/cartoon character out there like it. That's where I need your help. Who/what have I telepathically ripped off?
