It started as a simple, eureka-like, brainstorm: A robot controlling a gorilla controlling a bigger robot! It's monkeys AND robots combined, and we all know that's a cliched, yet reliable, formula for gold-plated success! I sketched it out, keeping the larger robot rather simple (I had just seen the TRANSFORMERS movie and, as good as it was, It put me in the mood for some ... less complicated robots), and the smaller one even more simple. The idea of a small robot manipulating a gorilla in order to manipulate an even larger robot just seems like a winner to me, and I've got some plans to extend this idea, which I can't go into yet. Anyway, for now, here's the pencils for the large robot and a blow-up of the gorilla controller (with minirobot in his head). Enjoy.
