Pax 101: A peaceful cardboard robot / by Shingo Shimizu

It's been a while since my last artwork update. I've been quite busy with a number of varied projects, especially with this character design called 'Pax', which was commissioned by The Hive. Built with a sheet of cardboard, Pax is a peaceful robot hoping to bring peace in the Middle East.

The final version is pretty close to what I envisioned. Except:

1) the original head side flaps were bent (so it could be more expressive), instead of the current stiff flaps-straight-out look, and

2) the original design required no glue for the joints, and it does currently. Other than that, I'm pretty pleased with the finished product.
