How underpainting started their other graphic design journey

Summary

We are working on a line of robot characters for a Flash series and because we are not terribly skilled artists, we need revisions to our existing designs for use in our Flash cartoons.

Company name

Maxbots!™

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

We'll start out with the redesign of the protagonist.

Follow the link below to find a basic vector sketch of "Max", the main character in our series. What we need is a more professional looking design, something that gives Max more personality, more depth, and more life.

Max must retain a fair semblance of the original art. Please do not design something new. We want to breathe life into Max, not recreate him.

Max is a robot who lives on the moon with thousands of other robots, good and bad, after the destruction of the Earth and the subsequent extinction of the human race. Max is good-hearted and kind—the leader of the good robots. However, he is no stranger to a fight. He is also one of the most powerful robots, a protector of leaders and a scientist in his previous life among the humans. Max can fire powerful energy blasts from his hands and fly to great heights at great speeds with his awesome jet.

Because this character will be used in Flash animations, we need a
number of expressions and mouth positions for character dialog. We
would like to see Max mad, sad, perplexed, bored, angry, joyful, and
heroic. For the phonems, we'll need the sounds: th, oh, fv, ech, cee, ahh, em, and a resting mouth.

In at least one shot he should be shown firing his weapon.
