tombot

Robot prototype, 267, originally designed/built by red leader himself. The robot is much shorter and lighter than many other of his designs, and serves no purpose in the base. However, this odd model follows our leader around. The boss seems to take better care of this one as well for an unknown reason. There’s almost never dents or scratches on his outer metal shell. Not much else is known about it because leader is oddly private about this robots information. From other soldiers, I have heard that Red Leader calls it Tom.

I keep getting asked what materials I use for my coloring. So here is a picture of my main art supplies and what I use the most.

1. My Copic  collection and what I use mainly for color shading. These are all skin tone colors.
2. Tombot markers
3. Pentel White pen
4. Prismacolor col-erase pencils. These are amazing! Color pencils you can erase
5. White pencil for highlights
6. Toned sketch book (my fav is tan followed by the gray tone)
7. Pentel inking pen and Bic pens for inking

I also use crayola color pencils for added shading.

I hope this answers some questions :>

…you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. 

Tomorrow is my last day at MAL.

The path that we’re on isn’t always clear. And I’m beginning to accept that even if you try to control and understand everything, you just can’t always know where the dots are leading you.

It seems I was lead to this place at exactly the right time. I can’t articulate the importance of the magical experiences & people I’ve met in the last year.

However, people & events aligned to tell me this is right moment to take a risk, to go out and try something I’ve wanted to do forever. I believe I’m finally ready to overcome the mental barrier that has been impeding my ability to make things… To figure out what those things may create… To accept that this is what makes me, me. 

It’s time to jump.

I’m tombot to some, tomarthur to others, often a goof, overly humble and incredibly stubborn at the same time. I can’t accept things for the way they are and I want to bring good things to life. 

You know I’m not usually one to quote people. But I feel like I’m finally understanding what Steve was trying to tell us:

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your hear tand intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Here we go.
