Did any of you ever watch Jimmy Neutron as a kid? Do you remember his dog, Goddard?
I’m making something a little similar. He can’t fly ,or talk, or think, or light up or even move, but it still has the feel of somewhat of an industrial themed animal. Basically, the inspiration came from a valve with two gauges on it that kind of looked like a puppy face.
After that, I just had to salvage the rest of the pieces: ducting for the body, another valve for a tail, and some suspension springs for the legs. We’ll see how it turns out, I think he’ll be kind of fun.
I thought about it a little bit more, and the industrial components made into a living thing could serve as a commentary on how removed we’ve become from living things due to technology…
