Aye Create a Kid Robot Munny

September 2, 2008

Not exactly the greatest showcase of my design work but I was bored on the train back from a photoshoot in London and had a blank Munny kicking round so set to work on it with a black marker. It’s the first one I’ve ever done and it was real tricky to work out when to stop, you don’t wanna do too little and you don’t want to cover the little fella in marker pen. I went for a camo patern stylee in the end with plenty white space!

Now you’ve seen my piss poor attempt, check out the actual Munny forums to see how the experts are doing them and doing them proper!!!
