Catchaser 3000 by Loopydave Catchaser 3000 by Loopydave
Was most fortunate to be asked to write a chapter for the upcoming Digital Painting Techniques Vol. 4 so I painted this as a tutorial piece to demonstrate my approach, painting metals, liquids, calculating reflections and yes, illustrating psychotic pets.

Do not build one of these at home... water and electricity together are not your friend.

Pencil sketch, painted in photoshop.

We at Loopydave industries™are glad you like the Catchaser 3000. Unfortunately, due to some manufacturing problems and an unfortunate tendency to electrocute its user, we have had to temporarily take the Catchaser 3000™ off the market. In the meantime, if your goldfish is experiencing cat difficulties, we suggest other methods of control... possibly a restraining order or hiring a fish friendly dog.
Kind regards,
Loopydave Industries

Its since been superseded by the Catchaser 4000, which features racing stripes, and extra reverse gear and a more stable walking mechanism ;)

Awesome design! It made me laugh :D The little anti kitty flag and the little kitty food prints >.<  I really love how you rendered out the materials here. The light through the water in the shadow is beautiful ( as is every thing else!) Shocked

Thanks Michelle... appreciate the kind words and taking the time to leave a comment. Oh, and for laughing at the goldfish... he takes himself soooo seriously, he needs to be reminded that its not all about hunting cats and he should take the time to laugh as well ;)
