Rasterizer is the title and name of my entry for the D-mag comic book themed mascot contest.
I created Rasterizer based on my love of photoshop and digital painting and the rasterizor represnets that love of artistry and it's strange juxtaposition aside digital technology. Can a robot create, can it think? Or does the machine just speed up our own human creative potential?

I began with a rough sketch I did in pencil and paper then moved into a digital painting in an 8"X8" template I use in RGB. I borrowed some techniques from some of my favorite 'robot and mecha' artists Feng Zhu and Doug Chiang for rasterizor and also had a great time using the awesome brushsets from concept on a Mac which was recommended to me by Patrick Rodes, a very talented former pupil of mine.
