Tiny Toy Robot

Tiny Toy Robot Doodlewash by Charlie O'Shields

 

Based on your vote (which was a bit closer this time!) here’s a little mechanical wonder from Santa. Very little time to paint today, so this is just a quick urban sketch before dinner because I was playing with him while Philippe made us some soup. I actually did get a robot whose eyes sparkle like I wanted (not the Sparkling Mike I doodlewashed a couple months ago, but one that’s just as cool!). This, however, isn’t that robot as I was lucky enough to score two robots! The robot shown here is tinier and super cute. Plus he plays the drum, so he’s also quite talented.  Or it could be a she… super hard to tell with robots.

Today’s post is going to be super short. I blame one of my other gifts which was Lego Dimensions, a mash-up Xbox One game of various characters from the Wizard of Oz to Batman. It’s incredibly fun and Philippe and I can play together so that’s what we’ve been doing this afternoon and will continue doing after dinner. This is my favorite part of Christmas! For days afterward, you get to wake up to new toys you’ve yet to play with properly. Well, at least when you’re super young at heart or an artist, or most preferably… both! Hope you all are enjoying the gifts you received this year as well!

        I ordered from Dick Blick and they don’t have much in the way of fountain pens so will order this from Amazon later this week. I ordered a Koh Rapidograph pen to try and a few other supplies. 😄

    Woo-hoo…does he play a mean tune on that drum?! As to the Lego Dimensions, I only know the real Legos plastic building blocks…is it like that, only on computert? If so, what fun! 😀

      It’s just like that! Hehe… It’s a 3D computer game that looks just like the Lego minifigures and toys. The best part is, there’s a physical component so you have actual Lego you have to put together during the game in order to advance. My inner child is going crazy for it!! Lol 😊😃

      Thanks Jodi!! ❤️😃 Ended up in bed early actually…all this playing is exhausting!! Guess that’s what happens when a 7 year old has the unfortunate prospect of living in a middle-aged body. 😊

    Toy robots are always a winner. Nice sketch, Charlie.

      Thanks Kirk!! Glad you liked him…it’s weird having time off because I feel like I get too distracted and actually have less time to sketch! Lol

    Yay, you got a robot!! That Santa knows you too well. Awesome doodlewash!

    I’ve never played these Lego games, but they all look so cool. Have you seen the new game Lego Worlds? I saw it recently and thought of you. It’s coming out next year apparently.

      I did get a robot!! Santa is awesome!!! Lol And I did see that game, but not sure if we’ll get it yet. I didn’t think we’d end up with dimensions as Philippe initially referred to it as a “money pit” because of all the other figures you can buy. Hehe… He does extensive research on each game and reads reviews before they are approved for purchase! 😊Lol I’ll get him researching Lego Worlds! Yay!

        Lots of games do that to you, don’t they – microtransactions and whatnot. It’s partly why I’ve gone off gaming! That looked pretty fun though – like a bottomless box of Lego!

        It is pretty fun, but there are parts where you have no idea what you’re doing and then it suddenly works and you have no idea why. That gets a bit frustrating! But other than that it’s been fun!

    Super cute robot and what a fun day! So glad you two are having so much fun together!

      We’re having a blast! But get tired fast! Lol…too much excitement I guess. Little boys and their toys. Glad you like my robot, Cathe! 💕😃

  9. So cute, Charlie! Glad you’re having fun! We should all play, it’s good for us. 🙂
