King Roach Cranial Development

In a semicircle around this image are sketches for King Roach’s head. King Roach was the giant insect-like humanoid that Brian Daniels transformed into whenever he needed to kick monster butt. KR’s body shape was inspired by the long and lean mecha in Neon Genesis Evangelion. It took me a while to work out the design for KR’s head. I wanted him to be not human yet still humanlike. I wanted him to be able to have expressions and react to the insane things going on around him. We still got some sketches to go before we get to the final design.
