Inbetween seasons of Rick and Morty I art directed a sci-fi animated comedy pilot. Still not clear as to whether or not it will see the light of day but I wanted to post a few images that I spent a lot of sweat on. The top four Bgs I designed and painted, thought the characters would play well off this look without any black lines which was a much different process than Rick and Morty. I designed the main cast, although the sad sack gay robot was changed later on to be a little more beaten up and gruff looking, I still liked this version. Lastly, the family's spaceship 'Polio', I designed loosely resembling the shape of a thanksgiving day turkey.
