Creation of Ronny the Robot

The second book out of the Fun Worxx series, called Ronny the Robot’s Rumbling Rhapsody will be out within the next month, so I thought it might be fun to share how Ronny the character came about.  What an exciting adventure it was, creating Ronny the Robot!

I knew the character had to have a strong exterior, but also be soft within. So with a lot of brain storming with my husband, we thought to create his character as a robot. Robots have strong bodies made of metal and yet can be quite vulnerable internally, because of all their wires and hardware. So a robot was our best choice.

So these are the very first rough drawings of Ronny:

In the end I liked different aspects of these drawings and pulled the parts I liked together, to make what Ronny is today:

And finally when I added colour to Ronny, this is what he looked like:

Then Ronny evolved from being orange to being more of a redish colour. Here’s an image of the front cover. For more info on the little lessons Ronny learns on his adventures & potential lessons your children could learn from his story, click on this link.
