“More recently I created the Raging Bull robot, Bessie, of LeSean Thomas animated project, Cannon Busters. This is my latest mecha design and I like it a lot. LeSean gave me only a few hints then completely let me do my stuff. Thanks to the experience I gathered on Basquash and Gyrozetter (a Square-Enix cross media project with transformable robots) I really felt comfortable with his order. The design is, I think, an interesting mix of influences. Because I’m influenced by Japanese mecha designers like Shoji Kawamori and working in Japan for more than 10 years, Bessie shares some similarities with Japanese robots, but at the same time there is a comics feeling going through the overall silhouette. The exagerated proportions and the muscle-like round shapes may evoke Hulk, for example.” – Thomas Romain
