I was inspired by the extraordinary images of recent times. I wanted to recreate some of the characters I saw in the news coverage, particularly the assembly of protective gear and heavy clothes into makeshift uniforms.

The vehicle is an autonomous land vehicle, I imagined it would transport supplies over any kind of terrain it might encounter. It has independent wheels so it can send power to which wheel needs it most as well as being able to raise and lower the wheels individually for particularly tricky obstacles. Altering the spin of each wheel is how it would steer akin to a tank.
I wanted to create a cartoony character that would translate well to a 3d rendering. I chose the character of a Squire as there were several ways I imagined it could be implemented with different opportunities for characterisation.
