This is the first concept sketch ever drawn of Retro in San Francisco's android characters. At this time, the idea behind the droids was mainly centered around an advanced and interactive dance teaching robot. Beat was the power house of the trio as the dancer, with Bass and Drop as his back up crew.
I was also attending my first watercolor painting class when the first concepts of Retro started coming into my creative conscious. This is one of my first finished pieces with watercolor, featuring the trio once again in experimental coloration. Retro at this time had a head that was modeled after a 1998 iMac computer.
