Check out Giga-bite, whom Downing describes as "a super computing nano-colony constructed from junk." Maybe Downing's days as a "Wall-E" animator served as inspiration?
Downing has worked on films such as "Brave," "Up," "Wall-E," and other Pixar masterpieces. He counts superheroes as his hobby and said he started the project to counteract a creative rut.
"I felt that my artwork was stagnating and my ideas weren't exciting or interesting," he told Crave. "The idea was that of I spent a half an hour to an hour a day creating supers I'd eventually be forced to loosen up and start thinking creatively again. Now at 315 supers I honestly feel like 'mission accomplished.'"
