Preliminary concept sketch for Scratch.  The idea is that he’s the dedicated maintenance bot for the giant city-block-sized machine called the Grounder, made lithe and flexible so he can get into all the mechanical nooks and crannies where things may need checking or fixing.  Knowing all there is to know about the Grounder, and not being aware of many things other than the Grounder, he thinks he’s pretty hot stuff.
Imagine catching two red eyes staring out from the depths of the monstrous mechanical bowels, before they and the unsettlingly thin silhouette they set against the darkness slip away through an opening you didn’t even see was there.
Later, the eyes’ owner trash talks you to the Grounder’s dopey AI system.  What a jerk.
