The Soldier

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Laura Blackham

This is a picture that I began to draw one day while lounging on the sofa, which, incidentally, is next to the computer, which is where my brother, John H. Blackham, who is also an Elfwood artist (you can look him up), was playing StarCraft. He got off, and then saw me drawing. He added a few things, like the robot arm, and modified the head a bit. I drew the rest.  How the arm works: according to John, the little sail shell thingie is a stretchy container that holds a lot of extendable cable, which gives the guy the ability to extend the arm as far as he wants. Or as far as the cable goes. Whichever works, I suppose. This is printed with his full and absolute permission. As I have said, you can look him up if you want to see his art. Update: John is serving as a missionary in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and so his account is probably deleted by now. So you probably won't be able to find any of his art anywhere. But he's still awesome. :) MORE Update:John's back. His account's still probably deleted. We are sad. :( You know, looking at this makes me feel very nostalgic......... I'm still not going to finish it, though.
