This is one of the few picures I'm going to add in a while, I really don't have much time to draw stuff fitted for elfwood. We had to make up a conceptual machine for a project on school. This wasn't used for the final piece (it was too cliché), but I had fun drawing it, so I'm putting it on. The person next to it may look like an alien, but it is a human! A very misformed one.

I love this piece! It's beautiful. So wonderfully abstract, like a dream. Well, more like a nightmare, but you know. I would not be the least bit suprised if this thing showed up in the next Tim Burton or Hellraiser movie. And the meaning behind it is so powerful. A man being led on by an omnipotent hand, incapable of acting for himself, like the crane on the table. Well done.

On a side note, can you imagine how awesome it would be if Tim Burton directed a Hellraiser movie?
