Something fishy

I've been out in the garage for a few days now building the new "Access Shaft" set. It's coming along pretty good. I'll post some in progress pictures soon. In the meantime here is something old.

The robot drones in my film were originally inspired by a type of deep-sea angler fish. The end result doesn't look much like a fish- but I feel like basing some of the shapes on an actual living creature gave it some depth. You can see from my ugly Photoshop design that it was going to be more organic originally. When I got to building it I decided to go more mechanical.

so COOL, ethan. It's fun to see where design changed and came from. You went from Eon Flux/Yellow Submarine/Flash Gordon to a 2001/Blade Runner/StarWars style, more synister. I like both.
you are THE mad~scientist!!
Thanks for all your secret textring tips over the years.
