Nonsensical  Orcamachine by beastofoblivion Nonsensical  Orcamachine by beastofoblivion
I imagine the Orca parts have all rotted away by now.


Old speedpaint textured and touched up a bit.

Looks like I need to fiddle more with the color settings on my monitor. Damn.

Art © Allison Theus, you know the drill.

I love this drawing...despite it reminding me, every bit, of Gyo by Junji Ito. Read it only if you want to be disturbed...

I also don't recommend reading Uzumaki, By Junji Ito, before Gyo in sequence. All in one night. nightmarefuel.

Love the design. Very simplistic, which is what makes it so believable that such a thing could/would exist. The texture on the main body of the machine definitely help it achieve an old, scratched up metallic look. Fantastic work :nod:

i wouldnt have said nonsensical, then again i wouldnt have said orca either. put me more in the mind of something between a crawfish and a red gurnard, either way, nicely thought out!

It's a very creative giant lobsterish critter in my book! Hermit crab waits for nobody! Again, very neat and makes one imagine new stuff. Thanks for the opportunities!

Have you by chance read David Brin's Uplift series?

I guess, a better question to pose up front would be, do you read Sci-Fi?

oohh, nice texture. I like how the greens fade into golds and how it still has an orca shape, with some lobster to it. c: It looks like it could be a monster for cloverfield.
