The Writer by EnigmaticPhantasy The Writer by EnigmaticPhantasy
I saw there was a contest for the movie "9" and decided to challenge myself.
The creature itself took a bit of pre-planning, but it was well worth it.

I got my inspiration from Jaquet-Droz's clockwork automaton. So, this creature is made up of pens, ink bottles, light bulb, clocks, spare gears, an old typewriter, raven skull, quills, and a whole bunch of other stuff.
I guess this creature is unique in that it was not created to hunt anything, but rather record history. It's mostly made with copper and bronze, so you can see some green film forming.

That must have taken long! That is so creative of you to use ink bottles and stuffs like that to come up with the creature! Bet you will win.;)

:shrug: I mostly did it for the challenge, but if I win any place, I'll most likely end up using it to cushion the dent my college books made in my savings. Seriously, 3rd place is just enough to pay off my chemistry book. O.o

Water-soluble pencils work wonders! And listening to uplifting music with a can of soda doesn't hurt. XD
