Nooo idea how long I have spent on it, but yea, this is one hell of an experiment... Most of it was done with oil paints, but oh silly me~ I couldn't paint on another layer with acrylics, so this damn thing has three layers of mat acrylic varnish (the varnis didn't want to stay on either) an oh glory~ The acrylics still didn't want to stay on the varnish layer. So... This is one hell of an annoingly unpleasant effing half assed abstract-ish experiment and the result is as bad as possible... Blaaa.... Should have stayed to watercolours and markers, I guess.

Snickering, Dryne sat back on his lizard-skin swivel chair admiring his latest purchase from behind a one-way mirror.
"She's perfect," he said to himself. "Whoever created this one was a fool to let her loose unattended. She'll do very well in my arena."
I was watching the preview trailer for the feature-length Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov movie 9 (based off the 10-minute animated short by the amazing Shane Acker) and I was immediately brought back to my old drawing from last year, the war machine: [link] , and to a lesser extent, my cyborg monkeys from forever ago.
Now, because the trailer is sooo amazing, and quite honestly I loved the little connection to my own work (not a rip-off, mind you, just turns out Shane likes robotic animals with real skulls, too) I decided to do another, like piece, but this time with a rat skull. This is what came out. Drawn on Christmas eve. Wewht. No reference, except for the skull.
