The watchbreaker (i wont apologize for that pun) is a fishlike apparition that will visit in the depth of night to ruin any valuable mechanical heirloom such as pocket watches by meticulously and carefully disassembling and breaking them to make it seem like a century of erosion and weathering took place overnight.

Just a quick illustration, took me something like 6 hours in Photoshop. I’m having tons of fun just stumbling into photoshop, blotting down some rough shapes and coercing these into a finished image. It’s like a personal journey of discovery as I had no idea what this would turn into until being about halfway. I know it’s not a smart or recommendable way of working as it’s almost a stream of consciousness type of approach, like doodling while on the phone, but it’s too much fun to want to work smarter :-) I realize things like framing, composition and perspective suffer with this approach so i’ll try to be just slightly more thoughtful about these in the future.
