Was most fortunate to be asked to write a chapter for the upcoming Digital Painting Techniques Vol. 4 so I painted this as a tutorial piece to demonstrate my approach, painting metals, liquids, calculating reflections and yes, illustrating psychotic pets.

Do not build one of these at home... water and electricity together are not your friend.

looks like something foglio's girl genius would come up with.
I see the Prussian military tradition is alive and well.

I once created an EXTREMELY similar goldfish character who also moved around on land in a fish bowl, with two control sticks inside, atop a machine controlled by the fish - but I drew that when I was 7, haha, so I didn't draw the machine part with THAT much detail! Looking at this is like having an adult professional artist realise my childhood character in its full glory. :XD: Man I'm getting the nostalgic feels.

Well, I'm kinda an adult now, but still. :XD: Love the rendering! :happybounce:

Clearly great minds think alike ;)... even if you were 7 at the time. Glad I could inadvertently realise your childhood drawing :D

Cheers!

Can't think of any puns, which is shocking, and could lead to a catastrophe.

You have got serious talent.  I salute you.

Haha! I was raised on a diet of puns and bad jokes... probably shows in my work ;)
Thanks for the Salute too... not often I get one of those!
