An Interesting Specimen - Concept Drawing
A contemporary automaton by Dug North
This is pencil drawing I did in a graph paper lined sketchbook.
I actually awoke at 2 or 3 AM one morning with the idea. I stayed awake long enough to draw the figure under glass.
The face sketch and other details were added later.
I like the idea that the character in this one would be focused on the the person turning the crank.
And because I really think just a bit of sound takes wooden automata to a new level, I like the idea
that you would be able to hear the little zoologist figure beating against the jar.
