An Interesting Specimen - Refined Drawing

  - a contemporary automaton by Dug North

I did this image in Adobe Illustrator, and then brought it into Adobe Photoshop for the filter effect.

Unlike some of my computer drawings, this one did not act as a scale plan or any sort of mechanical schematic.

I used this drawing to work out more of the conceptual details -- what the figure and hand would look like, and where the hand was coming from. The trees were added to give the scene scale and to make it seem less like the hand was coming out of a flat piece of wood.
