Shame he has to do terrifying things to the poor creatures. I can envision harmless testing; work against the cliches.

At first I was like, "Aw, isn't that sweet, the scary guy wants to keep butterflies as pets!" Then I read your summary and was like, "Ohhhhhh shiiit...."

Wait a minute...this guy has all this sci-fi futuristic equipment, and the best thing he can use to capture things is glass? Glass is fragile! Why not some sort of plastic or polymer device?
Reply
:iconthomaswievegg:
thomaswievegg Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
haha, because glass is pretty :D Nah, I don't know. But if you look closely the glass jars are pretttty high tech, plus! who knows if those jars are fragile? They could just as well be hard as s*** :)
Reply
:iconzblayde:
ZBlayde Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
Yeah, I did notice the markings on the jars, nice touch. It's just that I'd envisioned, I don't know, some kind of floating bubble-like device controlled by remote, that would open and seal itself to capture creatures. But hey, we all envision the future differently, right?

I guess it is night in this picture or? :lol:
If yes i think it should be darker and i think there wouldn't be the bright spots at his head and on the glasses, since the only light source is under his head :noes: And because of that, the hand should have some bright spots :lol:
I think it would add more atmosphere :aww:

it looks great :dummy:

Hey thanks for the input! :) It's actually suppose to be at day. But he's in a jungle so the trees provide the shade, making it a bit darker. Thanks again :aww:
