Clockwork Animals

Andrew Chase's mechanical animals seem to have been around for a while, but they're new to me. This seems especially relevant to me because I was recently thinking of some posts on clockwork creatures but just couldn't come up with illustrations I was satisfied with. I like these, they seem rough enough to fit in a fantasy milieu but elegant enough to appear as if they were crafted by the best engineers of the ancients.

There are some more pictures here.

  2. Wonderful, I had missed that.

    Well, I had a clockwork warrior in mind, but yours is better than I had imagined.

  3. i really dug Lord Kilgore's Clockwork Octopus.

  4. Oh yes, that too. I even love the sound of that.
