Metal Eyes

Don't ask me to explain what's going on here in this design. It's obvious. Don't you see it? Ugh. Do I have to explain everything? This is clearly what happened when GLaDOS and HAL 9000 had children. Well, several generations down the line, at least. These are probably their great, great, great grand-cores. Now 30% less homicidal toward humanity, because well, all of the humans have already been wiped out. Probably. At least on Earth.

It's been a while since I've created a design that looks fairly tech. The last time I tried my hand at this stuff, I created a design named “Embryo Injector”, but that was like… a lifetime ago. I hope I can get back into the habit of making designs this complex and awesome looking; I'm quite proud of this one, and would like to continue developing some designs in this direction. It's just so hard to have the energy left over to be able to -be- inspired after getting home from a stressful work day of problem solving needlessly complex technical shenanigans. You know what though? Some artists' works of art are so powerfully inspiring that they help me end my day creatively regardless of the frustration. This particular animation was fueled by a piece by @iamstylow, titled “Day 155 - Eye.C.U.”. Thanks, Stylow. :)
