the weekly ink #4

this week's sketch entry...

i will admit, this is an idea that did not start off as my own.  credit is due to my design manager and mentor, Matthew T. Baggins.  through our weekly creative convergences, he proposed the idea to sculpt a "marker" from the video game franchise, Dead Space.  i thought it was a great idea!  and with all great ideas, i did what anyone would do, i stole it and made it mine for all eternity.  the only difference is, i'm going to attempt to make the "marker" into a lamp.......for those who don't know what a "marker" from Dead Space is, here's what i can tell you.  these things have some sort of religiously mental and physically disgusting effects on human beings.  this is a structure built of other-worldly powers designed to bring forth some type of universal convergence.  it makes people insane, they try to harm themselves and others, they also begin to act like religious fanatics with cult-like beliefs and in the end are turned into the monstrously savage beings called Necromorphs.  man, i'm such a sucker for sci-fi survival horror, i can't wait to get started!
