    A work in progress printing press scene with gremlins causing chaos. For a printing press expo client.

    Created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Still need to complete the scene plus one or two other tweaks.

    Any suggestions / thoughts?

    Final version now attached.

    I drew the forms and shapes as wireframes in Illustrator using an isometric grid (no 3D tool). I'm colouring, texturing and shading the piece with Photoshop, as well as adding effects etc.

    Thanks for your comment!

    Bertha lovely Bertha... sometimes i think you're a dream!

    The shadow underneath the main treadmill conveyor belt coming out the mouth looks a little funny. It might have the same curve as the object it is created from but it just looks a bit jarring. Almost makes it look like a physical shape in it's own right.

    Loving the flat plasticine-esque character emerging from the rollers!

    @Andrew Edwards Ha, yes there is a definite homage to Bertha, child of the 80's for you.

    I agree with you re the shadow, been scratching my head how to solve, will try a few things.

    Thanks for taking the time to write constructive criticism.

    I thought thats what this site is for! Haha.

    Yeah loving the bertha theme tune. Stuck in my head for the rest of the day!

    Regarding the shadow - not sure what the answer is....perhaps taking the curve off and knocking it back a bit (opacity wise) may help!?!?
