 Love this! I've just discovered this series and am reading the last book, and have to admit, I could never quite put my mental finger on what the Shrike really looked like. (Mostly because it is described as being covered in razor wire and that always throws me.) This is totally what it looks like! :) Scary!

Glad you like it! It was described as big and chunky, but I thought a machine so far advanced would have a more elegant, organic aspect.

would make a Bad ass fight in a movie just alien blood and explosions and bullets.
Plot twist the bullets can make a explosion due to the electrical sandstorm.

Thats quite awesome, the Shrike what lept to mind when I glimpsed the picture.  Certainly fits the bladed "you are definitely going to die" image.

I just stumbled upon your artwork again, how's the Birrin book coming along?  Really love the creatures you've created. You don't have a donate button on your website for all the times I've used your drawings as wallpapers on my desktop?

Although all I would say is already said by other commentators, I just couldn't pass around this work without a word. It strikes terror, but yet is attractive, elegant and - believeable, in the measure that makes spectator to interact.
