Mr. Clowder. I want to express my appreciation for the phenomenal work you do and especially for the game which you are releasing soon. I know that many people on Uboachan quickly discredited you when it came to the foreground of the discussion that you are a collage artist, but it is obvious from the art viewable here that you are both a true artist and an exceptional one, and the fact that collage is your medium does not detract from your prowess or your originality in any way. I am still eagerly anticipating the release of Middens, as many are, I think, and I am also a huge fan of your work. Thanks for sharing this with us at no cost!

Trains have always seemed sinister to me, and this reflects those hidden horrors amazingly! Shame that the wheels haen't been incorporated though.

This is great! The style and design of this machine has me truly intrigued - I've got to learn more about this story! Was this done for someone else, or is this story your own creation?

This was completed as a concept for a game development project of mine, and will also appear in a bestiary I've been working on. The idea for the train arose from reflections on the holocaust camps, where prisoners were transported in mass via train. The train of the dead functions similarly, carrying its cargo of souls from the world of the living to the grottos of hell. You might also say it's a parody of the Hogwarts Express.

Interesting - your inspirations came across in the piece quite well (except for the Hogwarts express reference - lol). It would be interesting to see other pieces from this story!

Why did you go with organic legs and not mechanical ones?

I wanted to imply the train was something sentient beyond a machine. From the beginning I imagined it as a chimera of flesh and metal, the train cars acting as a sort of millipede like carapace.

Very clever! However, I think scorpions are immune to their own poisons. It's the one they stink that is affected and eventually die.

So, the moral of the story is "Leave your car at home and take public transportation!" ;)

the sound of this train crawling along the track at ANY speed would be unnerving...but then that would be the point of a train of the dead when you think about it. Would look really cool if you ever animated this...

Drainwreckorpion. Fuckinglove you man. All those chelate, myriapedalegs are so seamlessly tucked into the dark under matter, and that lupine, gargriffin anomammaly crammed betwixt the carriages generates a fleeling of gearigged avigation.
