Metal scent by Alfredsson Metal scent by Alfredsson
A brave mouse is on the run, sick of all the horrible and painfull experiments he had to endure in the lab.
After a long and adventurous escape he finally reaches the light in the end of the tunnel, marking his freedom.
Suddenly he gets a strong feeling of danger nearby.
He stops for just a moment, sniffing in the air but there is no scent of danger, only metal...

Metal scent by ~Alfredsson wonderfully demonstrates this 3D artist's attention to detail in modelling and texture work. Moreover, on a non-technical level, one is shown an image with a very creative story behind it. ( Featured by bluespeed9 )

Excellent detail and description...I feel a slight foreboding to Metal Gear (Solid Snake). No idea if that's intended but I love the work.

Well, I got 1 gig too, and the computer I've done all my current images on was an AMD something 2100 something XP or so. Not overly powerful. The textures are as highres as they need to be, not higher, and only 256 colors so they dont need that much textures.

...b-but, but the mouse is okay right?
He, he escapes then frees all the other lab mice and rats and monkeys and bunnies they try new hairsprays on... and then they kill the scientists.... right? And then hippies rule the earth and we consequently run out of clean laundry.

These are all quite excellent...the combination of 3d modules and photoshop make for shadowy magical realism that is delicious to behold.
