He can cover up for that, considering he drew a dragon anyway.  ;)

That seems to be what the drawing represents as well, although it could be interpreted in any number of ways.

I know, but drawing a dragon is more fun. :P It's just another way of reading the lyrics, a different little world to look into.

Laser: I thought about the undertone of Kaori as well, but in the end just considered it a love song with heavy music and attitude, rather than the usual sugar-sweet ones. These people are in love, but thier idea of a romantic evening is rocking out and jumping around to Machinae rather than going to a candle-lit restaurant. :)

Spiff, I must say I'm honestly and genuinly _very_ impressed.

Some of these drawings are pure genius, in my book, and even though they are not worked over enough,
I think the idea and the composition of almost all of them are wonderful.

I don't remember being this impressed by your previous work, but I must say it now, that you have true
talent and you should keep it up. You'll be an amazing artist, and with the FURY pic, I'd say you've already
succeeded.

If you have a devart account I'll add that pic to favs without hesitation. Furthermore it could have easily
been an album cover. I'm normally against affiliating dragons and swords and stuff with MS, but since
the drawing has the quality lineart and attributes of a comicbook image and not a fantasy image, it climbs
above in my eyes.

Impressive. I love it.


It's my job to keep SID elite.

*Blush* Naw... you did the hard work by making the music that inspired me. :)

On the comment that they're not "worked over", I couldn't bring myself to shade or process any of the pictures except Fury, as I liked their simplistic style (and I was too tired). I'm sure Kaori would look better processed, but there's also something in its purity that disappears when shaded... so I think I'll call it finished.

I also came to think of Rhapsody (the symphonic metal band) when I drew the dragon, not wanting to make it too different from Machinae's style... so I made it as similar as I could to my previous Hybrid pic.

I don't have a Deviantart account, as drawing is too mentally and physically fatiguing. After almost two years of drawing my comic, 20 hours a week, I've become truly sick of drawing, and have returned to programming and pixel graphics. Looking at my homepage, it was nearly two years since I uploaded any pics. It'll probably be another few years until I find the strength to start drawing again, but when I listen to songs as inspiring as Machinae's, I gladly make an exception.

I kind of hoped you'd comment on Elite though. :p

spiff, proud to know you. your interpretations make me curious of the redeemer album more so, look forward to interpretation time for myself =)

I'm surprised nobody commented on the interpretations, theyre so vivid, without even hearing the songs. I have a good piece of audio imagery in my head lol, if that makes any sense. and the drawings are breath taking, the best work you've done yet. The passion is definetly there, and the talent has grown big time.

Great ^^
Your work impresses me. I think I'm gonna print some if you don't mind ^^ (like duo666, but not only Reanimator... my fav is more Kaori Stomp... and Hate... and Rogue World Asylum, and I know the Reaper, and... OK, all ^^;;; )

About your interpretations, I had the chance to get the songs before the CD arrive (yes, temptation was stronger than poor little me, beat me !) and I agree with you... But am I the only one to say a ray of hope at the end of Ronin ? "All the world is yours to keep, all you have to do is walk with me"... I dunno, actually, but it sounds to me like as soon as you make good use of the "candle" hold by time to each of us, things can only get better.
OK... I'm not an English native speaker, so please correct my mistakes instead of just blame me for them v_v

duo666: Yes, I was thinking of that mission when I came up with the Elite pic. :) But I wanted something even grander, and a large audience watching the performance. And who'd want to wake up to a bunch of zombies? :P

Obsi: Yeah, I hear that too... I didn't know how to fit it into the rest, and unfortunately I wasn't motivated enough to draw a better picture. I'm sure others can get very grand mental pictures from this song, it feels more majestic than Ninja on DXM.
