Illustrator, Photoshop and Cinema 4D are my go to computer art programs.
Concept idea for a 3D mechanical organism modeled and textured in Cinema 4D. Having poor optics, its tentacles are used to feel its way around plus aid in search and retrieval of scrap materials on the floor. Scraps are transported inside the shell to a built in furnace for incineration which also refuels the scavenger. Some materials such as metal can be molten and reused elsewhere. Though clearly a fantastical creature, it could be useful for cleaning in the studio, factory or mine. 2013.
