'Feel Like a Monster' - Full by Christine-Eige 'Feel Like a Monster' - Full by Christine-Eige
The idea behind my artwork is sustainability.... reduce, reuse, and recycle. The less we have in the landfills, the better! All of my artwork is make from 100% recycled materials - materials that were on their way to a life sentenced to a landfill.

This one was inspired by Skillet's song "Monster":

I feel it deep within, it's just beneath the skin
I must confess that I feel like a monster
I hate what I've become, the nightmare's just begun
I must confess that I feel like a monster

I imagined the thing ripping out of the can, showing its power. i PROMISE this piece looks a million times better in person, the photos just dont do it justice. this was made out of Monster Cans, with a touch of Berry Lemonade Jone's Soda.

im so sorry about the photo quality - it was about to rain! D:

Christine-Eige Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010
erm, i use 3 different cameras... a fugi coolpix, a cannon powershot (my favorite small point and shoot), and a Nikon L100 (but it cant use lenses).

these photos were taken with my Nikon - my baby. XD

:iconphantomnayru:
PhantomNayru Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2010  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
neat! Like I said, they're great. The dark, yet detailed is complicated to pull off considering light is needed to see most details.

wish I had one epic camera xD I have a cannon powershot; that's what I take all my pictures with. Often at night, with no lightbox, just white paper held up and Macro on/flash off lmao.

I don't have time for it usually.

One day, I will get one of those super cameras.
