On a computer I suck even worse at drawing than I do on a pad of paper. This turned out way better than I expected though, despite the simplicity of the concept. So I figured I would share it.
I am always frustrated at how unclear my mind paints things. If I want to describe a scene that seems so clear as soon as I start I realize I'm missing all of the details. It is like everything I imagine is just out of the corner of my eye.
Below is my first computerized attempt at a crane. I really would like to come up with something more shape based and less like an actual drawing. Something more like a geometric representation of one. Kind of like Pratchet's description of a line drawing that captures the essence of a horse, even if the shape is off.
