Welcome to Slagshaft, Organopolis, deep in the shadow of the mountain of the mirror.

In drawing this set, I discovered that when I work faster I do a better job in general of getting individual elements in the right place, although those elements or details each may be less accurate.
Whereas when I work more slowly and allow myself to get caught-up in the details, I lose track of scale and proportion much more quickly.
