Thanks for the great comments guys!
Yes, it will light up, but its a long ways off until I get that far. If you've ever examined giger's bio-mechincal art up close, especially his paintings.. everything is symmetrical, in one direction while every element of the design is different. Old circuitry is the only way I can describe it. Theres a massive amount of detail. I can already tell it will be overwhelming at times if I'm not in the mood. Theres just no way I or anyone else will come close to replicating his work. You can only draw upon it as inspiration for your own style.
My personal challenge with this project is that my brain likes to see everything symmetrical and matching
. "Theres a notch on the left side, so there should be a notch on the right side" I have to force myself to stop thinking like this. However, I also think a lot of people neglect to see these details in his work and it doesn't matter as much I think it does.
