    An Ilyushin IL-2 aerosaur “Sturmi”

    Alice Bruderer from Los Angeles, US, is a talented industrial designer by day and a creature doodler by night. All of her mechanized monsters have a story and are part of a bigger project that Alice is working on.

    "The creatures are the physical embodiment of the ‘spirit' of these machines. And the world they are depicted in is a glimpse into a strange alternate Earth, where these machine spirits are brought into the physical world as the ‘biomechs' by the hand of a mysterious creature race. They evolve alongside mankind, and this element fundamentally changes the course of history as we know it," Alice shared her ideas with Sputnik. "More of the actual story will be released in time!"

    Quite a few Russian characters have found there place among the fascinating and at the same time pretty spooky "aerosaurs" in the designer's mechanized monster series. "They are important to my story, so you will be seeing more of the fighters soon," the artist said.

    Check out more of Alice's artwork at her Artstation, Deviantart and Tumblr pages.
