a detailed sketch for the cigarette case. I try out exploring different carvings for the case and I also iterated the handhold view for the gadget to demonstrate the size of the gadget.
painting of a scene where all three gadgets are placed in a prison. the bucket is placed on the victims head but he is not killed but terrified and his hand is tied on the chair. I was thinking this gadget can be used by them to beat the victim up to get information from them by torturing them.
