Fanart: Muse album Drones
 
Dead Inside
Here you see the first page. The main character is Mary. As newly weds she lost her the love of her life who died in a land far away. He stands as a dead soul and is trying to comfort her. She becomes dead inside.
The Drill Sergeant
Here you see Mary joining the army to fight for the same cause as her husband fought for. The sergeant indoctrinating her. No place for feelings he screams. YOUR ASS BELONGS TO ME NOW!
 
Control Button
On this page you see a control button. These make the book interactive. By sliding this button you will see the next fase of the story.
 
Here you see the next fase, Mary wearing the uniform.
 
The Drone
This is what the album is called. I used a real drone within this story. Another control button will reveal the next horryfing scene.
 
Psycho
Indoctrinated by the military Mary controls a drone to fight the war from far away. Within her reign of terror she makes alot innocent victims.
 
Mercy
Mary relizes what she has become. No empathy and filled with hate, she became a killing machine. You see her attached to strings, but she is cutting herself free. On the other page you see the handler, who represents dictators and corrupt governments.
 
Control Button
This button will open her eyes. She sees what she has become and cuts herself free from the handler.

 
Defector
Now free, Mary revolts and is leading an campaign to overtrow corrupt governments and she is trying to influence people around her. Admits the crowd she finds a man who joins her in this cause.
From this point on, there is no control button anymore. She takes control of her own life again.
 
 
Aftermath
They fall in love. He assures her that, from this moment on they will never be alone and that they are now bound forever.
...the end.
When the book closes, their faces will touch forever... until the book opens again ofcourse.
 
The Illustrations
First I began drawing the story on paper. After I finished the drawings I used programs like Illustrator and Photoshop to finish the design.
