I reviewed the rendering and I am sure that the title is not appropriate. Clearly, it should be titled SLUDGE PUMPS IN PERGATORY.

I wasn't asking for critique on the title, but I appreciate the effort it must have taken to come up with something so creative.

I can see the elephant in the first one and I LIKE IT! I love the placement of the lowest rectangle, it's very important here IMO.

The second, I'm not getting as clearly. I can see an eye? What's coming out at me is a human figure middle right.
To me, the second needs a little more definition OR alot more texture. Just my taste.

I love what you're doing!
