"Like Prometheus we are bound,
Chained to this rock of a brave new world,
Our godforsaken lot.
And I feel that's all we've ever needed to know,
'Til worlds end and the seas run cold."

damn, this was huge...almost killed my computer...
EDIT: I accidentally submitted the wrong version...it's ok now.

Crazy-wicked. Love how the contrast of eye color cuts through the other colors and gleams forth.

Wow....

my only complaint would be, the horns seems to start outside the skull instead of growing out from it. get my drift?

but its minimal. the overall feel of the piece is fantasticular!

Your imagination scares me a tiny bit lol. It's so amazing though.. is this total randomness for you or did you have something in mind when you started? The shell looks like an aligators tail curled up from the thumbnail..

hard to explain, really, but no, not total randomness... I'm a big fan of Hieronymus Bosch and H.R. Giger...they both created strange looking creatures. I enjoy creating stuff that has something ancient looking as well as modern machinery. Nature raped by the worst monster, man. I also love to let my imagination guide the work while I'm doing it, apart from the fact what one can do and cannot do. My recent works are in some level about greed and the illness of mankind and what that does to this planet.

Another great piece :) Quite intriguing too. I like the relaxed colours, but (sorry, i hate buts too) i don't think the red of the shell/swirl goes with the creamy yellows. My only suggestion on that would be to fiddle with the colouring of the shell and see how it turns out :)


Another favourite :)

strange blending.. but hence eye catching. i like it, the body is manipulated just awesomely..
well.. i only think the last texture (overall i guess?) deteriorates the quality of it. like it was scanned with low resolution..
