I like that one as well ^_^ And "Original Sin."

Very intricate! Not many of them actually strike me deeply, but wow, the incredible detail!

Still, I like Giger better ;) although I realize how horrid it is to compare artists of a semi-similar muse.

Deep down, I'm a sick and twisted indvidual :( Giger is actually one of my favourite artists. 8-)

Very interesting...

I personally have always found the skull motifs vaguely disturbing to begin with... I must admit, his work definately has a creepy vibe, but the the attention to detail is amazing!

Not creepy, Crazy...

I've always found the skull motif disturbing... I don't know why... But it probally means you don't have a fear of death...

Me, I fear I don't fear dying, but getting old terrifies me! :lol:

That's amazing work, but I'm with CHL, I like Giger better. Also, don't feel bad CHL, the only one that disturbs me is "Original Sin" cuz of the baby's eyes, but otherwise I think they just look cool. 8-)
