Great use of texture, love the colors too. By some twist of reason, he resembles the masks worn in Pink Floyd's "Brick in the Wall".

wow, amazing...I think this looks really painterly.

Thanks - I almost switched the colour balance round (with red light on the right and blue on the left), but eventually decided that this combination worked better.

Thanks Christine!

It's an album by the band Slayer... which was actually released in 1990! The frayed textures were created with one of photoshop's custom brushes.

I have no idea what 'seasons in the abyss' might be (don't tell me I'm over thirty!!) but this is a pretty cool picture. I like the frayed texture of the rope and the color contrasting in particular.

Man this is so spooky! But so well done.

A dark picture, but I love it. Great use of color and lighting, the warm/cool contrast works really well IMHO.

Art at its best.
