This is genuinely creepy, even by your admittedly high standards! I just wonder where hell you came up with this stuff. You related Mr. Pickman? Heh...

Iron Maiden is the only band whose albums I ever bought because of their cover artwork. "Piece of Mind" was the first one I got and I bought it because I was entranced by Eddie fighting against his chains in the padded cell. It was so evocative and emotional.


This is gorgeous. Your interpretation of Eddie is easily the best I've seen.

That is one wicked Eddie; far more spooky than the ones I drew in high school.
