I can't stop looking at this. It's really rare for me to rate something 5 stars all the way, but I just have to for this one.
Vision: Obviously here. Altogether it's absolutely stunning.
Originality: The hand poses and muscle really make me study this. I love the way the beak part forms into the face, almost as if it was meant to be a part of this man. The birds coming by are fluttery and violent at the same time, which I love.
Technique: Not much to say here. It's top-notch; even the ink is amazing.
Impact: Highest point is here. The figure poses and those of the birds make the whole thing feel like it intends to explode or something.

All in all, I love it. Fantastic work.
What do you think?

Not a lot of things are different anymore. By that I mean; sure a lot of art work is what most people might consider "out there." But there's a lot of kida edgy stuff out there nowadays so most of it isnt really all that original.
This is different. This does infact strike me as very, very original, and that's why I like it. Also, the color scheme works great, similar colors hold it together but its still got contrast. And another cool thing is I couldnt put a time period on it. Like some things you look at em and go, "Oh that looks medeval, or that looks futuristic." This is its own thing
