Wish there was something real
Wish there was something true
Wish there was something real
In this world full of you

I'm the one without a soul
I'm the one with this big fucking hole
No new tale to tell
Twenty-six years on my way to hell
Gotta listen to your big time, hard line, bad luck fist fuck
Don't think you're having all the fun
You know me I hate everyone


NIN - Wish
(I highly recommend that music video, it's a classic)

I felt like it was time for a little old school horror. And by old school, I mean the type of shit I used to do. This is pretty horrible.... possibly disgusting. Last night I had hallucinations with my eyes closed. My mind is in a dark place. But I feel just fine.

Self Portrait. We're all ugly on the inside.

They have some great music videos, and I especially love the lyrics to that song.
Great work! (And once again I find myself thinking how un-fun it must be to have to clean off all that make-up!)

This gives me the creeps. My skin is crawling. This is way too amazing. I adore your old school work and all your work in general.

I love how you incorporated a hand gesture with a facial expression. That's just really neat :love:

Love the sheen on the hand, it works well to tie in with the white of the eyes.

Holy crap where did this come from???
Just when I was getting a bit, well, meh, on your deviations to be honest (not that your work hasn't been superb in concept, execution and finish, as always) I just wasn't feeling it.... Everyone likes something different I guess... Then out comes this, smacks me straight in the face amongst my DeviantWatch entries for the day, and reminds me why I fell in love with your work in the first place. It's the overall feeling, the ability to emote, and to elicit a kind of primal, gut-wrench response and leave me going... wow.....
I would kill for a book of your work. Not a book with your work featured in it, but a book, cover to cover of your stuff. First in the queue for an autographed copy when it's done!
