The Masque of the red death by ~0marchhare0 has rhythm all over in the figures' composition, decorative elements and repetition, with unique stylization and concept. And from Edgar Allan Poe, no less!

The Masque of the red death

Be sure they were grotesque. They were much glare and glitter and piquancy and phantasm - much of what has been since seen in Hernani. There were arabesque figures with unsuited limbs and appointments. There were delirious fancies as the madman fashions. There were much of the beautiful, much of the wanton, much of the bizarre, something of the terrible, and not a little of that which might have excited disgust. To and fro in the seven chambers there stalked, in fact, a multitude of dreams. And these - the dreams - writhed in and about, taking hue from the rooms, and causing the wild music of the orchestra to seem the echo of their steps.

Edgar Allan Poe

I love the harsh angles in your style and the details you used to convey the grotesqueness in their behavior. It's interesting to see how many bodies blend into one another. Very well done.
