When I first saw this on someones favorite list, I imediately thought, "Pandoras Box". But the man in the top hat really takes away from that thought.
Anyway, it has a very macabre feel(of course) and a certain hopelessness to it; its sort of painful to look at(because of the feeling, not the quality of the art!).
Its a very interesting and thought-provoking piece, and very much worth a :fav+:.

Another really good piece but I think it would look better if all the little 'men' at the bottom either had the sharp teeth or no teeth at all.

I often derive inspiration from that very same soundtrack, it's great for setting an innocent/underlying madness type of mood for art, much like the books themselves (Lewis Caroll, we salute you) glad to see some great artwork from a common influence, keep it up!

Hmmm... Pandora's box maybe? This is really quite breathtaking. I love the shading work. This is definitely going into my favourites. It intrigues me... I'm often fascinated by death and frightening things lately. Maybe because I'm losing someone... or not. Sorry, I'm rambling. Keep up the good work :) (Smile) +fav

Asunder, you have once again outdone yourself!!! This is just completely amazing!!! I can't even begin to describe why I love this so much!

Btw - If you havn't played American McGee's Alice, you really should. Maybe it'd inspire you more!!!

I love this one,

Amongs your great works in the pack, this is one of my favorites. I love the composition, the characters (especially the screaming ones hehe) and the mood...

Only thing I don't really like is the "the gift" typo on top, but that's just me..

Great work
