Awesome image!
The wonderful mix of carefully laid out experiments and objects scattered on worktables and shelves makes me think of my minecraft bases, in a good way. I play with a lot of machinery mods, and I always end up frankensteining my nice little house into something like the above image and its predecessor. So thumbsup on making this feel like a mad scientist's den, from a wanna-be mad scientist. XD

Because I know that when people nitpick my best ones it can be a little disheartening/irritating but also extremely helpful, to be clear at the start, the piece is overall extremely well done, definitely DD worthy and one to be proud of! This is just me picking out the couple of minor flaws that keep it from perfection.

Here goes the nitpicking:
I'm bad about letting the perspective drift over the course of a piece myself, so I over-scrutinize the perspective on everything- the barrel in the foreground and the stairs really mess with me, because they don't sync up, but they should be viewed at about the same angle. Its the barrel thats off, judging by the rest of the room's perspective; it should be seen more from above.

The texturing, shading, and brushwork are exquisite. not much to dissect; the metal and stone are particularly well done! The only two things I can suggest here:

Do some material studies of wood and cloth, to get a better handle on partially reflective surfaces. this will up the realism to match your metal and stone...

and play more with atmospheric fog and local value adjustments, similar to what you did with the perfect green corona around the tank canceling out the color and value of the objects behind it, making it stand out. As an example of a place this can be useful, that perspective issue actually had me thinking at first that the stairs were a table for a while because without the right perspective cues, they look like they are all on the same level. Tweaking the highlights and shading to make it clearer that the slats of the staircase were on different levels would help with that.

Like I said, this is just me nitpicking on an excellent piece!

Once I saw the thumbnail of this I thought "woah" - But once I got to look of it, it felt like you've gone into detail way too quickly. You should have spend a lot more time on the drawing itself, before heading into colour and detail. The image does not seem well-constructed and the overall construction seems very sloppy, apart from the composition, which is very well done. The perspective is completely off - massively off. It doesn't even take a trained eye to see the perspective is off. I wish you had spend a lot more time training your perspective, constructing this iage as this piece would've been 10 times better if it was correct. Colours are great though, especially the light and how you treated the glass - but it is a great shame you didn't take the extra time in the pre-phase of this image, as it would've been a masterpiece, otherwise.

Very good work man this is really awesome i hope you work on more of this art man it seems like a cave of evil it's funny because i was thinking of something like this the skeleton was a great piece of this and the lab tools chemistry experiment it looks like your trying to bring back the dead like a friend or accomplished the lava experiment to be unstoppable what caught my eye was the fact that there is a cage in their for a bird though it's spooky it is one awesome piece keep working on stuff like this ~zero

This piece has an interesting effect on me. It makes use of a well balanced composition and crisp details in many places to maintain a suspension of disbelief. I can especially appreciate the texture of the walls, the quilt on the bed, the lamp and the cobwebs. There are a few things that throw me off though. For example, the candles and the tea set on the bed. They look recently cleaned and balanced almost perfectly straight up and down on the bed. Judging from everything else in the scene (aside from the skeleton, I'll get to that) I thought this was an ancient basement, but those objects confuse me in the context of the rest of the image.

Anatomically I do not find the skeleton very convincing, then again I couldn't even begin to draw any of this. Why are his/her legs only bone and his arms still look preserved? I understand the level of decomposition resulting from whatever substance he/she is in may not be completely homogenous (lower surface area on the chest?), but it just looks a little funny. Regardless, if you choose to put a focus on something in your scene, you might as well choose a stronger element (not meant to be derogatory). The reflections on everything and the eerie light to the entire scene are exceptionally planned out and consistent, which is one of the major reasons this image is especially compelling.
Like I said before, I am not yet capable of rendering anything of this quality, so call me a hypocrite if you like. These finer elements of art are things that myself and everyone else in the community are working toward improving. You are well on your way to a very successful career via this kind of work, should that be your ultimate goal- and thank you for giving me the opportunity to reflect on this, as it has helped me enormously in improving my own work.

Whoa. That's really all I can say. How did you do this? It is really like nothing I have ever seen before. It's extremely original and creative. You should be a proffesional artist if you're not already. The skeleton in the glass tube is very realsitic and so are the other objects in the room. It also has character(The room). Again, HOW did you so this. I also love the teaset and the birdcage. <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> Overall, outstanding job. This is honestly one of the best pieces ever on Deviantart. I am definately going to see the rest of your wonderful work.

My dear you shouldn't write the critique  about something you don't know or  understand. You even don't do the photomanipulation, how you can possibly make the critics about something you have no a clue. Btw it wasn't even a critique but a comment, critiques should be thoughtful, you can read about this in general rules of Deviantart.

Этот парень слишком долго пробыл в стасисе. Судя по состоянию тканей, вода должна быть более чем мутной, там чуть ли не куски должны плавать.
