I was gonna talk a bit about the conception of the piece, but it's change a lot since my initial idea, so I'll try and keep it brief.

Do you realize that the image of Mickey is one of the two most reproduced in the world?
The other being the image of Jesus......strange, isn't it?

ones a work of fiction....the other is a mouse........oh.......Ha........just kidding....**nudge nudge**
yeah that was kind of tasteless...
but I did find a lot of similarities between them. I won't list those similarities cause I abandoned the idea all together.

The praying pose that I have now is a little left over religious bit that came from my original intention of crucifying Mickey on the Mickey Mouse Silhouette...

Well done! It's incredibly grotesque and eye-catching at the same time. I could not look away from it. And the details! Oooh! :XD:

There's something mystical about this- almost like a buddist' pose.

Of course, I'm listening to [link]

Great work :)

yeah initially it was meant to feel more 'Western',
but that wasn't working for me so I had to resort to the 'Eastern' feel.

That's actually a pretty cool song. I've never played Silent Hill myself though.
Sometimes I listen to some traditional Tibetian Monk chants...
