"Ever had the feeling you've been here before?
Drinking down the poison the way you were taught
Every thought from here on in your life begins and all you knew was wrong?"

Arriving somewhere but not here
by PORCUPINE TREE

Another book cover for Polish publisher "Fabryka Slow"
And yeah adding quotes to an image is a bit corny but I like It. I usually have one song that I listen the most during picture painting and I though its kinda cool to mention it as in my head its completing the image

Any comments most welcome

some times you wake, and wish you had kept dreaming... and sometimes you can't run away from this world fast enough.

i wonder if the world is a nightmare or i am caught in one.

Looks like a scene from the book "Otherland". In that scene people fight in cyberspace to free real friends that can not escape from that virtual reality... Actually even the woman in the tank can not leave cyberspace anymore.

If you think you want to read the books, only read the "Books" section here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otherlan… - otherwise you'll read major spoilers. Part of the story is that the reader as well as the figures have no clue what's happening and why - knowledge comes in small portions. You'll only really understand when you have read the last book.
Ahem ... I'm not advertising, just a big fan.

Anyhow, great picture!

Oh wow, and here I was, thinking this is a fanart for Ghost in the Shell. For which book is it? I'm Polish, so I may read it, the topics presented on this cover peaked my interest :-)

When i look at this picture i think of the book i once read called "Game slaves" by Skinner, Gard. It is really cool and amazing detail. Wish i could do stuff like this but either i dont have the time or the patience so ill just stick with what i do. :P. In other words, how do you have the time to do this!?

Damn, yeah I've been there, realizing that everything you've ever known is completely wrong is one hardcore kind of trauma. The subconscious mind's natural reaction to this trauma is starting over by creating a new personality (in essence, this trauma is very likely to cause multiple personality disorder, it did with me). Another personality is the only direction you can run towards when your own mind has become your living hell, and if you don't run, you will just break. Bye bye mental-health, for life.

10 years, and although I was lucky beyond measure and got my MPD successfully treated with hypnotherapy 5 years ago. I only ended up realizing that without my multiple personality disorder I am not functioning as well as I did with it. It was actually the only thing that held me together, now that it's gone I've already been in free-fall since the moment it was treated, and it took me this long to realize that there's nothing I can do about it :saddummy:

Learning that you've lived your entire life making decisions based on knowledge that was completely wrong, it hits you harder than any truck or train ever could, I wish I had just been hit by a truck instead.

I don't mind  the quotes.  It helps me write a mental story to relate the title to the image.  I like to imagine not just what is going on but what led up to that moment.  BTW the picture is very well done, particularly the texturing.

Totally the major from ghost in the shell. Is that where you got the inspiration? She wears a "headset" that's exactly like that in some of the episodes.

this is very reminiscent of Ghost in the Shell. It reminds me of Inspector Kusanagi from the franchise to be exact. If I didn't know any better I'd say this was your own re-imagining. Great job.
