The Thing - both old and new are movies that I own and watch regularly. The horror of its alien complexity still gives me a feeling of fear and horror. Each time it shocks me when a character changes and out of their change emerges a lifeform of ancient beings whose DNA is filled with screaming and howling of pain. 
You have produced that feeling I have watching and waiting for the creatures to bond. 
Your colours rich and deadly, defined only by the shadows and tones of pure delight. 
I see your brush strokes  and perhaps a palette knife that have produced the fear you speak of in imagery only. 
I can see the melding of the faces, teeth that have yet to produce a maw larger than a mere human could. I can almost hear the tearing of skin and bone as the ancients fight for supremacy. 
It gives me questions that are unanswered........  Do both trachea blend and become one huge tube for the animal to breathe with adequacy in this barren freezing land ?
Are the ancients in pain also ?
Do the ancients through the ages of its lifetime also suffer the pains you reproduce here in this magnificent piece of Artwork?  It reminds me of Hieronymus Boschs "Garden of Earthly Delights" where terror and torture are represented in tiny form. 
When you were working on this piece, did you sit at  a mirror and twist and turn your head and neck to see how the anatomy would move through each part ? 
I think the human body is built for extremes and can cope with much strain.
I see so many muscles , tendons, cartilage coming into play and I see how you put together the two humans. 
WOW I'm totally inspired...............Kindness Mandy
