Love it. I've always wanted to do iconic images like this but I always end up doing something completely different...

Amazing. I love the wires and metal at the end of each stump that make the picture slightly creepy but ever more scifi. I love how shading on his muscles give his skin a flesh like, human look but you can see how different sections of his head and chest are in seperate parts like most electronical devices.

This is some cool stuff man..
Too bad about his lower body though; I can see how cybernetic arms could be "clicked" into the
remnants of his upper arms, though the tubes and all that seem to make it almost impossible for a
bottom part to be connected.
I do wonder how it gets around though...
Another cool thing is, that its face looks slightly feminine, but also male, and so does his torso look
male, which makes it a good resemblance to something that has no sex at all.
I'm pretty sure the band must be quite happy with this :)
