When I was asked to do this cover, I knew what I wanted to be in it, just not the perfect way to present it. I've gone through tons of different ways to present the being that was to be the center point of the piece, but it finally came together when I re-introduced a person looking on in one of my earlier sketches and made him into a kid with a teddybear.

The teaser image took time, but this one was a beast of another caliber. As with the teaser, I did this in a redicilously large size, but realising that people would have a lot more insentive to get up close and scan for detail, I made sure every corner could be as detailed as a single painting.

The final strech of working on it took 31 hours, non stop work to complete. Even then, I have things I was considering adding at the end. All in all, I'm fairly happy with it. I'll let you interpret what it means on your own. (And we'll see how many spot the secrets this time around.)

- You are *Gold* : ) -
I need to say that this artwork is truly incredible! And 31 hours? I think that`s little time for something this astonnishing, you are truly talented! :D
It`s not wisible here, but I downloaded the 50mb ultra-high-res .png image, and I spottet a mistake right over the eye (orakel) watching down on the boy. It`s a line there in gray witch looks like you`ve drawn it by an accident. Are you aware of it? It`s not visible on the 1200x1200p version :)
you can't even tell if the boy faces you and grins devilishly or if he's just standing with his back to you...
I love how organic it looks! Awesome!

Beautifully done. Respect :)
Great job as usual but I have a few questions:
Is the "IOTUS : 1471" hinting one of the secrets?
Is the shape inside the triangle supposted to look like the mask when looking really close at it or is it just an optical illusion?
Is the teaser image the inside of this machinery?

Also, good job at making the eye in the center as mysterious as possible, only revealing that it actually looks at the viewer, not the child, upon looking really close at it. You, sir, are creepy ;)
I will reveal nothing.

But everything I've done, I've done intentionally.
u genius youuuu ^^ <3<4
