Piece of Muppet by ~soul71. This artist only has 10 images in his gallery, but they are all awesome. I love this one because it combines the Muppets and Iron Maiden in such a wicked way. ( Suggested by Aeires and Featured by fourteenthstar )

Hello
I play in a local rock band. Animal has always been my inspiration and after seeing your artwork combining animal with iron maiden piece of mind, is just awesome! I would like to have this printed on a bass drum skin on my kit. I would like to have do this with your permission.

i kind of just kept stareing at this one. i don't know why. it wasn't mindless either...like just really deep in thought. mostly about why he's there, or how they even got him in there, and why keep him alive? i wondered about his clothing, like how much did he fidgeted around to get all those rips?

nothing really to reply too, just leting you know people are thinking. (ps, i figured out it was inspired by an album cover so i know it's not all you that made me think.)

Mrkillzo,

That's great to hear. Those are exactly the things I thought about when I was painting that. The original artist, Derek Riggs, puts so much story into his images that it makes you get lost in the scene. That's what art is all about.
