Cool to be 2nd and 4th in 2 consecutive challenges :)

It was the challenge I suggested and I'm happy I got my first HM here.

I had seen something similar (but it was a drawing!) and I thought that the basic idea could fit this challenge. I love Megadeth. I saw them in Rome for the first time in '96, when I was 20 years old :)

I submitted the image 3 minutes before deadline after working consecutively 9 hours on that (and here it was 6 a.m.). I've done that for my team, even if my baloon entry was doing very good. I hoped this could do better than that, but considering Christophe's score, it was impossible... hehe!

My teammates have been my 'engine' - without them this effort wouldn't be impossible - love you guys!

Hahaha! Don't worry, we were in my house and he had his pants on (I cloned them out afterwards).

ETA: the guy in the picture is Riccardo, who had the role of the grim reaper in my "Dawn of the dead"

Listening now. Like the song for what it is. So courageous. Trying to relate the image. Another species of life form disappears from the planet. Yup. Nowhere to run. Here we are. Excellent rendition. Great job.

Heh, nicely done. I love how the computer user is more hunched over than the neanderthal.
