Hello from the Critique club

An interesting image that meets the challenge well.

I'm afraid your Clockwork Orange visual reference is lost on me but it certainly resonated with one of your commenters so well done, it obviously worked! I love the low key approach and the way the detail bleeds into the dark background, this together with the shaded, invisible eyes fulfils the challenge brief fully. You have done a great job with the lighting, just enough to bring out essential detail without spoiling the low key effect.

A great job that has been deservedly well received, I just hope I don't meet you up a dark alley!
