No, TBH it's simply too morbid for my tastes. One of the few Horkey images I just really don't care for (and that has nothing to do with the excellent craftsmanship of the piece).
This is exactly the reason I passed, I showed it to my fiance and she said you're not really gonna hang that in the house are you?

If you put a dot on the bird's eye, it won't be morbid anymore. Whenever I get designs from some artists, I sometimes delete the pupil to make stuff look dead or evil.
The image and the thought of encountering something similar in real life just kinda makes me a bit uneasy. It's great work and I certainly am not looking to turn anyone off to it, it's just not for me.

I'm totally waiting to see what everyone else did before I frame mine. Going to stray from my standard "thick black frame" for this one.

This whole post belongs on a cuckolding forum.

PS - very excited to see this.
Something about this thread just does it for me.

I think there was one posted in the framed Horkey thread recently. I should have mine framed and ready to share by the end of the year or very early in the new year.

What matting/frame are you going with? I have a framing appointment coming up and I'm having a hard time deciding on an idea.
