CHRISTOS!! WTF..... my god man. Four months?!! Well... it was worth it. It's... wow. This must rank as the image that has made my jaw drop further than any other RR post before it, by you or anyone. A "mere" excellent seems not enough. You have captured not only the style of the master but also the feel: it's like he's inhabiting you...
My god man... (you I mean) hugs :-)

Words cannot express the brilliance in this piece- 4 months well spent. An image Dali would be proud of, great job Cneo!

So that's how he makes his paint. The title is fantastic, and the way you portrayed makes me ashamed of my own work.

This is rifriggindiculous! Awesome imagination you have, even if it is a direct influence. I love the cheese grader. Where did you get the creepy shot of Dali's face? I am gonna stop typing so that I can go back and look at this again.

Surely the best thing I have seen over here! I can't quit see where ZBrush ends and Photoshop starts and all, but every technical detail or question is ruled out by the sheer power of the image. Looks like you not only captured the spirit of Dali, but the deepest spirit of surrealism as well. X A Lent!

Can't get any better than this image... I love it when an artist dedicates such time to one piece... shows true dedication and passion... You have captured his true for and personality in this image... My upmost compliments to you my friend :) I'm gonna have to look into this ZBrush...

tx everyone. well, actually, RedudantlyAbundant, I did find a lot of shots of Dali's face in books and albums, and best of all was Dali's self-portrait on the bottom left of his painting "the Ecumenical Council" This last one, is the one I used most for reference.

Christos this is awsome ! It is incredible how you managed to get this face as it is. The angle and perspective of this picture is very powerful and it is all but usual. Excellent work !
