I'm voting without comparing to the original

I like this a lot. The geometric patterns appeal to me, but then so does the emotion - struggling to break in (or out).

I love the shapes here. Kudos to blind justice for originating this, but you get credit for the disciplined but mad shape of it.

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

One of my favorite Mark Twain short stories...but I digress. Love the eerieness that this captures. I originally did not like that most of the body is not there. The fact that the figure seems to emerge from the hard edge of the window partitions makes me think it is emerging from nothingness and into being. Or....or...another way to look at it, this mysterious stranger at the door is trying to 'hold' on to reality. Grip the walls of solid matter as it struggles to not vanish into the light and into nothingness.

Very faithful recreation. I can't decide if the straight on angle is better than the original, angled capture.

Excellent re-creation. Part of the fun of viewing this is to immediately recognize where the inspiration came from.
