I've been wanting to do this picture for awhile now and was happy when the challenge came up. All stuff from around the house. Old computer parts, vacuum cleaner hose, heating oil tank...the lungs idea came while eating Chinese food, l though the bag would be perfect!.. :-)
Very fun challenge

Cool idea. While it's probably funnier the way you did it you probably lost a lot of points by not pulling off the actual illusion (i.e. his insides appear on the outside and not inside his chest cavity). If you really wanted to accomplish that then look no further than the opening of your nostril. It shows everything you need to do to pull off the illusion of depth.

I just love when we get an idea and are able to execute it this well. Kudos on the plastic bag lungs. Wonderful homage to Mr. Da Vinci.

Very creative! Never would have thought of plastic bags as lungs. Realistic even.

Plastic bag lungs LOL! Such creative recycling. And plumbing fixtures, and ... I don't even know what all the digestive system is composed of. Very entertaining :-)
