I just keep hearing Metallica's song saying:
"Face The Thing That Should Not Be!" whenever I look at this picture.

This is great! I love it! :)
Good job!

This is my favourite of the lot. the light around the beasts head and all those micro-chippy textures in him and the background seem so ethereal, even if they do come from something man made.

May I offer an opinion on your lighting of the girl? the rest of the picture give the idea of a very dark room, but she seems very light, as though she were standing in sunshine. She conflicting with the idea of light coming from the beast's face. Was that intentional?

well I lit up the front of her body as much as I could to match the light from the things head. It's oils so its hard to get really light when it keeps mixing in with the rest of the color. so I left it how it is. I guess it's intentional, but also unintentional lol, I dunnoXD

This could be the cover of a fantasy oder scifi novel... Lost in virtual reality...
The girl could say: "Well, how the hell do I get back...?" And in the end it's always: "There's no place like home..." Very inspiring!^^

The face kind of reminds me of like when bad horror movie villains wear masks that are kind of cheery- Like, it's got a smile, but it's all sinister.

I really love the symbolism, how technology is depicted like a GIANT BEAST OF DOOM.
And all the circuitboardlooking designs work really well for this too. o:
