What makes an illustration good? Is it the style? Is is the theme? Or is it the product of a whole set of qualities and feelings put into the canvas? Probably the last. Probably none. Probably you.

Ok, I'm just kidding. Whenever I post surreal illustrations I tend to write crazy things... but none of this makes the work of Ryohei Hase, a Japanese illustrator, less astonishing. These are some crazy, well detailed, BIG images. Here are some samples of his work, but I truly recommend you to check out these in his DeviantART gallery for full-sized glory. Go ahead, just click the images. These would definitely be great as wallpapers in my desktop. I wish Ryohei would release some wallpaper versions of these. Anyways, I hope you enjoy these as much as I did. Cheers! ;)
