This has a very Lovecraftian vibe to it, like it's a figment of cosmic horror, but related to technology. I say that because I've recently been on a Cthulhu-Mythos kick recently, learning about the various awesomely vile monsters and figures from Lovecraft and other contributors to the twisted fictional world. I feel like this image fits very well with that whole concept.
As far as the actual drawing aspect of it, I can really say that the shading and line-work adds an almost wood-cuttery feeling to the piece, which only adds to the organic nature of the creature. Definitely well deserving of the front page.
