    I just love the backglass. Probably one of the most "erotic" ones I've seen, and I want to have it! I even considered getting a tattoo of it if I can't find the glass.

    Wow that is a badass backglass! I think this will be a new entry to my top 5 back glasses.

    I agree with Embryon, Spectrum, Fathom, and Gemini. I think Paragon is the most overrated artwork in the history of pinball. And I would like to add Genie, Big Game, and Centigrade 37 to the list.

    I just discovered another pin with cool artwork ... Game Plan's Andromeda:

    hmm For Me Xenon, Strange World, Iron Maiden (Stern) and Strikes and Spares.

    I like that Rally one pictured earlier, most impressive. Sexy European ones I like are Fantasy and Miss World.

    I have a Fantasy waiting in line to be fixed but it is rough.

    I am obsessed with the detail in Fathom's artwork. Also Gottlieb's The Hulk, love the crazy green and purple cabinet and the backglass transforms when lit. And of course Xenon, and AFM.

    I hope no one minds the necro bump but I'd love to hear more opinions about favorite backglasses. I love love love this Viper piece!

    I'm relatively new to pinball but so far I really enjoy, besides this viper,

    fathom
    paragon
    centaur
    xenon
    lost world
    addams family
    medieval madness
    bride of pinbot

    I'm sure there are many others but so far these ones I dig. I'm sure the TAF and MM ones are partly due to the machines as well but the art is great too.

    I own some Paul Faris originals but they are video game related (which I collect also) not pinball.

    Surprised to find a a very old thread with previous post of mine already on it! Still concur with what i put down before, but now realize that Roy Parker and Gordon Morison both lead gottlieb artists of the 50s, 60s, and 70s really can't be beat. These guys were lightyears ahead of everyone else at the time, and still even in the modern era it really never comes close, even when it is classically illustrated like Ghostbusters. I would kill for an El Dorado, Centigrade 37 or a Buckaroo. Greg freres also really nailed the cartoon pin style with Dr. Dude, Party Zone, Elvira, and Scared Stiff. And it goes without saying, but Whitewater has one of the best all around art and sound design packages from any era.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I do find that spinner thing kinda gets in the way on the scared stuff back glass, but I dig the playfield

    Quoted from HELLODEADCITY:

    I really digg George Molentin's work from the 50s
    Realistic yet sometimes dream like

    I'm with you on that. I have several of his works of art decorating up the place.
