Ray has four arms (vinyl)

#1

I was admiring the record sleeves art yesterday and noticed that on the back Ray has four arms?

Was this a mistake or was it left in intentionally?

I hadn’t consciously realized the record sleeve was completely different than my CD cover. :slight_smile:

It’s different (without two separate poses juxtapoxed) in the press kit:

Totally understandable. TWP is a digital world, and the vinyl soundtrack is analog. The conversion from digital to analog can never be perfect, and things like this tend to happen.

It is a superposition of smoking and non-smoking Ray.
Unless it has some really deeper meaning, I’d say it is unintentional and the wrong Photoshop file - with all layers visible- was taken.

Or she’s just an Alien.

I like this explanation

It’s a captured flicker that offers us a two-dimensional glimpse between parallel iterations of the program. If you look closely you can also see Ray in other positions, including squatting down, stretching, and throwing up. These must only occur in a handful of iterations, so they are very faint and hard to spot without sufficient imagination.

The more interesting question is: Where is the right arm of Reyes? :thinking:

In his pocket. (It’s a P&C adventure after all!)

I haven’t noticed it before, that’s awesome!

Seems like somebody left one layer too much on visible.
