  • Title: The Headless Biker
  • Artist: tsl3161991
  • Description: According to an urban legend, there was once a man who was riding his motorcycle behind a truck carrying sheets of metal. He decided to try to pass the truck, but as he was doing so, a sheet of metal fell off the truck and decapitated him. However, despite losing his head, the biker's dead body kept the bike balanced as it passed the truck. The truck driver saw the headless biker pass him, giving him a fatal heart attack.

  • No really. Not all urban legends are found across cultures. Hence the term URBAN legend itself. So something for everyone to note before and especially now.

  • This actually is a pretty well-known urban legend. His description is accurate to the original story, and his depiction is nice. 4/5

  • No a ref would have been somewhat helpful. Yes its a urban legends but even a fanart piece would have been nice. Since this more than likely based on an update version of the headless rider.

  • A reference image wouldn't prove that he didn't make it up, at some level you just have to either trust the description or take the time to investigate yourself.

    As to using a reference image, I'm not saying it would hurt, but isn't just picking which ever reference you like the most the equivalent of choosing fanart for your reference pick? It'll give people an idea but it's not really a legitimate reference, it's just someone's interpretation of the character.

  • If there can be different interpretations, a reference should've been attached of a specific one, or else this will just confuse people. I've never heard of this "legend", so without a reference, it all sounds like something you made up.

  • I think you're in the right arena, technically urban legends constitute "well-known characters" and there are many different interpretations, so I'm not sure a reference image is needed either (this is a rare case).

    With that being said, the bike has a very "futuristic" feel to it, and I'm not sure it captures the feeling of the urban myth.
