Honestly, it was refreshing to return to the technique of completely covering my face, just like I used to.

Blog entry here!

Self Portrait.

This took many hours to create. All done by hand, no photoshop cloning required.

Star Trek meets Farscape! What inspires your facial creations?. Is it a combination of experiences or a singular idea. Thank you for sharing. Cheers. +fav :happybounce: Nod

Its mainly just an escape from what is going on in my mind at the time. I pinpoint a thought that is taking over and then attach textures that I feel suit

Cool. That creative process is very similar to a filmmaker/director named Steven Soderberg:D (Big Grin) . Thanks for taking the time to share your ideas and thoughts. Cheers. Hug

On a site with so many artists, it's hard to be original, but you do a great job! I've never seen work like yours.

Hey. I think there are a lot of very individual artists on dA - I'm not sure I am one of them but us deviants all certainly still take influences from each other :)

I didn't mean there weren't, it's just hard to come up with ideas that no one else has. Of course skill and style differentiate artists, but I still find lots of conceptually similar art. As you said, lots of deviants influence each other- it's usually easier to tell where inspiration came from. I've found many beautiful body art photos, but none that use the same medium(s) as you. Sorry if it sounded like a put down in any way!

You are most probably correct, it is a little mad. Mostly because I sharpened all the pencils by hand to do this.

Most of the things I stick to my face feel strange.

and yes, I like to try to create strange things that might be otherwise v simple in Photoshop!

haha, i guess i would imagine it would feel strange.
i always love to see images that are fully real, you know? then there's the added effect of "how did they do that?!". i love your work, it's really inspiring.
