Skin Deep

------------FULL VIEW PLEASE-----------

The latest issue of ImagineFX magazine is out on the 12th here in the UK and a week or so after that in the rest of the world. I created this image and a complete workshop on how i went about it including a 25 minute recording of myself painted it from start to finish (obviously speeded up!) you can find that on the DVD.
This image is about the fragility of beauty and how nothing lasts, the roses growing from her skin are a metaphore for this.
