Wireless Connection by Cado Wireless Connection by Cado
You guys must be tired of seeing my face over and over again in my photomanipulations, hehe. But the thing is, once I get an idea, it's pretty damn impossible to find a stock image that is EXACTLY what I need. So you'll have to do with me! Now as a cyborg - taking over your local neighbourhood, and generally messing with your head.

I apologize for the watermark, but I don't like the idea of people stealing my face. It's already happened with my Kitty Hood pictures, or so I've been told.

This barely even looks like me anymore, but regardless of that, please keep pervy comments to yourself.

---

Media: Photo taken by me, of myself, Photoshop 8.0 and a Wacom Tablet.
Music listened to: "Take Me Into Your Skin" by Trentemoller. Fitting song, now that I think of it. Go listen to it! It's the most soothing music I've heard in a long time.
Time taken: Too long. x) But I'm iffy about details, so it always takes longer than it should. I also put a lot of general painting in this as usual.
Stock used:
Connections by ~Pax-Caryatid
Down the Tubes by ~neubie
Gears by ~stocked

Last but not least, a big thank you to the stock artists that make life easier for the rest of us. :heart:

Edit: Added more skin to the neck area.

No perving here. I like the way you did the neck and the jacked in cables and the pose is interesting.

well,you a robot,right.are u a robot when u been modified,surgery or upgrade from human to robot,cyborg or android?

Cado Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's an interesting question: if we consider surgery, when does robot replace your humanity? When are you considered a "thing" and no longer a person?

Personally, I'd consider anything that used to be human, still human, however little remained. Humanity lies in the mind, but of course if all that remained of your old body was its functions, not the thoughts and personality, then... I guess you could be considered a robot. My idea of a robot is something that acts based on predefined guidelines and not subjective thought.

Well, I chose myself. x) I could only get that exact pose by just doing it myself! I wish I had more models though. It's fun photomanipping yourself, but in the long run, it may get a bit boring (at least for me).
