Forced Serenity- Version 2

I finished my changes to this picture just in time for the Expose 10 deadline!

You can find the original painting here- [link]

I wanted to push realism in this painting. The chip was mocked up in google sketchup which gives me black outlines only. The lighting on the chip was made up and I have to say, I am pretty impressed with myself. It's always good to push yourself to a new level. I think I achieved that here.

Photoshop CS4 / Google Sketchup / Cintique Tablet
No this was NOT referenced off of any celebrity nor was it meant to be a Star Trek reference. It's merely a cyborg. Thanks for looking!

Awesome stuff here. Very Borg and System Shock. :D

I love how you've got this beautiful woman and then there's this creepy, but still beautiful cyborg stuff going on with her.

That painting gives me really strange, disturbing feeling...

LOL Good thing you added the disclaimer. I was gonna ask if that was Natalie Portman. After all, she was bald in V for Vendetta if I'm not mistaken. This pic is so awesome. I love the detail. It's kinda creepy and alluring at the same time. Sorta like a Beauty and the Beast in the same person. Great job!
