Forced Serenity- Version 2 by lithriel Forced Serenity- Version 2 by lithriel
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.

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.

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!

This has something eerily haunting to it.
Maybe it's the tech forced onto the skull. Or the expression. Or the title.
Anyway, the composition of it is great!

I know it wasn't intentional, but it's really hard not to see Natalie in those lips, eyes, and bone structure.
Regardless, absolutely gorgeous. The wires going into the forehead are extremely creepy - love it!

Well, they are the faces we're familiar with! And there is a resemblance between the two, although WOW, that is a strong jaw. Looks like you took some of the emphasis off of it and raised the eyes a bit, which is probably how it ended up more Portman-esque in my eyes. In any case, please don't take it as a criticism!
