Anatomy of Change

ITS FINALLY DONE!!! -dies- Sooooo, after about ...3 weeks of working on this, on and off, this is the end result. Im quite proud of it considering i did the burned part and the Phrenology skull from memory.

I also changed the title compared to the WIPs because i wanted something a little more ..deep? But Idk if you can read the skull or not. This is my favorite piece to date.

In case you were wondering this is an actual person, His name is Rick Genest AKA Rico AKA Zombie Boy. You may have seen him in Lady Gaga's Born This Way video? No? Just me?....:iconokfaceplz:

If you wanna see my inspiration for this piece, check out this video.…

Supplies: Tissues, blending stumps, 2b-8b pencils.
total time: 40 hrs.. or somewhere around there.

EDIT: Replaced with bigger, better Quality file.

RIP Rick Genest. Hearing of his passing today inspired me to go through my Lady Gaga favorites folder on dA, and I knew I had at least 1 Rick piece in that folder. It's a beautiful rendition and sadly now a touching tribute.
