Quite freaky this is...
Reminds me of the time I threw a piece of tripe outside and some ants made a colony in it...

How did you do it? Lotsa clone tool? Or did you in fact paint his (w)hole face, added shados and all, and then finally painted/pasted the wholes?

I need to knoooow :D

it was very very simple....
the head is me!!!!! :-) i covered myself with clay...and photographed me...
then i made a plaster cast where i dug various holes in it and photographed them...in order to get the light correct...hence the real feel to it....
in photoshop i cloned/erased any remains of my face and then worked in the holes! and voila.....
actually is one of the simplest photoshop wise images i have made..... :-)

there.....now you know....

ohh, so that was actually genuine hard work.. God damn you! :D I had hoped a photo like that could be brought to life through photoshop. :D Nevertheless, thank you for taking the time to fill me in. ;)

after looking at your avatar I noticed this in your gallery. I think the symbol and the use of the black hole in the mans head is such a great fun little thing. great job making them each unique and different!

Funny how your comment is so far off from what I imagined to go along with this piece. Just goes to show, people will run wild with their own stories when you show them something, and that's how it should be :)

A very inspiring piece!
