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 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..... :-) 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!
