what a day of contrasts. I start the day with cute cows and space aliens, and end the day with zombie baby puppet master things. Even I'm starting to worry about myself....

5 hours work from start to finish in one session. The doll mask (the left side of the face) was the inspiration. I am afraid I cheated the background wall to save time (frankly I couldn't be arsed) and used a bit of stock from stk-xchg and just tiled it for convenience. There are also some of my standard textures in there to give my usual nasty skin look.The hands and feet gave me a particularily nasty time, but by far the hardest part was the puppet... string is so FRICKING HARD to do okthx.

This is 99% what i had in my head, so I'm pretty pleased I could get the image down almost as I wanted. Five hours could probably be considered a speed paint...

Love this piece. Can I ask what the size is of this painting and how you got such a great pic onto the computer to upload? I have paintings that are too big for my scanner.
