I love the hair and the textures used.
However, this looks like Angelina Jolie?
Am I correct? o.o

Now that is clever. Very skilfully done, this. I have to shout my praises on the spectacular skin-texture of the piece - a great idea masterfully implemented.
Great work!

A good use of texture and colors, but I feel the texture on her upper body is a bit to small compared to the ones used in her face. :)

Kick-ass manipulation. I guess this could have been in the "Photomanipulation > People" -category too, but I think it's OK this way. :nod:

First of all, the texture is awesome. I've been working a lot with textures and texturing, so I can say this hasn't been very easy and fast layer to apply on her. You've done some amazing transforming in the left corner. That has taken a few moments I guess ;)

The overal look of this piece is amazing. The red eyes make a good contrast difference with the rest of her saturated body and hair. You've layed the crackings well too, there's no bad spots at all. What about the places where the hair starts to grow? Have you done something to them? They look pretty neat. :)

VERY nice job. I wish people would do more manipulations like this. I'm loving it. :heart:

Thanks man! Comments like this makes it all worthwhile :-)

About the hair: yeah - as with everything else in this piece, I've spent quite some time getting it right, and the way I made the hair looks like it grows out of her skull is one of my favourite things about this piece as well

Ahh - fellow Scandinavian I see! Have a ball up there in Finland!

Yeah collab could be fun. I'm always incredibly busy, so it would probably have to be over a longer span of time, but feel free to suggest anything if you get an idea at some time

Quite the eye catching piece here. I love best here the work you’ve put into merging the face with the “hair”, the join between them is utterly convincing. Perhaps on the left of the forehead you lose it a little but everywhere else it’s brilliant. It does indeed look like a mask as someone has already said, with the hair fed through holes in it. It’s certainly very cool.

The textures on the face are well applied too although perhaps (again as someone has already said) you need to make them follow the curve of the face more effectively. This is particularly noticeable on the sides of her cheek and across her shoulders. I have no exact idea as to how you’d curve them but perhaps experimenting with a highly feathered lasso and then using a spherize or pinch filter might work. I’d also say that perhaps the texture gets a bit much in some areas especially as the whole work is so textured what with the complicated knots of her hair – some areas of stillness would perhaps add to this image. I also think that the cracked texture applied to the face shouldn’t move so exactly onto her lips, perhaps a smaller version of the same texture like what’s on the shoulder instead? The colour of her lips seems a little odd too as there isn’t anything that really matches their colour elsewhere in the image – there’s a slight pinkishness to them while the rest of the image is blue/grey.

Anyway, I think this is great work. No icicles for the winter version though!?! :shocked:

;P
