I have many hours invested in this piece. Tue, 07 Aug 2012 02:08:36 -0400 Twist Teal Wire <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />One of my more simple carvings. Tue, 07 Aug 2012 02:08:32 -0400 Cultivated <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />This is a project I have wanted to do for a very long time. I have been working to build the Photo Manipulation and Illustration portion of my portfolio, so I challenged myself and only used stock for the background image. All of the texture/shading and manipulation on the model was done by me. Thanks to my model: Bobby Foreman Thanks to unsmith from Deviant Art for the Martian Landscape:§ion=&q=martian+landscape#/dplaql Thanks to Bull53Y3 from Deviant Art for the planet textures: Thanks to Redheadstock from Deviant Art for the light beam brushes: Sat, 16 Jun 2012 17:49:33 -0400 A Different Kind of Marilyn <a href=""><img src="" /></a><br />I did this piece for my Art History class. I was inspired by Andy Warhol's Marilyn Monroe pieces and wanted to put a new twist on it by using Marilyn Manson as a model and keeping a toned down saturation. I didn't want to get rid of Manson's Gothic eccentricities completely.

Sometimes they become so overwhelming that they become toxic.
