    These are so cool..... you did great with special effects.... what did you use for the blue-ish tint all over your skin?..... looks very effective, blood looks good too. I think the angle of the second is a good choice, and the crop in one works well, great attention to detail well done :thumbup:

    thankyou! yeh i spent AGES trying to used a blue colour brush etc.. then it hit me, lower the saturation!... not fully but enough and you get that effect(also may need to lighten afterwards).. then just just the darkening brush bit by bit to create the "mould".. the blood was more talent with the colour brush (which i have not much of lol so it took me a long long time to get it like that) and of course to finish it off.. move one of the pupils and it makes it look 10 times more lifeless!

    haha, wow! Those are awsome!!! Great debut to the darkside :fangs:

    I've been planning to do something similar to the first one for ages. There's someone at work who fits the bill perfectly but I'm afraid to ask her incase she thinks I'm a weirdo (she probably does anyway :lol:) Great work .... more!!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
