    you may want to post a slightly smaller version... some of our screens arent quite big enough to see the whole thing at once. but as i already told you, it looks good!

    Creating any new thread is a game of roulette on whether you get comments or not so don't take it personally.

    My initial thought was "oh man, fungi!" I love all of your processing EXCEPT the kind of greeny-blue hue between the deep shadows and the lit part of your face. My eyes kind of get stuck there. Otherwise looks good and very 'creepy' :)

    To get lots of comments and folks looking at you pic, you need to put something about porn in the title, seems to work for some here LOL

    I'm with Brittany on this one: I do like how you make your eyes shine, and I like the harsh shadows, but I am not fond of the colouring of your skin, least of all where light meets shadow. "Funghi" is a nice word ... "mildew/mould" springs to mind, too. :oops:

    Nice cross-processing. Reminds me of x-files, except where are the aliens?

    I really like where the light hits your face and neck, I don't mind the alternative colouring; what I'm not favouring is the white background.. I think it would be a little more intriguing with a black\darker background. Normally I like white but it's just not working for me?
