    I recently finished a self portrait project where I wanted to experiment mixing medias, getting this result.

    I wrote up a summary on the making process, if interested, it can be found here

    What's distracting to me is the loss of detail at your belt buckle. Otherwise I think it's a cool concept.

    Very well composed and exposed, the only thing that I would comment negatively on is that placing a Canon camera inside you is some what materialistic/consumerist, it some what steps into the world of advertising as opposed to art.

    Hm, that's a good point. Think it would be better with like an old school canon instead?

    Not that I want to see a topless man, but I think this would have worked better shirtless, with the moved panels still resembling the area that was moved. Also, the anatomy portion looks too fake. Actual lungs and a trachea would have looked cool. I love the idea, and it looks like you did a good job with the original image.

    Maybe even instead of shirtless, you use a button-down shirt that you hold apart in the middle revealing your organs.
