"Slow Poison" by Energetic-Innovation "Slow Poison" by Energetic-Innovation
Finally, after a week of nothing, I'm back submitting stuff.

I wanted to make a second entry for =freaky665's "Dark Feelings Contest" and honestly this was not what I had in mind initially. Still, I wanted to do a somewhat different take on the theme than what I'd previously submitted.

I can't offer a neat explanation of it because I sort of didn't plan any of it, it just came together. I guess it's a reflection of my current state of mind: Fear of losing a loved one, fear of losing my future, fear that I'm losing myself, and who I am. It's the best I can do by way of explaining this.

Interesting concept, I love how it just seems to be corroding.

Love it. I thought at first that you were using an image of a seashell, or something coral-like. Now, I can see what looks like a skull.

I'm wondering how much of the face was done with other images and how much was done by you with brushes/dodging/burning (whatever your technique might be). ?

Well, I don't remember the entire process step by step, but I can say that the face was the result of a lot of texture laying and layer effects, combined with use of the liquidify filter and copying and repasting parts of the "face". I only used a couple of brushes and that was pretty much after the fact: The face is all textures, no brushes.

Um, hope that helps a little. :lol:
