The Altering by wb-skinner The Altering by wb-skinner
The mind is a terrible thing to waste...


~~~~~

something a little ... well ok ... a lot different for me.

I'm just going to play around with a few conceptual styles ...

Only the second piece in my gallery which falls into the 'horror' category. I think it has some shock value, but I probably won't delve too deeply into the genre...

If you'd like, please have a gander at my mini-gallery devoted to Conceptual Portraits

Hay John, Grats on the DD. It's a wonder why they couldn't see the beauty the first time you posted this. You know, I think alot of your other images would do the same.

With the strained look and the shadows encroaching upon your face it could be a body-altering machine as well - visible physical effects of the altering! The tones and crisp texture of the background compliment the main subject really well.
