This photo was a lot of things before it was this.
First it was a regular skull replacing my head, with the intention of adding fire (the original inspiration came from those Ghost Rider movies. awful movies, but the visuals!). That looked beyond dumb, so i trashed the flames and kept the skull. Then i thought it needed something, so i added horns to the skull (Loki style ones). That helped, but it was still garbage as a photo as a whole. So i went hunting for different ideas, and I came across this ram skull stock on DA, and figured I'd give it a shot.

stocks used:
back bone: [link]
skull: [link]

the rest of it is my own resources, and i'm the model.

This is wonderfully realistic in its seamlessness. Especially in the spine area. :)

Thank you! I put a lot of effort into trying to make it look realistic. One of the hardest parts of photomanipulation, and I really want to master it.

You're welcome! Photomanipulation really rewards you only through unbelievably hard work. :)

that ram skull looks heavy to wear. im surprised you didn't break something cause that must weigh a ton! or was this part of the photomanipulation? im confused! anyway i love the photo!

oh no, haha, adding the skull was the manipulation. :) That thing would weigh a ton, yeah!
