This is not a double exposure. I inserted the eyes into the mask and gave them a twirl, lol. I then printed it on acetate and played opaquing the rear to let flesh tones show at the right places. Slight amount of cloning to make the perfect fit.

Okay I don't have the slightest idea how you pulled this one off but I see it's validated and all.. looking into "How'd they do that?". :-) 8.

Don't know which photographer this is a tribute to, but this is a very fascinating photo. Very good tones. I am very curious to read the photographers comments on this one. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I love the image portrayed in this, I'm just not sure it meets the advanced editing rules with the addition of a major piece created? If so, brilliant!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/26/2006 08:38:47 AM
This can only be Graphicfunk. No one else has such a good sense for the surreal and presents it so matter of factly. An excellent tribute. 10

WOW! This is cool! Love this. One of my top picks ;)

01/25/2006 07:34:41 PM
Damn that's a great shot Graphicfunk!
I had a similar idea a while back with different electronic components exposed under the skin and stuff, but never thought I could pull it off. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 04:20:17 PM
Iteresting Idea that is well exicuted. Great toning and exposure! Tack sharp..Great job! I do wonder if the button in the middle would be considered a distractive element. Im on the fence with that one...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 10:39:44 AM
Definitely looks graphic-funk-ish! Very impressive, as always.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/25/2006 10:09:45 AM
Great picture. Love the execution. Will not count off for it, but i believe a more definite edge around the "face" would be more effective. but this does not take away from this wonderful image. great job. 8
