What a great thread, process and artwork. Machineflesh was so massive I completely missed this piece, and I thought I saw everything. I have to say I wish you had drawn the eyeballs looking in a different direction, not because she's creeping me out but because it might suggest her thinking or scheming or afraid of something. The way it is she looks dead and scary but there's not as much psychological stuff going on as there might be. Anyway, just .5 cents.

I have no critiques. I enjoyed the process very much. I also like the idea behind the project (creepy). Thanks posting.

Great job man. It's a very nicely balanced image, ...it looks great, both up close, and reduced size. I like that the skin has a feeling of translucency, the veins are cool,...the fine wrinkling is great. I kind of wish I had completed my own entry, but as I progressed through the various stages of completion, I got the distict impression, that simple cyborg busts were not going to be well recieved, so I halted progress just before the final coloring. Now I think maybe I should have gone ahead with it. Oh well next time I will know better than to listen to others. Anyway it's nice to see that somebody did well with a bust. Cheers.

This is by far, one of the best of the Machineflesh entries. The texture, color and lighting are all spot on. Congrats on a job well done.

You should always go with your own instinct. If you are passionate about doing something and nobody gets it.. oh well. It is your personal discoverery and making mistakes is worth the experience.

shawn,

first, i must say this piece is fascinating. flawlessly (if not obsessively) rendered. great concept. in fact, i was thinking how cool a short film this would make. with attractive humans afraid to show their faces in public for fear of having them ripped off by robots. so most people wear hoods or scarves to cover their faces.

but the real reason i am writing this is a question. i looked through the in-progress stuff (so great that you posted that, by the way. my favorite thing is seeing how somebody arrived at an image) and i noticed your color palette setup in PS. how did you organize the colors so well, and with little dividers of black? any time i bring in custom color palettes, they arrive in a jumbled mess..

any way, great work. im going to serach this site for more by you.

You have to create the palette in PS. I have never brought in color palettes from other apps. So I am not sure what the deal is with that. Also, PS 5 is the the best version for creating custom PS color palettes. It is just drag and drop..and you can reorganize it freely by dragging swatches to new positions. Definetly, worth keeping a PS copy around. I have not tried CS yet, so maybe it has been fixed... but for now. Just create a color in the toolbar color picker and move your cursor over an empty swatch ..and the bucket will appear for a dump. Dump it and skip the name window. As for the black spacers...I just make them individually.... and thanks for asking!

wow! fasted reply ever. thanks man.

well i havent imported palettes from other apps, but i like to make a palette out of a scanned painting, or reference photo. so i usually turn it into a gif with a limited number of colors, and then save that color table as a photoshop palette. but i didnt think you could drag the swatches around. i just tried it, and it works in CS if you use the 'preset manager' tab from the color palette. so thanks!

I chipped at it slowly for the challenge.. but actual paint time once I liked a drawing .....hard to say, I worked on it for 3-4 weeks 2-3 hours a week night and 10-15 hours over the weekends.

i like it .how long did you finish it?
