I wanted to create an image that was a blend of emotions, enjoy :)
Yay! My quota maximum finally reached its 24 hour mark and I was able to get those links to the other images used.

This is a bit of an understated one -- I wanted to keep as much of the feel of the original scene as possible, while making the face even more recognizable as a face.
The "story" running through my head while making this involves the stone giant eating passerby and, each time, experiencing regret and weeping its victim's blood.
Easter egg: find the skull...
Only used 3 outside sources, referenced below.
I'm a bit of a Bézier curve junkie so there was a fair amount of clipping and masking, along with some pixel-by-pixel touch-ups on the desert brush by the rock.
Thanks to Lip Kee for the vulture, Sam Felder for the sand, and Eris for the skull.
Please let me know your thoughts! Thanks! (5 years and 1751 days ago)
