I created this work for an art class I took at Cal State Hayward. The main idea of the project was to create a piece that was inspired by another artist. In this case, I used H.R. Giger as my inspiration, a very surrealistic look, just what Giger is famous for. For more information on Giger, visit his official website: http://hrgiger.com
I used an odd texture in the background, covered it in the plastic wrap filter and made some more adjustments to make it look wet or like some sort of gooey substance. The face in the upper right corner is me, as well as the body in the middle of the picture. There's another picture of me in an orb on the upper left side.
