Bangin' My Head by jaded-ink Bangin' My Head by jaded-ink
Killers Are Quiet
by Slipknot
Cycle of life and death supposedly
goes 'round and 'round yet it stops with me
Glorious hunter of my faith I have sinned
Killers are quiet like the the breath of the wind

Filling the shadows with forms of my own
Raised by kindred of Get I was born
Abomination world in disarray
Killers are quiet when they seek the vitae

Reflection beckons a portal shard
Spiritual quest I must stay in guard
Stepping sideways betweens worlds I shift
Killers are quiet when they are born with the gift

Beautiful Anguish cast out by my race
Now one that's Ageless I save my own face
I write my own laws with Death I break bread
Killers are quiet when they come from my head

more playing with skulls. man, i love it. and the texture i used on this one was fabulous, so thanks to :icongrandeombre-stock: for that. really put the finishing touches on my piece. :D

Model stock comes from flickr-Hannah Kate Photo was kind enough to have it up on CC.

I really like this piece. It has many beautiful details. However (This is just a personal opinion) I feel that the dark details on her arm/shoulder, makes it out of place. To me it just feels as if it doesn't belong there.

dark details on her arm/shoulder? you mean the tattoo?
yeah..that tattoo is on the model. i couldn't bring myself to remove it. honestly, i like leaving as much "real" as i can to the manipulations i do..it gives it more humanity.

thanks though!

Oh.. I didn't realise it was a tattoo. In that case I completely understand why you kept it there. My apologies :)

:faint: nothing less than superb? Ooooh dear. Thank you. Its likely my most popular piece to date. And I just got an email from the girl who's photo I used from flickr, hannah kate, and she just loves it. I couldn't ask for more. Its so flattering to have the model or the photographer (or one and the same) tell me they like what I do to their already amazing stuff.

Thank you again :heart:

I must ay you are a master of blending skulls. I think this one is my fave so far. I love the angle and the way her hair is blowing.

jaded-ink Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2011  Professional General Artist
i can't believe how popular this one is. :faint: and i'm happy you like it. I've got one of your stocks picked out to do something similar with, i'm just trying to find more skeleton pieces that are good. i want to start blending more bones and stuff so that i get that "all over" effect.

and this one...it just really turned out great. i was really surprised at how well it did blend together. like..those stocks were just MEANT for each other. :heart: thanks so much sweetheart. :tighthug:

Oooohhh man!!!! Totally 100% my new fave!!! Everything about this is perfect - the skull blends into the body just right, the hair looks great...The background is incredible, it looks like an old, found photograph and....my favorite....the trees and birds that are blended into the bottom. Awesome, awesome work :D :heart:

The birds were tattoos alreaddy on the model. She's beautiful. She has an awesome skull tat on her shoulder too.
The background is actually an overlay on the entire skull composition. The way the trees from that texture fit so well with her bird tattoos I was super pleased with how it turned out!

Thank you sooooo much :heart: means a lot to me. :tighthug:
