While I sometimes call this piece, “Hair,” I think its true name is “Guilt.” Guilt grows from the mind and can consume the mind. It weighs you down, makes you a prisoner, and immobilizes you. But it’s not something you can just cut off— there’s an emotional attachment to that feeling of guilt, a strange sense of responsibility as if you deserve it, the bondage and suffering. Because you should have known better. Because you could have avoided it. Because you would have done something different if you knew that this would be the outcome. It grows and grows and grows.

first basic shapes w/ low opacity brush -- texture helps the brain stew up ideas  as it has a more organic edge laying down more general shapes adding another color so the image isn't so one dimensional, and defining the silhouette having fun w/ details! I use the lasso to layer by drawing a silhouette of the shape i want and sampling other preset colors w/ the eyedropper almost done! I like this color version too. slapping on a gradient map helps uniform all the colors.  I add a bit more definition w/ sharpening and color dodge brushes.  viola! This guy will be fun to paste and reformat into other larger images

quick zombie process! 

captions are set with extra notes.  Did this w/in 40 mins.
