Thanks, Danny.
Re leaving a bit of the canvas unpainted, what i do is use a blank layer above the image and fill with white, then using a layer mask, paint with broad strokes with any wide-spaced bristle brush like "rough dry brush" from the wet media series. Hope this helps.

Zombie McDowell

This was done entirely in Photoshop CS with the use of layer blending modes and a little creativity.

Cant really explain how this was done as it involved many steps and not too much attention was paid, but briefly it goes as follows:

- Original
- Painted her face black and then applied a layer blend to bring out the - highlights to give the appearanve of a real pained face.
- Painted the remaining background black
- Erased the black from the eye sockets
- Overlayed a skull and resized to match proportions of the face
- Erased what i didnt need from the skull and set a layer blending mode to bring out the highlights and lose the lowlights

There was also extensive use of layer blend modes, but i cannot quite remember in which order they were applied, i do appologise.

While subject-wise much this one is too "on the dark side" for my personal tastes, I greatly admire your creativity and technical skills.

Is the gash hand-made or did you splice it in from a different image.

Thanks for the comments danny,

The gash is handmade. It was created by using one of Photoshops inbuild textures, EDIT / FILL / PATTERN, the first texture is Bubbles, i used this texture with a dark red overlay.

The blood was created by creating a new layer, drawing a few lines with a deep red colour and then applying the Plastic Wrap filter to it, this gives it a nice red blood looking shine.

How about a semi-goth Andie? (I've always had a thing for goth chicks..)
