I really can't come up with decent titles for these pictures Smile

Anyway tonight I decided to experiment with an old lightbox that hasn't been used for yonks - I placed it on a light stand to the left and then used a small mirror to reflect a bit of light onto the top of the skull.

A texture layer has been added to muck up the background a bit - I'll pop up the version without the texture as well.

That's about it this time - no Topaz Adjust for a change Smile

That is one step up from a maggot crawling out of the eye

Ragged old volumes, time piece and specs orchestrate well together. Super! TG

The texture works, so does the forearm in the socket!

I was just about to ask what that was!!

V1 for me.

Dave

Ps that skull is rather too realistic ( it's not a previous house visitor is it?), or have you copied me and visited the local boneyard at night with mask and shovel? Wink

Great props Alison & nice lighting too.
I do prefer the warmer tones of V1.

Thanks everyone - sorry I'm late - it's been a busy few days!

I've yet more props to play with - now to find the time to use them!

The local boneyard is too far away for me to visit at night solo Dave - next time you're down this way we can have an outing!
