Before I saw your title I thought 'she is more Borg than the Borg' ! A marvellous creation - she is somehow sexy at the same time as being . . . well . . . assimilated.

Sorry , she is Ness in the real world , a barmaid who Is my only model.

Bit shy to ask anyone else to pose.

We worked here on the story as well ! And that was the idea behind this transition.

Love the texture and the feel of the edges of her clothing and the background. See alot of sci-fi movie influences here. Excellent work, often fancied doing something like this myself, inspirational. My Alice could be in for a left handed makeover. Loads to learn from this. Or copy.

Not only is the PS work done superbly, knowing to some degree about the depths you have gone to, in order to achieve the right tonality in each aspect of the shot, but also, what a well angled and directed portrait you have taken to start with.
So inspired...

Simply these lyrics by Snow Patrol , Inspired it.

"I've got this feeling that there's something that I missed
(I could do most anything to you...)
Don't you breathe
Something happened, that I never understood
You can't leave
Every second, dripping off my fingertips
Wage your war
Another soldier, says he's not afraid to die
Well I am scared
In slow motion, the blast is beautiful
Doors slam shut
A clock is ticking, but it's hidden far away
Safe and sound"
