While a lot of my images are quite heavily processed it's rare that I combine images, not because I think there's anything wrong with doing so, but because I find it difficult to achieve an end result that I like. For example, I would love to be able to produce the sort of images that Mike Regnier creates, and while I do understand the process, I find that my attempts often fall short of what I would like to achieve.

In this case though I'm relatively pleased with the end result which was constructed from two originals – a shot of a mannequin, and another of a wall – both of which can be seen here:


I'll probably produce a tutorial on this topic at some point, but think I need some more practice first :-)

Hmmm... a wallequin... a mannewall... interesting effect... details emerge the longer you study it. Nice.

Turned out really nice - I've tried many of these recently and it's all about getting the right texture to go with the right image, and making them work together rather than just be there for texture's sake. It's all about the blending modes... ;)

Hi Dave,

I definitely like the end results of those two images combined. When I first saw it, I was WHOA, this is different! I especially like how the crack runs across the cheek. Thanks for sharing it. You are always giving us something different to see and try. I am sure when the time arrives for a tutorial, it will be quite interesting.

Could definitely grace an album cover. Has an almost painterly feel to it too...

I agree with Mark... it's got a fresco-like quality to it. A modern day Sistine Chapel ;)

This is amazing, the processing turned out perfectly. Great combination of images, texture and tones.

This shot reminds me of the work of Holly Warburton. She did , amongst many other projects, a few album covers for the singer/multi-instrumentalst Danielle Dax, who was one of my favourites in the Eighties. The mannequin even looks a little like Danielle. Nice work!

It took me less than one hundredth of second to click the link from your RSS feed in order to admire this piece of art in a bigger size. The result is very good... It really impressed me as I always wanted to do this kind of thing but never reach even a poor level... lol
Really well executed... wow
