Alien // Ice Queen

I've been experimenting with digital collage recently, particularly portraits! Both original photos used in these 'Alien' and 'Ice Queen' designs are the same, and are in fact both me! What I love most about digitally edited photography and collage is the ability to make anyything; I love being amazed at how far you can take a relatively simple photograph and turn it into something beautifully complex!
The Alien Portrait was inspired by some of Dave McKean's work, particularly this piece; the alien eyes add such a mysterious twist to a portrait. The ice queen was just another theme I wanted to experiment with; the dress is made out of glitter that I'd photographed, but it reminds me of the Motel Rocks sequin dresses!
