Oooh, this will be interesting...
I'm going to mess around in Photoshop with a picture of myself to make a reference image. This is allowed, right?

Ok, here's some wip.

1 - me at the moment.
2 - me, bald from radiation.
3 - some of my skin decided to left my face. Now this looks like radioactive something.
4 - maybe after nuclear apocalypce I'll make myself a tatoo.

@Gecimen, Nah, I'm ugly enough in this horrible future.
I'll found myself an old razor on a dump and will be shaving every time when hair is growing.

I have a feeling that if FrankiePixelShow does this challenge, he won't have a bit of trouble pulling off disgusting mutations all over his face.

Indeed. He was the first thing I thought of when I read the challenge.

Crappy WIP.
Yes, those are ears everywhere.
I couldn't work out how to handle the light source under the nose, so I just removed the skin.

I'm not happy with my current entry. Both with idea and realisation.
So I thought i need something else, something more positive. And then I saw Chuck Berry's antology album cover
This is very rough wip, will be glad to see some advices about color choice and maybe anatomy.

Does something like this fits this challenge?
I know that it's probably not, but just had to ask. Started as a half-man half-bird half-plague doctor avatar.

@Finlal, good question.
Imo, it does not follow the spirit of the challenge being a mutated portrait which implies human even if the challenge is no humans allowed.
Ironically this challenge on one of its early drafts was a half bird portrait >.<

@Finlal, I found it funny too because the bird portrait idea was deemed a bad choice because maybe nobody would actually make one or it was a silly idea

I messed around with this for a bit, but it's not really up to my standard so I won't be turning it in and it's too late for a total redesign. Anyway, here's a little thing I ended up calling "I Was Daimoth"



And no, I'm not bald. That's just the point at which I decided to nix the piece.
