Lincoln Skullified by fantasio Lincoln Skullified by fantasio
This is a new series I´m working on, done in Sculptris, rendered in Cheetah3d some postwork done in Photoshop.

Abe Lincoln processing detail by fantasio

Skull:z: & Idols is an Iconography-series of popular personalities, this concept explores the relationship between success and superficialities.

With subjects as diverse as Batman, Andy Warhol and Che Guevara, and a visual conception that spots both, implicit and explicit similarities, the most fascinating phenomenon about this exhibition becomes the fact that even leader with a life devoted to others, are merely recognized by their humble appearances.

What started out in a spark of hope about understanding psychology, became an inevitable obsession which led further down to a core, until a point where we can´t be separated by the colour of our skin.

-
“When facing death we all become equal”

This is a skullified version of Abraham Lincoln.

Right now the list has about 147 names that will be skullified as part of this long term project, any recommendations of names from celebrities to comic heroes is appreciated.

Wow this is great. I actually found part of this image on a Bing search for some skulls done in Sculptris and this really popped out to me. Great work.
