I've been manipulating my images since my first darkroom in 1968.
With the advent of digital imagery and photoshop, they opened the door for me to take it to the extreme.
Here are some examples, starting with a self portrait:

IMO as long as it's for artistic and not editorial use there's no issue. For editorial use, heavy photoshop is just as wrong as altering a negative was.

Very interesting and creative artwork here. Definitely something different

At first I was a little skeptical - but actually they are very cool shots!

These I pulled from some snapshots taken at a Halloween party with a POS, I mean a P&S. Harsh lighting and skin pore details combined with a red background conspired to make the original image appear to have been taken at a morgue.

I like them.

Someone may want to hire your talents to do posters, signs, billboards, postcards, special ads, etc.

I am attempting to market my work now, a totally different animal from creation.

Here is the before shot of Yolanda.

I like 3. I think all of them could be sold because they are pretty unique. 3 has an Escher look to it and has some really nice colors. Now the question is how toget the shots to a buying audience! Good luck.

Escher and Dali are my two greatest influences, thanks for picking that up!
