Anatomy - Myself spliced with a flamingo (Jutmingo)

From my initial ideas I managed to come up with this so far.


  1. Hey there,

    This is an interesting beginning, however it would be more relevant if we could see more of you in the creature. You need to work out a way of melding your character and features with those of the flamingo so when we look at the finished piece we can recognise it as being you rather than a random hybrid. It is this recognition that will create the horror/ uncanniness and will result in a more effective final piece.

    Maybe taking a self portrait of yourself as a starting point and adding flamingo characteristics would be a better starting point, once you have worked out how the rules of the metamorphosis are going to work you can apply them to a full body image. You have to produce a series of head shots anyway so from those you can truly derive a Jutmingo.

  2. It's funny you say that as that is exactly what I'm doing now :)

    I've just put up my head shots and I'm going to use another peice of paper to trace over the flamingo parts and photoshop them together.
