    Wow! What I’m most impressed with is the high-coolness-factor of the finished product in what look about 10 minutes to create. You never cease to amaze me! 😀

    Pretty cool. think you could do more Terminator tuts? I’d like to see how you would make it look like the skull was peering through flesh of a human, preferably from scratch (ie, by not using pics of wounds for the torn bloody skin). any time I try, the flesh along the edges of the torn skin never really look convincing.

    Hey. Great tutorial. I have been making my own terminator as one would do but what i have been doing is layering my face over the top of it and adding in gun wounds and other wounds to it. I am not so satisfied with the flesh torn effect and was wondering if u could do a tutorial using the terminator skull u have just made and put a face on it also adding wounds similar to end of terminator 2. Much appreciated. All the best.

    Please help!! Its never happened before. I tried using the filter liquify but I couldn’t see the live preview while making the changes, but when I clicked ok, It actually did make the changes.

    Question : How do I see the changes being made while using liquify, is it some setting that went wrong?
    Thanks in advance 🙂

    Find your own pictures. Tutorials aren’t about following every single step to the dot. Challenge yourselves. Think outside the box. It takes zero skill to follow instructions, it just takes a brain…and we all have one. So, be unique and teach yourself something while learning something from a Professional.

    I have a question. This tutorial was interesting and good, but I courious for how can you do a realistic silver or metal skull from a human skull for example. In this video, You used a silver skull. But how can I do that?

    Hi , thanks for the video…:) .I followed every steps but in the end, image is quite same and cool, but there are some brown lines on the top of the skull. I think its because of the texture’s top right corner. I’d be glad if there’s any tutorial for texturing……
