Gold mask'

When I first saw Morph 2.5, I was struck by its potential for generating original artwork using existing images as color palates. This is an unorthodox protrait of my little brother. I originally scanned a photo of the gold maks of Tutankhamun, then used Morph to map the colors of the mask onto the shape of my brother's face. An exported image was then cleaned up in Photoshop 4.0, where final modifications such as eye color and facial hair were made.
