Glad you liked it, and are using it rokytnji  :)

I tried to follow a tutorial for something it didn't work for me, probably my own fault.
I wanted to complete it and so just used the simple techniques trial and error for about 30 minutes, and done this instead.
I used the image from my last edit, and reduced her face size, just 2 layers one for her and one for the London City graffiti, reduced opacity a little and 'burned back' her image, added in bit of shadow to hide the photo edges a bit better.

I like these a lot.
I have seen some other shaped skulls with eye patterns, what does the skull theme represent?
They are really nice to look at. 

Here is one by 'Mef' & 'Kem' near where I live,(centre of country) top right they tag the dialing code for this city, they also show the dialing code on the dice the man is holding in the centre.
In January at the nearby town of Royal Leamington Spa, the art gallery had an exhibition of street art, Mef and Kem had works on display inside and outside as they were also asked to do a graffiti mural on the wall of the art Gallery outside.



graffiti house, in this city.

Here

We party down hard here on Holloween or Día de Muertos.

The heart on the head of the middle skulls head eating watermelon. Well. I guess/hope you saw Apocolypto?


The scene the middle skull refers to is
Which mostly all Mezo-Americans practiced at one time or another

Thank you for explaining  :)
I had not seen Apocolypto, but have viewed the scene now, and read the link.
It is why the skulls are appealing, they are meant to welcome the ancestors during the Día de Muertos.

These are all amazing! Hard to figure they were done with aerosol paint cans...the lines are so clean and crisp. Looks more like air brush...if they're not...these people possess mighty fine talent!

The specialist aerosol cans and a variety of different caps are used -
Here are are a couple of the shops in this city, you can see photos of the types of caps and paints they use.
The Bench << this one is near to me, less then 2 miles.
Graff City

Near The Bench on the nights is where more than one Ubuntu user groups meet up in venues, I read of these once a while back.
Over another edge of the city centre Linux users have almost sole use of some coffee shops and canal-side venues on specific nights, and the owners like this and cater for their needs, these are not distro specific, but are Linux specific.
I have not been to any of the groups myself.

Yeah. Rattle Can paint has come a long ways. Most every Biker I know rattle cans his paint job on his motorcycle instead
of paying hundreds for a shop to do it.

Just some more graffiti



This dude is just using a towel. He makes the skulls by wiping off the built up exhaust fumes in the tunnel.
When the federales came to bust him. He told them, "I am just cleaning?"

There was such a public outcry they left the guy alone. The graffiti style is called "reverse graffiti"

Not sure if you are aware of "Ron English" He is old school radical graffiti artist. Has been a outspoken street artist.

I had not heard of this before, reverse graffiti, its a good outcome they left him alone  :)
My cousins late husband was a biker in MC.

I wasn't aware of Ron English, the Popaganda link was interesting and has some amazing graffiti, thank you.

Thanks Guys, the links and info are quite informative. Looks like shooting paint from a can has come a long way.  Always used a gun and compressor myself. Need the pressure for the types of paint used in the aviation industry. Don't prep and shoot it on right and it peels off during the first flight. There were some very cool images at Popaganda. Hulk Boy and Micky were pretty freaky...among others. have a good one!
