Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde commission

Halloween already?!
This was a fun commission I did recently of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
It was for a long time fan who has been a repeat happy customer.
Hmm...customer isn't the right word, but you get my gib.
I'll include some behind the scenes here for those interested.
a compositional rough, the face were near completion here
but I wasn't quite happy with the posing

Here's a little Easter Egg for you kiddies...
I wanted to add a subtle transformational image in between
the 2 characters-a sort of eerie subliminal touch I guess.
I'll reveal the process in the next 3 images.
To do so I took Jekyll's face,
enlarged it, flipped horizontal...
I stretched and pulled it using the warp tool
 to get the face to flow into Jekyll's pose...
and set the layer to overlay...
I turned down the opacity and made some adjustments using Levels...
I erased away the edges to blend it better...
That's pretty much it!
Here's a detail shot of the ghosted face.
I wonder if anyone noticed it before revealing it here?

Ok, back to work for this guy.
Thanks to Galim for commissioning this fun Jekyll and Hyde painting.
He also received a video of the creation of this image.
Repeat customers get cool bonus's!
