You know, that can actually become a real work of art if applied just right. Just add a mouth, some craters, and a old vintage rocket ship crash landed into it. Just a suggestion. Put it against a star background and make the photo look like something from the 1930's

looks like your bro could use some mosturizer

this is in zbrush right? did you use your own base mesh or just start with a preset or sphere?

Haha, thanks.
No, he didn't REALLY have the goatee and mustache, but he does in the photo. Photoshop is a thing of beauty
