The incredible blending job that Maykel Lima does for these skull portraits is out-of-this-world good. Transforming all of the people in the portraits into morbid creations that have skulls infused into their visages makes for a distinct series.

The stark black and white theme that Lima goes with is the perfect way to highlight the disturbing nature of the portraits. The way that he melds the skull and the person's face is so good that you can't even tell if it's real. It's that technical skill that allows for these skull portraits to become so surreal.

The ability to transpose photographs in this fashion is not an easy task. Maykel Lima really shows off his creativity and photo-manipulation talent with this series.
