Knight of Cups
An armored polar bear carries the goblet as the knight of swords. Armor is a literal interpretation of knighthood, but also a representation of how this person can be guarded. The polar bear is comfortable with isolation and cold that drives others away. A part of the inspiration for this image comes from loving Iorek Byrnison from the Golden Compass book, as a teenager.

Meaning: An introspective, aloof dreamer. Someone who acts alone, with a guarded heart. A sincere lover, but one that may have difficulty building relationships.
Inverse: Intense, dark dreams. Isolation. Someone callous toward emotions of others. Defensive, quick to take offense.
Hi, I'm working on a photomanip image where a figure is peeling off skin and/or flesh to show the skeleton underneath. (Specifically, revealing an entire skull, neck and some ribs, with the flesh remaining on the rest of the torso and arms.)

Does anyone have tips on how to achieve this effect, or know of any good PS, painting or photography tutorials on how to do it? It can be stylized, but I want a realistic look. 

I've googled around and haven't found a tutorial that covers this very well... any help is appreciated!
