Bad Blood by arachnid15 Bad Blood by arachnid15
Some of you may have seen some work from my recent collaboration with `Katerina423 and *jzcj5 featuring the return of the textured makeup.

:bulletblue: `Katerina423 produced The Survivors
:bulletblue: *jzcj5 produced The Wretched and Thieves Like Us

"Bad Blood" is the first of the shots I produced to add to the series. As you can see I took a bit different approach in post. I decided to leave the funky colors of the mud masque and ground coffee whereas they went with a more desaturated look. It is interesting to work on something like this with other artists and see the different takes they can have.

Smoke here is natural and has not been manipulated. Jason was moving his head slowly back and forth producing the trails. We had enough light to shoot at a high shutter speed eliminating any blur that may have come about.

More to come. Hope you guys like them. :)

Others in the series...

:bulletblue: Tragedy Befalls Us
:bulletblue: Never Too Late
:bulletblue: Act Of War
:bulletblue: Winds Of Change

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-01-13
The suggester says; "The make up, the expression, the smoke- it all ties together to make a beautiful, melancholy, reflective macabre photo which is not overbearingly bloody or gory, yet still manages to both impress and unnerve!"
I am inclined to agree. A stunning piece by a super deviant who if you don't know of them already, really should take a moment and check out their gallery. Fantastic.

The tone and texture really struck me. I actually ended up dropping everything for the day and trying to sketch that texture. I still don't think it does this image justice, but you gave me a great opportunity to practice.

Thanks for the inspiration! Great piece, and congrats on the daily deviation.

Perfect timing on the shot...I love how it almost looks as if the smoke's coming out of his skin, between the cracks in that weird texture....
