Daaannngg. There's a lot more to this shot than meets the eye at first glance, and those are the sorts of photos that I LOVE. Perhaps it's a bit forward, but would you ever consider creating a tutorial for burn scars? My next doll will have quite a few, and these are possibly the most realistic I've seen yet!
Geh, I keep coming back to his pitted, mangled fingers. They are so. SO. Expressive and beautiful. <3!
Tutorials aren't something I'd be real good at [that and I have a commission service doing this sort of thing -hah] mainly because when I do things, I just sort of do them and wouldn't know where to begin in explaining D:
He's got burn scars, doesn't he? It seems powerfully sad to me to see his burned hands with a cigarette in them. It's a very lonesome picture somehow. (Then again I think scars are lovely when they tell a story.) ;3
^_^ being a fire elemental, he doesn't need to bother with lighters or flames from outside sources. And losses of control years back didn't stop a smoking habit he's had for over 50 years -heh.
Thankyou so much. The smoke is just a brush I found a long while back in PS, I think it's supposed to be mist [there are a few of them] but it's always worked perfectly for these. I'd leave the picture blank if I couldn't get it to look even remotely realistic ^^
Still always amazes me the amount of detail you put into your dolls and photography. Sadly I don't have that kind of drive towards dolls any more.
Actually, the amount of detail and work you put in to anything is down right amazing, and awe worthy. I know you probably get fangirly crap all the time but I do aspire to one day be as good at detail one day as you are now, in at least one feild XD
This is an awesome picture Nezu, the cigarette just tops it off, it really feels like there's much more to interpret from it, if that makes any sense. XD Your scarring work is fantastic as always, very realistic.
;3; Thanks you, I lovers Lan and his scarring muchly.
Haha, do eet. I actually have a shitton more to post, of both year 20 with them and 35 with Sen and Samara. so much has happened and I just haven't had time to sit down and do all the encoding D: soon hopefully!
