Destroying Something Beautiful by iamthelizardqueen Destroying Something Beautiful by iamthelizardqueen
Here's yet another self-portrait!

"Where'd you go, psycho boy?"
"I felt like destroying something beautiful."


After having this uploaded for some time, it has come to my attention that this somewhat resembles the True Blood promotional photo, but I hadn't seen that until after having taken it. I actually wasn't trying to create a vampire vibe at all, but you should feel free to interpret my work any way you like.

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-14
:iconscytheskull:
First to say this is beautiful. I am not much of a photographer, but know a bit about photography. I can't help but say this again; It's beautiful! The only thing that could make it a bit more realistic looking, is that the blood seems to just be one smudge and a large drip. To add a little more impact, I think there should've been a few smudges on the cheeks, and not so directly around the lips. I love how you got it on the teeth though, that was awesomly messy and realistic looking. Overall, though, this is just AWESOME. Keep up the good work ;)

I think that the red on the lips should be a tad bit lighter to make the effect or illusion of it being real blood

It's just gel food coloring. Watch out, it stains.

this picture of yours is amazing!!
The bright white make up makes a very good contrast against the red. Makes the red feel more alive.

hey, you're welcome and me and my firend have a band and would love to use this image for the album cover- d you mind?

That's really flattering, but I do mind, actually. I'm sorry, but originally I allowed my boyfriend's band, Jericho Vs. Mankind, to use this image for their myspace before they had band photos taken. It's already linked to them, so I'm going to avoid it getting attached to another group.
