EDIT: Winner of the 2014 Smite Launch Art Contest!
My team worked SO hard on this img! Im so proud! AND SCARED! Since we are submitting it to the SMITE Contest this month! Cross your fingers for us guys!
Its def unlike the more serious fantasy/fashion/fetish work we have been doing up till now because it has a flare of humor! They say if you are with a person for 2 long you start looking alike. If thats true- i should be Hel by now!…and so I am?
We started by staring at my closet trying to pull as close to the costumes as we could - out from what we already owned. Luckily for us- we are larping photoshooting crazy fuckers with gowns and glaives laying around. They weren't perfect but they just had to be close in shape. Conri is wearing a dinner platter under my antique furisode to stand in for a chest plate armor LOL ...SO MOVING ON!
We took turns photographing each other in a few different poses with static lighting. And screaming to Killswitch Engage along the way >_> Then we picked which poses meshed best and composites them together in photoshop.
THE LONG HAUL which was bringing it all together in photoshop man @_@ But it was fun to mix Photography, Modeling, Retouching and Illustration all into an image like this for a game I spend like.. unhealthy hours on these days LOL
SO! What do you guys think? Should we do images like this in the future? Like it? Hate it? Feedback would be great!
