Decay by Mariusart Decay by Mariusart
-

April 30th 2008----

Usually I don't write that much, I think my pictures should speak for themselves - but as this picture was featured as Daily Deviation (thanx :-)) I will give some more information now:

this picture is the last one of a 7 picture series called "decay" which starts with a clean white mask in the first pic...

photography and make up done by myself (being a classic painter, graphic designer, photographer and bodypainter I like to do all those things myself ;-))
only slightly enhanced in photoshop (desaturated, contrasts enhanced, teeth removed -> I actually used black tooth paint when shooting, so there wasn't much to do here in photoshop too)

thanx for all your comments and favs!

I don't know if someone already asked this but how did you active this texture on the skin (what kind of paint, etc.) or is it top secret? (:

top secret isses nicht aber genau sagen kann ich es auch nicht. es war damals einfach ein experiment mit versch. (bodypaint)farben und materialien ;-)

this picture remarkably looks like pink floyds art work done in real life, and with a bit more added to it, i drew a pic of pink floyds the wall and it looks almost exactly like this lol except without the decay and everything else, its in my gallery if you would like to compare, other then that its brilliant

That is a brilliant piece of photography. I get a real sense of anguish and rage from this and the details of the decaying mask features are fantastic. +fav!

this picture kinda reminds me of aging, your body slowly decaying, breaking down, falling apart. Getting old is terryifying, alot like this picture
looks great by the way, very powerful feeling here
