Much to my surprise, this is a minimally edited photo. I tweaked the exposure down one step to remove some of the white burn in the corners but it really did come out of the camera that blue. And many thanks to Trent Reznor for such a great title. It’s a lyric from a NIN song but I have no idea which one.
I’ve been flicking through some of my old photos and I found at least one that I thought deserved an outing. I probably ignored it when I took it because I didn’t know how to do what I wanted to do to it. I’ve got Lightroom now and I’ve discovered a whole new world of post-processing.
I’m still not 100% sure about it. I think I blew out the white too much but the hands look really cool and I like to think I captured a little of why scarecrows are so damn creepy. Not being able to see his face makes you start filling in the details and there could be anything under that big, pointy hat.
I know so many people who have themed sketchbooks or a particular character they request from comic book artists when they’re at a con. Well, I’m having a totally crazy theme idea for a sketchbook for my trip to Baltimore (and any other future cons I get to): Doctor Who. Specifically, David Tennant’s Doctor. I’d obviously have to get some reference pictures because most of the artists aren’t going to know who he is but I think it could be a brilliant idea. And it combines two of my loves – Doctor Who and comic books.
