So, this one is entirely [livejournal.com profile] kingpig's fault.  She posted some pictures of Trent Reznor, and with my recent PhotoDraw experimentation craze, I decided to play with one.  I'm calling it a 'work in progress' because I'd like to do some additional work and improve things as I practice and (hopefully) improve my skill at digital painting.

(Link to full size here) 

I painted in the wand and mask.  I had a difficult time painting in the mask - I'm still not sure I have the perspective correct.  It doesn't look scary enough my art, so I'd like to make it scarier.  The mask was based on the ones that [livejournal.com profile] dixiebell12  made for the DE's at Portus.  They look a lot more Death Eaterish and scary in RL.  :)  I also painted in the robes and enlarged his nose.

Here's the original photo:


Thanks for posting such inspiring pictures kingpig!  I'm going to start playing with the other one...if I can do it without drooling all over my keyboard.

Yes! I remember those masks and they were exactly what I had in mind when I did this! I didn't know anyone, so I wasn't sure who made them (and I was too shy to talk to anyone). I'll add that into my post. They look scarier in RL than they do in the art, that's for sure. :)

You didn't need to be shy. Hugs. We are all friends in the ship. =)

Go death eaters and angsty Snape!

Thanks. :) I'll be at Azkatraz and plan to be less shy. Or, I'll attempt to be less shy anyway.

Oh, this is very nice. I adore TR as Snape, I must confess. *shivers* I can feel his despair.

Ooo...pretty icon. *pets it*

Thanks! I thought that the pose was just right to portray how torn I think he probably felt as a young Death Eater. His body language speaks volumes.

I love this one! I wish you had a Photoshop CS program, you'd take to it like a duck does to water! It's hard to believe that's your 3rd pic *G* You're doing amazing!

Gorgeous. Not scary, but sad. He makes my heart hurt.

Thanks. Yes, it's definitely sad. I thought the pose spoke plainly of inner conflict and anxiety.
