    First (or last, depends on how you see it) shoot for my LAST MAN STANDING series.

    Model is Fabian. Dirt is charcoal, blood is syrup, food coloring and water and the sweat is rapeseed oil and water.
    Foreground and background shot separately, combined in Photoshop. Quite a lot Photoshop work went in to this as you can see. I wanted it to look like a movie poster or something similar.

    A little updated. More dirt on jeans, a little more light on his face and a tad more contrast on the lower part of the image.

    Hope you like it.

    Looks nice, blood color is a little bit off to my liking.

    Thanks, I made the blood on his tanktop more red.. I've been working on this for so long now, I'm having a hard time seeing these things!
    Thanks! No actually I didn't even have a real backdrop. You should have seen the original shot, hahahaha!

    :stun: Bet that was a job to mask ! Giving the lasso tool a good work-out ?! :lol:

    If you'd ever care to share a tiny version of the original, i'd be very keen to see it.

    Nice skills behind the lens, and behind the screen ! :)

    He put some in his mouth to let it pour down his chin. I'm not sure that dish soap would have been the tastiest of choises, hah! But he said it was disgusting anyway. Though this is the recipe I've been reading about on all photo and film making forums and it works pretty well!

    Yes polygon lasso tool for the win. The hair was a bit easier than hair usually is because it was wet.
    I don't know about posting the original, haha... It's pretty embarrassing.

    Thanks! Maybe.. x)

    Cool, thank you so much. :)

    Hehe yes it feels a bit like it's 99,999999999% Photoshop work.

    We all look like this in Sweden.
