I usually shoot in the studio but I thought it would be fun to shoot outside for a warmup. This turned out pretty good but it was lot more work than what I thought it would be! I'm used to the studio environment where it's much easier to remove a model from the background. In this case there was a lot of distracting piped behind him that were removed. I didn't want to extract him and the fence so I had to leave the sky as it was. Still - not to bad.
Sometimes a dark perspective is a good place to come from. It gives you a more realistic view of the world. It's also a place of power. Some of biggest changes in life have come from a dark place. I don't want to stay there but it is a good place to visit sometimes.
When I was in college I wanted to make computer games for a living. I actually made one - Hostile Takeover - and distributed it to all the big games houses of the day and asked them to hire me as a game developer. I had a lot of interest but at the end of the day it didn't work out. Instead - here is how I would make my RPG today! He's got a +5 sword of smiting and a buff of Protection +12.
When I was a kid, my best friend had an amazing older brother. To the young me he was practically perfect. One day I was spending the night at Joe's house and I got up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. I saw his older brother in the kitchen totally naked. I just started at him for like a minute before he saw me. He got this big grin and asked me if I wanted a sandwich. I wasn't shy - I said Yes! He made a killer sandwich - cut it in 2 and gave me half.
