Sorry about the huge watermark ^^;
I just wanted it to be 666 px :D


So, this is my entry for the Thou Shalt Self Portrait contest :D
I hope you like it.
I know I'm a little late, but happy birthday, deviantART! :party:

Damn, that fake blood is so messy! I got it in my hair and on my pants and on that blouse I was wearing. But it was sooo worth it! I really like how it ended up. :iconsilentmovielaplz:

Comments and constructive criticism are welcome. :)


Edit: Does anybody know why the hell the colors desaturate when I upload a photo? The colors on the original photo look bright and vivid, but this just looks like shit.
:pissedoff:

Edit: I think it's fixed now :D (well, I hope so ^^;)

not fixed... i'm really annoyed now :no:


Fixed :icondatawesomeplz:


Update: (wow, this comment is getting huge :XD:)
I want to thank :iconpullingcandy:, :icondistortedsmile: and :iconrockstarvanity: for everything! This is the fist time I actually won something for my photography! :excited: This contest was amazing and I really had fun doing this photo. This all caught me off guard and I'm still very surprised and excited. :D
And I want to congratulate to other winners, they definitely deserved it! :aww:


Art theft is a crime - whenever you steal my photo, a baby unicorn dies. :(

Maybe try "adjust auto colors" in photoshop if you have it, then it might get better. It works for old photograph that are bleached and have faded colors. Or Auto contrast.
Or you just pull the levers yourself...

And for the photo.
Really great image.

It's already post-processed in Lightroom and Photoshop CS5. The original is not the problem, the uploaded version is, so if I try to make the colors more saturated on the original (which would just ruin the photo), I doubt that it would be brighter on the uploaded version too. :( I appreciate your advice. :aww:

Thank you :)
