...and it looks like he found one. True to form, it is someone smaller than he is, and even skinnier to boot. But that's how these yobs are, innit? Even the yuppie ones in their dress pants. :D

That's it for tonight. More in this series soon.

=====================

As I mentioned in the comment on the Request image for ~AMostPeculiarGirl, I was very intrigued by her description of a shady, mean character in dress pants and a sleeveless undershirt. So intrigued, in fact, that I decided to do a detailed lighting study of the character doing all sorts of 'mean' stuff.

I wish I didn't have to say it, but I guess I do: this series is a lighting study. It is meant to be extreme in its lighting design and, as such, may be unsuitable for certain types of stock use.

Honestly, I think the muscle definition is great in this one. It'd really help for drawing better muscles on the arm.

Yes, you mentioned that before. Wasn't that the one with that Butcher guy in it?

Haha, the 80's mall called. It wants its mannequin back. Interesting lighting.

I'm gonna go kick the 80's mall's ass next. I worked in the 80's mall during the 80's, and it's got a lot to answer for. Not least of which is REALLY bad pizza from the food court.

Bah, this series is great. I don't have to alter the lighting as much if I decide to use these. It's really hard to deal with if the photos are too bright. The lighting is perfect here for a dark scene. It isn't too dark, but you still get the shady figure idea. It's great quality, and on the figures I see no blue "noise" in this.

You have the yob feeling really down pat. For some reason it reminds me of what George Luks or the Ashcan School would paint. I'm a big fan of those rebels :XD: *Punches air* Power to the people! Um.. I'm going away now.

Good lord, woman, Luks is a household favourite. Mrs. Macalla digs him even more than I do. Good call!

:XD: Awesome. I like Mrs. Macalla! I've always been a big Ashcan fan though. Geez, that sounds wrong to those who don't know what that is, lol. "What, you're a hobo?"

Ehehe now there's the kind of sun dial I'd like to have in my garden. Judging by the shadow of the cigar, it would appear to be around sunset/sunrise.

Okay, that made me laugh out loud for about 60 seconds solid. I'm kinda proud to say that thought never even crossed my mind.

that made me burst out laughing . . .


strangely enough, in this pic you look kinda like either the guy who plays J. Jonah Jameson in the Spider-Man movies or a Stephen Briggs depiction of Commander Sam Vimes from Discworld. Must be the cigar.

I'd say the cigar and grey around the temples (but not just temples anymore :D )

nah, can't even see hair color in that pic. ;)

I think I'm reminded of Vimes because
a) you're about to haul off and punch someone
b) you've got the wiry build one would expect of a medieval(ish) street cop.
