finding the violence by R727 finding the violence by R727
I posted this on Tumblr a long time ago but never got around to putting them up here. Excuse the grain -- shooting in the dark equals high ISO. It was an experiment in doll posing.

Ysrael is violent. Brutal and relentless. Stealth and subtlety, those aren't his selling points; his work is messy and savage. Intimidation by way of cold-blooded ruthlessness is how he works.

One day I'll find a way to photograph him as violent as I imagine him to be, because I know he doesn't come across that way, even in these photos. This isn't anywhere close to what I envision him to be like.

Also no, that doll is not Remi or anyone else. He is a mixture of doll parts and clothes to be an anonymous, random person, I promise. 8);

I feel like the top one conveys violence really well. I know it must be hard to get the dolls to pose in a very active-looking way, but you did a really great job even if it's not quite what you wanted. I love it c:
I just love the top one, aaah the shadow and's great~

I like the grain! :D I think it really adds something to the shot. I really like the second photograph.

I concur. The gain makes the violence apparent. Your work is usually so crisp and colorful that this particular moment stands out rather like the quick glimpses of pain Ysrael's victims would percieve. Totally love it!

This is definitely violent! But if you want to make it moreso, maybe show his fist actually connecting? Get some easily-washable red coloring and turn it into blood? I think showing the aftermath might get the message across easier than than showing the act.
Besides that, I really do love these, they show action brilliantly and your posing skills are just /so/ impressive!

Ooh, blood would definitely help! I've heard of people making their own fake blood but I guess I'm too scared it would harm the resin of the doll. 8); I need to research it more, I think. But I think if I showed the fist connecting, it wouldn't be as effective because I can't show the resin of the other doll reacting to the punch -- if that makes sense. Flesh and bone gives way, but the plastic won't. But definitely, showing the aftermath with blood, that would definitely help. 8D Thanks so much for your input, I really do appreciate it! :iconloveloveplz:

I suggest some sculpy III baking clay. You can use it soft to distort the face into other expressions. In terms of the b/w & high ISO you used here, it will help to hide the change of material used in the face, and in terms of coloration, you can mix up whatever color you like and not worry about staining your resin models.

That makes sense! I forgot that flesh gives way. I hope you're able to find something that won't harm your dolls, because they are gorgeous and I'm sure you treasure them. You are so very welcome, I'm happy to help. =)
