This is a major departure for me here on DA. This is a personal project I have recently started working on. It's called the 200 faces project.

It is not nudes, the idea is to present several characters of 200 people, men, women and children. I want to find the hidden joy of playing "dress up" becoming some character and letting go of the day to day us.

I hope you enjoy.

The first Sky Pirate that I actually think looks like a pirate.
I've held this fantasy genre in great respect and can safely say that most modern representations are tarnishing it. Ever since I grew up watching "Talespin" SKy Pirates were and are the swashbucklers of the sky that most young boys would either fight couragelously or join to hunt for booty. There are no stiched gears and sprokets which by most modern works of art seems to be trend for Steam an Dieselpunk, the man clearly shows both age and experience and his dirty face and pilot goggles just give that swas buckler rebelious feel that imaginations are made of. Honestly good work, I wish there were more.
What do you think?

This is a great shot Mark! I have also been shooting a similiar project. It's fun to develop the concepts that go with these shoots. I hope this note finds you doing well.

The Left side of the Beart is a bit too bright... if u use photoshop it whould be perfekt when u darken the edges of the beart a bit. than its perfekt. Looks a bit like drawn.

Great shot, seems like a paint, the shadows are realy nice and the light from the side to his face gave more drama to the hole escene. Also the make up and the cloth are amazing.
This escene reminds me a movie of Kevin Cosner "Waterworld"
Great work mr :thumbsup:
