Skullcandy by Asrath
Skullcandy
It's been a while, I know folks. I have started at art academy, and I've been rather busy in life in general as well. Some personal stuff going on which takes up a lot of my attention atm.
But anyway, this was an idea I got (out of the blue) while working on an art assignment for school. It is pure coincidence I had a bag of candy on the same day I started photographing some skulls. I munched some candy as I did so, and realized the huge contrast between the happy candy and the rather morbid skull, and decided to try out what it would look like if I'd combine the two into a little "photoshoot". Lots of pictures and experimentation later, this is what came out (my favourite).
I really like how this one worked out, and also feel like there's much more into this photo than what I thought when I just shot it. You got a contrast between colourful/happy <-> morbid/death, but it also natural <-> unnatural, and it raises questions on why the skull is there, why it's on top of candy, etc. Sugar kills, humans kill animals, modern society kills both humans AND animals, colourful candy is a typical thing of this age, also causing many of the health problems of this age.
I think that, plus the lightning, makes I feel like this is a good picture!

Feel free to comment and share your opinion. Do you agree? Disagree? Have another view? Lemme know! :)

Took this with an ordinairy phone camera, a desk lamp and some sheets of paper to block out the environment. Nothing fancy. Really the kind of stuff anyone has lying around.

Hey! Welcome on my page! :)
I'm Erik (Also a fan of my current name-same Erik of the Opera the Phantom of the Opera), and I'm a crazy (yes, I am), Pagan, transguy.
Making art is one of my greatest joys in life, and my dream is to ultimately become a successful, professional artist. (I have a focus on illustration, but always keep options open)


"Things were made to be used and people to be loved. The reason why this world is in chaos is because people are being used and things being loved."
-Unknown

I'm also an INFP according to the Meyers-briggs personality types

Feel free to ask me a question in notes or comments. I also do commisions (still early stages). Requests and art-trades are only for friends (not necessarily real-life friends tho')

Thank you for the loan of your clothes although I do look rather ridiculous in them.  Do you really actually wear this?  Ok, well, do remember... a Lannister always pays his debt! Thanks too for the fave, Jaime Lannister
