Thanks everyone for enjoying this image. This is the second in the head deco series.

This was the first.
Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_728666.jpg

Now for the details. Yes..this is my husband..again. He was very patient. I think it took about an hour for all the details. The head was shaved and painted with black. This was also done over his face. The colour paint was then added. The chains were linked to 2 large hoop earings and then glued onto his scalp. He also wore a nose ring in some of the photos.

The crayons were then glued in place and then he stood in front of a white board. There was one flash aimed at the whiteboard but the rest of the lighting was natural as I shot this outdoors.

Thanks again everyone.

What an awesome amount of work for this image! I really love the design in paint and the crayon designs, but I find the chains incredibly distracting. In my opinion this would have been much stronger without them. Congrats on your ribbon!

  Photographer found comment helpful.

A very creative look at crayons - the image meets the subject matter and with a certain cheeky attitude. A terrific demonstration of the creative process in meeting the challenge. Should be a sure bet to win a ribbon or place high as a top twenty image. A couple of minor detail problems not worth mentioning because they don't appear until you really get a critical eye and examine the image closely. Well done.
