Withering Hope

I would highly recommend viewing this on black and at full size, there is so much more up close.


I don't have a whole lot to say right now except for that I'm sick as hell and I'm coughing up nice brown/green stuff. Really nice. I was going to go thrifting and see Brave today but seems like I'm not going to be able to. *sigh* Maybe I'll go take a shower for a few hours.

Anywho, this is the last conceptual piece I did with Natasha! It's so great being able to work with people who contact you for conceptual work. I feel like you don't find many of those, so I'm always excited when someone does! I've got some awesome ideas for next week's photo, including some water balloons, BUT I SHALL REFRAIN FROM GIVING IT AWAY MWAHHAHAHA. Okay, mucinex is kicking in. Time to continue my harry potter marathon.


I'm currently 83 away from hitting 1000 likes on my facebook page...so if you'd wanna do me a favor and like it for me, that'd be awfully sweet of you :3

I may or may not have a print giveaway, tutorial, or complete behind the scenes video (meaning i show you the entire process of shooting a conceptual) when I reach it;)
