I reuploaded this one because it is now edited beautifully by a good friend of mine from deviant art who was kind enough to take the time to fix up this shot :)
I LOVE http://wind-swept-canid.deviantart.com/ SO MUCH. This is her second photo edit for me and I am flabbergasted at how perfectly she captured the image I had in my mind when I took this photograph. She edited the name on the tombstone to both protect the identity of the deceased as well as make it match the game. She also cleverly edited the DOB/DOD to match the correct years for Joey Bartlett. And of course she also masterfully got rid of the watch Val was wearing, something that I consider to be quite a challenge!
Thank you so much, you have once again made my day for the next 6 months lol, I love this!!!!
This was taken at one of the cemeteries we visited. Val got out the watch and I posed him with his hand on his face as if it was making his head hurt (like in the game of course!) The watch is made 100% form scratch (and of course it does not function as a result of that...) Aside from the fact that the places that held the bands in place broke the rest of it did okay; I definitely need to use sculpey next time, no more model magic :\
I styled Val's hair for this shoot, as well as made Joey's watch (which uses the actual game model for the back and faceplate since I could never re-create them as well lol). Val of course made his Alex :D
