Schmerzensschreie by Onyx-Philomel Schmerzensschreie by Onyx-Philomel
Memories of delightful dissonance – those cries from the hooks & chains – remain vivid & ever assuasive.

I tamper often with contrasts during post-processing, & the results vary. Sometimes to my satisfaction. :nod:

I just can't get over the intensity of those eyes. It's amazing in every single photo that they're visible in. ^-^

Not quite sure why, but if i look at the chains and the hooks it reminds me of Hellraiser...
And i think, Schmerzensschreie is a very fitting title. :clap:

another one of my favorites. :) mainly due to your eyes.
and i see you are putting your username at the corner of your art now. again; I do advise the watermark. I know you said it distracts from the art, and more understanding I could not be; a lot of my best works are the ones I put watermarks on and I do hate viewing it full screen and seeing something other than my edits. (photoshop work is what I'm speaking of, my HIM fan art and Once Upon a Time edits as well). but again. watermarks are a sure way of preventing art theft, and they're damn near impossible to remove if not entirely impossible. I only reinforce this bit of advice, as you know,  for preventing further art theft on your account. I love your photography, you have such an amazing skill and flair to it, and you yourself are quite lovely to look at , so your art itself is something I look forward to seeing. it is a sickening thought, knowing someone passed off your work as theirs, and I've been there myself, having to expose such insolence. 

rambling again, so to wrap up, I do hope this gets brought to justice and the thief is dealt with appropriately and effectively. do let me know in the end.

ps. my grandmother has German in her and at one point in my life, I took a liking to the language and even kept an english to german-german to english dictionary on hand. Cries of Pain was one of the first phrases I learned; I'd randomly turn t oa page or two and use those words on the page to translate and speak, to better my fluency in the language. so I think the title is interesting to me in that aspect :)

Applying my name to my photos is flawed, I know. Thieves will still find ways to remove it, but I'm simply too picky as it is when it comes to my photos. At the very least I'm hoping to reduce the theft.

And I like some aspects of the German language. There's a harshness to it -- a sternness.

As long as you are aware of it. 
as luck would have it- if you 'd call it luck- i came across a german woman today; she helped me find some much desire articles of clothing. Her voice, as most German's voices are, held the harsh/sternness you speak of. rather, a tone of, "Do not cross me; respect me and you shall be respected."

which, on a sidenote, I can appreciate Anton Lavey's  German translation of The Satanic Bible; Satanist's rule of thumb "respect and be respected". I feel the two go well with one another.

I have a simple, somewhat slender neck, complete with an adam's apple. :D

Necks are never simple. Men have stubble and goose bumps. A unique adams apple. A strong and or soft jaw line. Don't forget vastly various shapely jugulars. :3 Simple? Never.

My neck is never the focus of any of my work, so I don't think I have anything saved to placate your curiosity.

Hummmm. Very beautiful neck. Suhhhdup I'm not floating your your man gee-go! It is a rather nice neck though. The skin at the joint of your jaw and neckline is interesting, you are much more masculine than I assumed.
