Your photographs with this mask remain some of my favorites from you. Truth be told, I never truly took interest in Anubis before coming across your personification of him... And now, any time the god is mentioned in conversation, this is what comes to mind.

I especially like the sepia tone.

Since I obtained the Anubis mask, my interest in him has definitely intensified. I have taken hundreds of photos with this mask, which have yet to be post-processed & displayed. :skull:

Onyx-Philomel Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
I sought a vintage effect, & therefore I used a sepia filter. With a single light source, I also increased the contrast a bit.

Why, thank you.

I used a sepia tone for this one, with increased contrast, for a vintage effect. :nod:

I have to say the filter is probably my favorite part about it. The colors are gorgeous.

I hope you do. It's a lovely effect.

I do, actually. I'm in the process of making a robot suit for a cosplay from Evangelion. It's my first time attempting armor, actually. I need to have it finished in less than 4 weeks and I don't know how I'm going to pull it off @@;;

Evangelion is a nostalgic favorite of mine, despite Shinji's melodramatic tendencies.

Which character will you portray?

:iconsexywhales:
sexywhales Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Is it? I only just watched it a couple of months ago, and I completely fell in love. I might be obsessed!

I'm cosplaying Shinji's robot, Unit 01.

Once upon a time I was likewise obsessed with Evangelion. I've been meaning to get around to seeing the movies that followed the series.

I look forward to seeing your Unit 01. :D

I truly love this piece.  There are many things about it--the lighting, the flow of the fabric, the tilt of the head, the gaze and the fall of the hair--that pull the viewer in and begin to weave a spell around a person.  This was expertly done and I appreciate the generosity of sharing it with us here.  Thank you for that.

No problem. I try to be selective about it. Not setting back into my old (years-ago) ways of mass-Faving like it seems many people still do.
