HIDDEN BY SMOKE AND MIRRORS by AlexanderLevett HIDDEN BY SMOKE AND MIRRORS by AlexanderLevett
And another entry, you can click the links below to see my other pieces for the Ugly Truth competition. All references used are my own and produced in Photoshop on a Wacom as usual.
EDIT: I decided to work on the smoke a little more and to have it passing into the undead as I felt this portrayed the concept a little better.

These are links to my other entries if you are interested.
THE PRICE IS TOO HIGH ARTWORK

Thanks, the smoke is about 12 layers of varying blur levels. It is very easy to build up and looks effective.

Glad you like it. I actually used raw meat as my reference for the body, my local butchers was a great place.

Yes, this is what I imagine smokers' lungs feel like. Gross. Good job with this one too!

Whether this places or not I really wanted to create a vivid yet dark image of the undead and had a lot of fun drawing smoke. Thank you

Wow! Very well done! It is obvious how much effort went in to making this. I love that there are no colors that are grossly overstated, and there are no distractions to pull the eye away from the subject. Good job, my friend :iconreddancingflower2:

Thank you so much for appreciating my effort, it is always something that tends to be forgotten. Yes I really wanted to keep the palette more subdued with this one.

I am so glad you can enjoy me work even when it is graphic, thank you. My latest work is even further down the rabbit hole, so I hope you enjoy that one too. It has been enjoyable letting loose the darker side.
