This was made for a contest in a group, with the theme "Behind the Mask" and so I thought it would be really cool do something diferent, without the usual and ordinary masks we are all used to, like the venetian ones. My main thought was the Phantom of the Opera mask! Of course! So I ordered the mask from eBay (it only cost me 1€, I swear... see how amazing eBay is?) and did this portrait.

And this is the Before/After.

The thing I notice everytime I post something online, is the feedback, whether is from Likes and comments on Facebook, Favourites and comments on DeviartArt, or Flickr, or whatever. This particular one didn't have as much feedback as my other work. I'm not complaining, it's just that I absolutetly loved doing this and I honestly think I did a pretty good job, trying to use Fine Art again. I don't know... what matters is our satisfaction with out work, right? =)

Diana Esteves

Last sunny Sunday I had a wonderfull photoshoot with the lovely Diana. Diana asked me to take her picture sometime, and obviously... why not? Here's the result of a well spent afternoon. The lightning was perfect and the mood even better. Enjoy!

New favourite

As a result of experimenting new fine art techniques, this turned out to be my latest favourite portrait/work of all time. It's been a while since I felt the safisfaction of the instant result as I was editing. It took me approximately 2 and a half hours on the digital processing and I couldn't feel happier about it. "The Catalyst" from Linkin Park helped me a lot when it comes to inspiration and, pardon my modesty, I think I did a pretty good job.

Here's the before and after.
