The Dark Mark

February 22, 2021

A match lit portrait, featuring the Dark Lord's calling card. I saw the existing tendrils of smoke as the snake body, and that's what inspired the rest of the image. I took the smoke already created by the match and manipulated it in Photoshop to form the skull and snake mouth. I found some reference images and blended them into the smoke, so the whole image looks seamless. The model is Tiffany Mayfield and her Instagram is @eatglutenfree_dfw
