This ghost of one of Topsy’s dearly departed Bionicles assembled and posed for your pleasurable fright!
About this creation
Encounters with the paranormal are super natural and normal at any time, but especially on Halloween Night!
A Photo of old Stanley, The Gearful in the flesh… well… sort of… he IS a Bionicle!
#1 The term, Obake, seen at the base of the intro photo, is a Japanese word for a supernatural being. You can read about it HERE.
#2 This work came about by my doodling with Paint’s color inversions command. Color inversions seem to be very fascinating to me at the moment. The one important thing I learned from my doodling, is that the original photo should have minimal points of light reflected off the build, else these reflections/glare show-up as black spots in the inverted photo.
Quoting David Alexander Smith
We take a lot of photographs of performers in motion at work, sometimes solarised. Strangely the inversions you use here give a sense of movement to your characters in a similar way.
Interesting... you view with your 'artist eye' perspective. Thanks for your comment. :)
