But that's the art of creating a violent picture, right? Taking an ordinary one and turning it into something else. I mean, would you have guessed in my picture overthinking the exploding head is a frozen strawberry getting shot?...
You're right, it's all about the little details! I stumbled upon some gory images at iStockPhoto and Fotolia before, if you want to spend money on stock photos that is. But I'm pretty sure you could create those gory details yourself if you'd just mess around a little, try a few things, maybe find tutorials.
I only pay for stock photos, free stock just isn't up to scratch or available large enough most of the time. I reckon I could create the details myself, but it would take longer and not look as good as photos. I need something like Resurgere's heart photos but at much larger size.
Unfortunately so. I only pay for stock photos at the job, my private work is mostly done with free stocks. I don't want to know how long it took to find the right pictures for my New York City retouching Quarantine... must've been hours. Oh boy, Resurgere's heart photos sounds like a tough find - good luck with that! Can't wait to see what kind of gory picture you'll come up with.
Yeah that looks like some serious comping work, the initial photo itself is great though. Always nice to start off with a good shot. I know that in the past I have searched through maybe 10,000 photos plus to find a single good shot... I really hate photo searching.
