The Return by zbush The Return by zbush
NEW! Youtube video different stages of this piece.





Created for the Slashthree book which you can order here.

[link] < to preview the pages of the book.

I made this back in January but I still really like it. The props I used to create this were 3 orange extension cords, a vacuum cleaner hose, flood lights, and my new year's party mask (painted the lines on it using a sharpie). Went down to my basement and hung all this stuff up on the beams since it is an unfinished basement. I put my camera on a tripod and set it on a timer and took three different poses of myself and then painted over pretty much everything until I got this.

Great colors and lighting, but it's a pitty, it's unable to see the stairs on the background.

Damn. I love it when good art makes me stare. Really. This is just so unique, that it needs its own category, because photomanipulation just doesn't cut it.

Congratulations on a well deserved DD.
