The fall of icarus... by ramastom The fall of icarus... by ramastom
Hey...back into the world of photomanipulations ;)

Oki, thisis a special vision of the myth of icarus...I changed some stuff compared to the original story...
In the mythologic one, icarus falls in the sea because the wax which is used to fix his wings is melting (this crazy guy is flying too close from the sun) :o here, he's just burned by the sun (more interesting in a graphic way :aww:) and falls on the groud :( (more painfull...:evillaugh: )...

This is my way to see it...hope you'll like it :D
I know the file is a bit too udge and heavy, but I wanted you to see each details ^^; sorry for people who have slow connections, or little screen ;)

enjoy :p

truly a fantastic piece. i do love how it seems almost aged. how did you get the light behind to be so soft? this was completely done with a digital camera and photoshop, correct?

Reminds me of Hopesfall's new single, I love them...
I am going to be completly honest, I'm usually not a fan of photomanips, but I like this ... a lot! The texture looks great and the motiv itself is great. The wings look awesome and the idea behind it is also wonderful.
Great work :heart:
