The Dark Ages: Before Death by ozanb The Dark Ages: Before Death by ozanb
I just wanna make an observation people;
I freaking hate the emo wampires that we see around these days. I think wampires shouldnt go to high school or fall in love. They need to be frightning and evil. thats it.

Model: :iconcey-cey:

oh and a funny fact; the model is a vegeterian :)

What did you use to get the white powdery look? It almost looks like flour or confectioner's sugar.

I agree with you about modern vampires, although Del Toro's recent Strain Trilogy about vampires was excellent.

totally agree.... the sissification of classically dark characters to satisfy PG-13 rating systems and target audience demographics have ruined far too many movies.

Love the textures! 
I totally agree!

It's interesting though, observing the influence of lore through the media. Vampires were once revered as evil, conniving, relentless monsters. And now they're these little angsty people who people want to accept they still suck blood, and some might be awesome. What's the subliminal message behind what media has done to shape these monsters into immortal "gods" dare I say it?

I definitely agree with you. Modern vampire-lore is a joke. Pale emo`s we see these days are a disgrace. =)

Damn that's amazing! :wow: So strong and powerful... that look could kill, even though I can't see his eyes. That is the perfecion on darkness. What a breathtaking picture...

(And I absolutely agree with you... Modern vampires have turned into fairies from barbie world, nothing evil and scary about them anymore)

One of the most breathtaking and powerful picture that I've seen. Good work from the model for the expression and intensity, good work to the make up artist for such a grimage and good work to you to capture it in a so good way and to play with the darkness like this !
