Jason Seiler said...

Intense lighting, and awesome composition . . . brilliant piece man!

Paul Conrad said...

Holy smokes man! That's a winnah!

marcobucci said...

hahaaa AWESOME. You've got a good grip on that whole indirect light thing.

Luigi Aimè said...

Wow. That's really interesting... The light on the arm creates a very beautiful deepness effect.

Charles Eubanks said...

Wow, that's incredible! I like how the intensity of his facial expression complements the dark mood of his surroundings. I find the composition fascinating too -- his arm draws your eye in, and the lines formed by his legs and the trees keep your eyes moving around. I'd love to learn about your process, especially the artistic choices you make as you develop a piece like this. Would you consider writing a "making of" blog entry?

Vanhoozerbot said...

Wow.
Insane.

Friggin aye.

This is really great and I really want to add you to my RSS feed but I can't seem to get it to work... Any ideas why?

Mark Behm said...

Thanks everybody!
Charles: For this one I followed pretty much the same as the little youtube-head below. I didn't save any of the steps tho. Sorry. Some other time.
Yusecki: I know people had issues with google reader and my blog. No idea why. I think they hat to copy/paste the url as the subscribe bookmark doesn't work. Bloglines seems to have no problem with it. Go figure.

Man, that's really cool. I often wondered how the Disney Tarzan managed to shave.
