Title: Marie Antoinette’s Revenge
Name: Cris de Lara
We (my and partner) did this image as a joke.
What if after decapitation, the french queen, Marie Antoinette, could return from the dead ? Would she be so angry and furious to want revenge for her death? Could be this concept used in Halloween time? It would scary enough to find a zombie woman with madness eyes holding an ax claiming for revenge?
Well, perhaps it won’t be so nice as my cute and sexy witch, in Jolly Halloween’s image, but I worked a different technique to make this image, to get this result.
I want to emphasize some textures, color’s choices, expressions, composition and also the creations of new exclusive brushes in Photoshop for this image.
We did some research for this job, and the best source was the movie Marie Antoinette, with the actress Kirsten Dunst from Sofia Coppola.
When we phone Kirsten, she was not available for posing, so we chose another remarkable artist to perform Marie (guess what) and this was the most funny part of the job, I would like to make a kind of challenge, could you imagine who is that girl? hehehe…
The image was done during other projects intervals and it took around 49 hours. I used only Photoshop.
