Death Eater by michellemonique Death Eater by michellemonique

Avada Kedavra

Model: Amber
MUA: Michelle Acosta MM# 1244818
Photographer: Michelle Monique MM#756829

More from this shoot will be uploaded soon!

Inspired by Harry Potter (C) JK Rowling

*I know the dark mark is supposed to be on her left arm, but it just so happened that for this shot it looked better on her right arm. Yes, it's upside down. It looks better that way and I'm too lazy to fix it. If I get one more comment about the frikin mark I might combust.

michellemonique my dear, I am not disappointed. I am not angry. I simply fainted seeing this deviation on my message center! :faint: When it comes to perfection in both photography and photomanipulating and costumes, you come first in mind. Your tweet on the workings on a Harry Potter themed shoot made everyone eager to see what would be the result. From your Banshee shot to Voodoo Queen, to this, you have worked nothing but perfection. The attention to even the best and correct death eater's mark (Yup, a harry potter fan, me) to the excellent use of photomanipulation of the green color of Avada Kedavra curse, it is truly brilliant both in terms of vision, originality and technique. It reminds me of Helena Bonham Carter, aka Bellatrix Lestrange in her moment of killing Serious Black in the 5th movie. And, I should say, Helena would be very proud to have a beautiful and charming death eater to be on her side! Death at last met his Beauty in her in this piece. A wonderful deviation just before the worldwide release of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince movie on July 15th, means a lot to Harry Potter fans like me, your fans as well as many others who will have the fortune of meeting you and seeing your amazing work. This is my divination to you and those who will see it!

Really neat photo-manipulation.
I love the pose, its like a striking snake in a way. Really brings out the sinister feeling of a death eater. Reminiscent of Voldemort's ways. :D

Though i think your model looks a bit 'clean' to be a death eater; maybe a more sharper and angry expression is needed as if shes really speaking the words of 'avada kedavra'
but thats just my opinion. Maybe shes a relative of lucius malfoy XD

I love the hair and your lighting, the glowing green reflecting off the spell. Its all put together really nicely. This has got me even more anxious to see the upcoming movie. :excited:

It matters not what they say, it matters in what you feel.
I for one did not notice the arm difference nor the 'upside down' mark! I noticed an achievement.
This piece will only work the way you have masterfully created it.
50 points to Slytherin.

Nice work mate! Beautiful model and rendering.
Although, as far as Death Eaters are concerned... pretty sure Sam Fisher can take on five of 'em in a skirmish.

If it's a problem to have the mark on the right arm, why can't the image just be flipped horizontally so that it looks as if the left arm is raised with the mark on it?

Anyways, gorgeous picture!

I'm gonna make you combust now... Any decent Potter Fan would know it should be flipped around and on the left arm... That's a wannabee Death Eater... so...

Enjoy your combustion :explosion:

I did know that. If I put it on her left arm you'd barely be able to see it.

This looks brilliant. I love the green glow the magic-fire's giving off, the model's pose looks great (love how the hair's wavy like that, to me it shows action, like she's dodging something and then doing the attack), and the Mark is nicely done.

Yeah, the mark is in the wrong place and blah blah blah, but it doesn't detract from how awesome this looks.
Oh, and :iconexpelliarmusplz:

What helped attain this fame? I wonder, was it the special effects, the fact the Harry Potter fandom was still alive, or the hypnotzing cleavage. Guess I'll never get my answer.
Everild-Wolfden Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Professional Writer
A mix of the latter two, methinks.... ;)
