Ivan: Shades of Grey by level-13 Ivan: Shades of Grey by level-13
:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

The Winter never ends, but the unseen hand never rests.
Every morning it was the same, dull grey. The same rain. The same chill that bit and clawed at his skin. The harshness unrelenting, the wind so cold and ruthless. Yes, this is how it should be. An ever-present and imminent reminder that each day the time grew nearer. Each day was yet another step forward against the blinding odds.

Ivan however, was not a man who made habit of betting on a wing and a prayer - oh no. His faith had long run dry. All that was left now was pure ambition. Ambition rising like bile in the back of your throat, bubbling and burning from within.

Patience was also a strategy. Yes... have patience and you too shall see. Soon enough... soon enough.

Another shot of Ivan, this time on a rainy morning sometime early this month. I added a puff of air so it looked like he was cold~ Haha I don't know, it made him seem a little more real in the photograph~
Tools: Photoshop CS5, Nikon D300 (borrowed)
Ivan Demidov: K-Doll Kael / JDF hybrid

No problem :)
Oh, on the contrary. I think it definitely added that realistic cold touch you were going for :)

Wow, I love this picture. There's just enough contrast to make the doll come to life, but it's still kind of dark. Besides, K-Doll makes beautiful heads <3.

I'm a sucker for K-Doll's heads too haha - this one has and open mouth/teeth as well and that just makes it even more kinds of awesome. *nods* It has to be one of my faves~ hehe

And thank you~ I was worried it looked a bit flat >w<

Haha, I'm a sucker for open mouths as well. There's a reason I own a SwD Lucas, a Gomidoll Iru and a Madoka. They become so lifelike when their lips are slightly parted.
