Moldy - Xhxix tribute (by Corinne Alexandra) Model: Jacob Prest
Canon 5D Mark II | 24-105mm | AB800 shot through large softbox camera right
Ever since I stumbled upon the incredible digital paintings by Japanese illustrator Hi aka Xhixix, I’ve wanted to recreate his works in photo form (much like the Brian Viveros tribute I did last year). The hardest part was finding a model that I felt looked close enough to the painting. I searched all over the Internet trying to find a male model with the right hair and facial structure within Southern California. I had pretty much given up, until I met Jacob through his band who had hired me to photograph their new promos. I felt like I struck gold. I didn’t hesitate to ask him to help me with this shoot, and I couldn’t be more excited with the results. The mold on his face was created using dry oatmeal stuck on with liquid latex and painted over with a grease makeup combo of white and green. (See the original painting here)
