Dark 08 - Skulls & Bones Machine or Memento Mori - perfect words added by MissCreepington :iconmisscreepington:)

[din când in când mai pica câte-un cap...:)]

The series of Dark # collection is a personal study around photo manipulation. Base images are mine, and the skull from istock.

This is beautiful.
I would label this a modern "memento mori"
The text on the bottom is hillarious too!

Good work!

Truly is!
What I see in this image (well besides my hilarious accent) has a real correspondence in so many things of real life. If you don't mind I'll add "memento mori" on the description, just because fit perfect.
Thank you :)

Of course I don't mind.

Glad I could help developping it further.
I really like this piece and I agree totally on that it has so many meanings.

Death is only "human" and natural, so it also has corresondance in real LIFE.

And I have to thank you,
thank you for sharing!

Yes death is a natural fact, and I agree that life & death are bind in an invisible way.
Your triptic is quite tough - (you could add a new image with all in one)

You Mini-series has a very natural-morbid way to it, as if you understand how all works.

The invisibility you mentioned becomes transcendet in the way you use yout textures and components. I think I'm in love with this style of yours.

I will take some photos with all in one and maybe some details.
Yet I'm still trying to get the photos from the presentation we had back when the assignment was due. Darn it, I didn't make any myself.

My images contain matter of states that I lived (on my skin) or universal laws (rules) that guide this world. That's why I not consider them quite Dark as others understand this category.

Also they are not study of minimalism because are based on idea (even I try keep it simple as possible)... so it's difficult to put somewhere.

Was nice talking with you - you are more mature than your age :)

I never thought you series was "dark" in a creepy or uneasy way.

I think they are utterly realistic concerning the world we live, suffer and love in, which has a tight structure, we don't yet understand fully.

I enjoyed talking with you as well and I appreciate the compliment. ^^

Hope to see more soon
I'll be watching you ;-)

Yeah, unfortunately i don't have much
time at the moment for dA as i wish...
But its just for the next 6 months which
i'm involved in a very exciting project... :D

Heya i'm still here, even when it takes
sometimes a couple of days (weeks)... :oops: :D

And of course nice to see you again too!
Love what you do! :)

Projects always are before anything - my life is built the same. DA is a playground from weekend or some moments of (subit)inspiration. I wish you good luck (especially power and inspiration in what you do) and hear you from time to time.
