[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
To make a long story short,this photo of my friend Serge was taken with a big red balloon under some spotlights.The focus was done on the balloon.I then used the Photoshop filters using among others the stainless glass effects,the distort polar coordinates and some brush tools.It ended this way making me think of some funny characters that we can see in Grace Jones' videoclip called "Slave to the Rythm".

Bonjour Michel,
Quelle belle surprise! Bienvenue de nouveau sur le site!
Je vois que tu n'as rien perdu de ta grande créativité!
Cette photo me fait sourire, tant ton modèle ressemble à un grosse araignée poilue, au ventre digne d'une reine abeille.
Excellent contraste chaud/froid que le dessin en blanc rehausse. J'aime bien l'effet mosaïque en arrière-plan qui peut suggérer que l'animal est dans sa toile!
J'espère que tu vas bien et que tu comptes publier ici plus souvent!
Bravo! Annie

Bonjour Michel
Quel belle surprise de te revoir sur TL. Comme le dit Annie tu n'a rien perdu de ta créativité délirante et inspirée. De nouveau une transformation originale d'un modèle humain pour en faire un drôle de bébête fantasmagorique. Du bon boulot.

Michel...so glad to see you here again! And I see you haven't lost your artistic touch:) This post is a delightful combination of photographic image and creative interpretation. I like how the stained glass shapes and distortions create a colorful nest, and how the white brush lines add an accent of light. Looks like this was fun to put together:) Well done.

Very colourful as usual, Michel, and even more creative. I like the way you used the filtr effect to frame the picture, and the work on your model as well. A bit weird though, but that blends in nicely with Grace herself haha. Terrific song, btw... makes me think of my "younger days" sigh...
