Just to make a long story short,this black creature is my friend Serge.To take the picture,we installed a big frame covered by large transparent plastic sheets suspended on the frame.This is what creates the weird textures all around the character.We put different color spotlights that was reflecting on the plastic.I used the Photoshop Liquify filter to correct some imperfections.And voilà.Hoping that you will appreciate this new art portrait.

Hi Michel,
I am very impressed with your thought process in creating this whimsical and imaginative image. It is well conceived and executed. Your artistic style is inherently apparent here, quite commendable. Tech details appear optimum and flawless. Best regards...Danilo

Salut Michel,

Toujours fidèle à tes expérimentations à ce que je vois et c'est toujours aussi réussi.


Super creative and unique, with excellent results. I like how the light and plastic have created such interesting color patterns. Serge seems to enjoy getting into his role as the creature and his body language fits it well:) Great imagination and setup, and well done!

Hi Michel,
I envy your creativity.
Great artistic shot. Perfect imagination

Bonjour Michel,
Il ne manque qu'un scénario pour faire de cette image un excitant thriller.
Je n'aimerais pas rencontrer cette créature sur mon chemin. Cela donne froid dans le dos.
Bravo pour le montage du décor, la composition et le travail avec le filtre. Un style reconnaissable entre mille.
Excellent! Annie

Another beautiful result of one of your interesting experiments.


Bonjour Michel,
Travail excellent avec cette composition,
Belles couleurs et présentation,
beau contraste et et lumière..

i love the idea, however weird it is. nice concept as always michel


i a n

Definitely an interesting idea, and rewarding results for the pp work. I think the image would have looked equally interesting with less pp work, as you had a very creative idea to start with. Congrats and best reagards,

Hi Michel,

As if a caracter has been frozen in a huge block of ice and now emerges to the outside world.

The things you come up with! A very creative mind you have.
A bit spooky . .

Superb attempt. we usually dont like the Over exposure and noisy picture cos it looks like a very low quality, but I like this one. good job


Hello Michel.

Thanks to out group "Artworkers" I discovered your beautiful, unusual gallery. The reason I am writing on this photo is just because it is the last posted but it would'n be mistake if I wrote on any other.

What I am writing is almost universal and I could write it all over again on your images. Your shots are refreshing and different and I am really enjoying looking at them. In a time that comes I will visiting more often and I will write critiques to your earlier works too.

I hope we'll have nice conversations in the future.

All the best,
Artworker pal, David :-)

Salut Michel
Plutôt inquiétante cette créature. Les effets de couleurs sur le plastique sont déments et l'ensemble restitue une ambiance dès plus cauchemardesque. Vraiment du bon boulot. Bravo.

Salut Michel,
On croirait voir apparaitre un personnage, tiré d'un film de science-fiction. Comme a ton habitude, toujours aussi unique. Je crois qu'un critique d'un point de vue technique, te serais inutile...))) alors j'm'en tiens a mon impression.....Superbe...j'aime beaucoup.

Ciao Michel

Your post is unique and great style!
I like the colors, of shapes and versatility of how
you make them leave!
Full of details and colors, a good pp my friend ...
Congratulations and a great week!


Hi Michel,

Very impressive effect and good notes. This creature, and your HPP are both beyond my realm, but I certainly enjoy visiting your gallery. Thanks.

Kind regards,

I'm coming back to TL time to time to see what's going on.. :) and always amazed by how you play with lights and colours!! Great!!

Excellent creative art work. Good saturation. Wonderful silhouette effect.

Hi michel

I was in Las Vegas on November 14, last year, so I missed this one. Superb pp work, with fantastic graphism & colour contrasts. Have a nice weekend!
