...and having finished eating, blood clotting
around her mouth, shreds of torn flesh
from her meal still clinging to her skin, she
settled back in her soft leather chair
...and lit a cigarette.


Do cannibals sit and have a cigarette after dinner? What
do they eat for dessert? Is it accepted in polite society for
one to smoke without first removing blood clots and bits
of flesh from around their mouth?
All rhetorical questions...


Disclaimer
The blood is fake (made from glycerine and red and blue
food dye), and the clots and flesh bits were sculpted from
tissue paper soaked in fake blood. I do not eat people, raw
or otherwise. No people (or parts thereof) were injured in

This picture really grabs anybody's attention. its grotesque, depressing, yet is portrayed in such a way it looks almost beautiful. the artist has had at least a minimal practice in stage makeup; there are hardly any imperfections (that I can point out.) The upper lip looks a bit pasty/peeling, but its hardly noticeable. over all, the makeup is just awesome and would get an A from me.
I like the lip ring. its not the main object in this picture, yet its whats in focus. the cigarette being the main object, is out of focus. its a good combination and it keeps the eye moving back and fourth instead of just staring at one area for 5 minutes.
i like the fact that the cigarette is half-smoked, and drenched with blood. it implies how long the person has been sitting there like that, making an even larger impact.
The negative part of this picture is that the color is a bit uniform. maybe its just me, but i think a bit of a whiter skin would make a great contrast with this deep blood red.
over all, i think this is an amazing photo. great job. :D

This is a really intriguing idea.
You gave me a llama, and I thank you for it. Said llama is currently enjoying chocolate chip cookies while sitting next to me on the couch. He's spilling crumbs all over the laptop but it's okay cause he's on DA too. Just wanted to let you know.

There's a scientific question - are cigarettes more dangerous than razorblades?

As items it depends how you use them, on their own they are harmless as objects, if you smoke/eat them respectively, they can both be lethal :P

I've always really enjoyed horror as a genre and even though I rarely have the opportunity to do it for work-photography, it's one of my favourite types of recreational art.

I smoke after sex, how and/or why would smoking after eating people be any different?! That's how I see it anyway. And what do you mean, "what do they eat for desert"?!?!? Lady fingers of course! Ha!

unique, chilling, dark
this has the ingredients of a great photo, and you couldn't have pulled it off in a more perfect fashion
the depth is exactly right, the lighting perfect and the gore flawless
probably my favourite photo on DA right now

The gory bits were very much experimental and I'm really glad they worked. Since taking this I've come into possession of a horror effects make-up kit (thanks to a very generous make-up artist friend!) but bleeding flesh made from toilet roll and food dye will always have a special place in my heart. So to speak ;)
