Whiskerino 2009

flainez

throws caution to the conventions of everyday society.

Behold the living whiskerino icon!


To make this one I painted my face in white (including a little part of the beard below my mouth, to resemble more the icon), boosted the exposition adjustment to +5 ev and put a really strong output in my flash. I had to find an equilibrium between too much light and too little, because my hair and beard started to fade as well. At first it didn't work perfectly, so I had to cover my eyes and my nostrils with pieces of white paper.

...I only wish I had more hair in my head!!!

@BeardGoggles I think I like it more too, but I was thinking about doing the whiskerino icon... hmmm, to re-up or not to re-up?

Obey Maach did this last time I believe. He won King Beard.

Beard Goggles says:
don't re-up. you achieved the goal you set out to do.

my personal preference for "whoa" factor is the out-take.

Great job either way homie. you killed it.

flainez says:
@Dschonn Ouch! This is a clamebute then, thanks for the info!... Looking at his picture I see he used a piece of paper for the mouth as well, I tried that too but for me it was doing more shadows than just painting my lips white...

Fincannon says:
you kind of look like a ghost with a beard. bearded ghosts are awesome. i did an icon pic today too, thats kind of odd. yours is more professional looking and better.

Tolleson says:
I completely missed this yesterday. It would have received a heavy King vote from me and for that, I do apologize for failing to notice.

Interestingly enough, I -did- come across @obeymaach's king of this for the last Whiskerino (CLAME). I shall consider my offering for today a clamebute to you both. As well, doing this in-camera is incredible!
