HYPNOTIC MELODY






(...) As the Enchanter released the powerful notes of his strange and bewitching melody, the ancient energy in that irresistible sound filled the air, growing... spreading its craft throughout the forest and all living creatures fell under his spell (...) text by Francisco Martins

Hey friends! hope that you are all well! I'm going to be committed to the hospital next Friday for a surgery in my left hip (don't ask... long story), so I'm probably going to be away from blogging for a while. Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you guys one last work that I've just finished before I go. This is my most recent photo-illustration that I did with some photos that I took last year - a sequel to my previous piece "Orpheus and the nymphs".

Many Thanks to my models: Joris Lechêne, currently represented by Best Models, and Maria Barracosa, courtesy of Liquid Consulting (thanks also to Inês Carreira for having kindly sent Maria to work in this project)

Olá amigos! Espero que estejam todos bem...

Deixo aqui imagens do meu último trabalho de foto-ilustração que desenvolvi com umas fotos que tirei o ano passado. Este painel com inspiração clássica é uma sequela da minha ilutração "Orpheus and the Nymphs" postada anteriormente aqui no blog.

Um muito obrigado aos modelos que participaram neste projecto: Joris Lechêne, de momento representado pela Best Models, e Maria Barracosa, gentilmente cedida pela Liquid Consulting (um obrigado também à Inês Carreira por ter cedido a Maria para colaborar neste projecto)

Ces disse...

NOOOOOOOOOO!!! What happened. Oh goodness. I hope you feel better soon, you beautiful darling of a man. I love this series. That is one beautiful model of a man you have in there. I know he is proficient in sarcasm. Hehe, I read his facebook profile.

Please get well soon! Tsup!

Hi Ces,
How are you doing my friend?
Thanks, i'm glad you liked this piece. hahaha Yes, Joris is a great guy. He is hilarious and very proficient in sarcasm like you said :D

About my surgery... don't worry, hopefully all will be ok. I started having pain in my left leg while attending to the gym, went to the doctor, did a CT and apparently I have a problem in my left hip since forever, but cause of the effort at the gym, it really got worse, so i need surgery. The recovery time sucks - looks like I'm not going to be able to put my left foot on the ground for 2 months. Oh well.. at least I'll have more time for blogging :D

Hope that ll is well with you and that your Sister's health is improving :)

Tsup!
