ATLA: Zuko's Scar by Green-Makakas ATLA: Zuko's Scar by Green-Makakas
ATLA: Zuko Test by Green-Makakas LoK: Hommage to Lin Beifong SPOILER by Green-Makakas LoK: Farewell Father by Green-Makakas

We bought a new flash and wanted to try some home-studio lightning portraits with a self-made softbox.
Making a really gross scar for Zuko has been another thing we were really dying to try out for a few months now. And so we thought, why not combine it?

The idea was to portrait the moment Zuko has first seen his injury. Thus, he's still got the hairstyle from his childhood flashbacks.

Loved to work with dramatic lightning, btw. I'm sure we'll experiment some more with it.

a lil thick and a bit too crusty on the scar but the idea is there :) I got badly burnt by an extreemly hot woodstove metal when i tripped, so i know the scar will be a bit crusty at first but the texture is quite gleeming and not too bad once its healed.

You're right, it's not all that realistic. Thanks for advice! And ouch, that sounds painful...
We were rather going for an immitation of Zuko's scar in the series, not for the way a real scar would look.

Very nice job! The make is up is deadly realistic, and the lighting is good enough. But just one this concerns me.... Did a girl play zuko in this photo? Just asking...

Die Narbe an sich ist cool gemacht, aber ich finde das Loch für das Auge sollte größer sein. Zukos Auge ist deformiert, aber es ist immernoch sichtbar. Bei dir leider nicht. Zudem finde ich, dass der rest des Make ups dich unheimlich weiblich aussehen lässt und ich finde deinen Gesichtsausdruck in erster Linie emotionslos. Ich hätte eher was mehr überraschtes, geschocktes oder vielleicht sogar angeekeltes erwartet.
Das Licht find ich allerdings wirklich toll. Es sieht super aus und unterstreicht das Bild an sich. Durch den Gelbstich auf der Haut hat es auch was von Feuer, was natürlich hervorragend passt. Alles in allem ein hübsches Bild ^^ Ich bin auf mehr gespannt.

Danke für so eine ausführliche Kritik! Das Make Up haben wir zum ersten Mal aufgetragen und ausprobiert, jetzt wissen wir auch, was wir verbessern können. Mit dem Auge war das eher so, dass wir dachten, dass es jetzt womöglich vollständig so aussehen könnte, weil die Narbe noch sehr frisch ist. Allerding werden wir sie für den "normalen" ( XD ) Zuko kleiner machen, sodass auch das Auge sichtbar wird. Morgen machen wir noch ein Bild, ich hoffe, dass wir uns verbessern können!

Bei dem Gesichtsausdruck hatten wir recht viele Bilder, unter denen wir aussuchen konnten, das eine gefiel uns am meisten. Manchmal ist es etwas schwer, Emotionen so rüberzubringen, sodass sie auch für anderen genauso... "nachempfindbar" sind :D Trotzdem danke für den Tipp! Wir werden die Tipps berücksichtigen und wollen eh noch ein Testbild machen, vor allem, weil wir den Zuko mit seinen wuscheligen Haaren eigentlich machen wollen.
