I thought “Halloween is tomorrow, how about using blood red with flesh colored paint?”
This paint splatter could be called “The Body Worlds Exhibit: Home Edition.”

I thought this photo needed more splat, so I stole some from this photo.
Masked in some more splat…
Moves some stuff to the left to keep the photo balanced.
Eliminated the base…
Added back the reflection I masked out before,
Raised up the saturation…
Then fixed the levels a bit.
As usual, its the close-up detail I like, but you can’t really see it unless you zoom into the full resolution file… Someday I’ll print one of these out five feet wide so I can really take it in.
The photo kinda ended up looking gross… Maybe next year I’ll get a little plastic skeleton to stand on the speaker.
