Statement: This project is a continuation of an earlier project that explored characters. Like the first set of images I had my models act our their characters from the game Dungeons&Dragons. People gives characters the ideal characteristics and these characteristics are innately part of their personalities.

  1. Dungeons&Dragons is a great theme idea! You could take it in a lot of different directions. Some of these models are easy to depict as champions of a fantastical world. The man in the green and the man reading the book are especially easy to interpret. My one critic would be that on the last photo, I personally dislike how half of the man’s face is in darkness, and I think a soft light could have been used on that side of him. Otherwise great stuff!

  2. I love the expressions throughout these photos. The pictures would be stronger if the expressions didn’t seem so forced and the lighting was placed in a different spot on the face.
