I took this image purely for the Canon comp. I shaved his head before painting him with black face paint. Then I superglued the matches over his head.

The tealight was blue tacked onto his finger and his tongue was moist from touching the flame. He did end up putting out the flame with his tongue.

Lighting was one light to his left and a reflector on his right.

Outstanding, and completely bizarre. Top quality. Reminds me of the Sam Neil character at the end of "Event Horizon".

This is just too cool. I hope you're paying him well... he's been on the receiving end of that strange mind of yours a lot recently ;O)
Love the light, the look, and the painstaking preparation that went into this!

I'm going to guess this is Judi's tealight entry, and having read the thread on the contest, I cannot believe this didn't make the finals - I'd have pegged it as the winner!

You could really have some fun with this when the kids come around trick or treating.

In the final test of powers, Matchhead shocked and awed the underworld when he destroyed Pinhead by doing what was considered impossible. He licked the blue out of the flame from a candle.

It was a momentous day.

A creative approach to Halloween; well lit, fitting expression.
