Fifth Vision of the Revenant Cycle - Working Notes

The Fifth Vision of the Revenant Cycle veers off from examining some of the Spirits that exist on the each side of the archway and looks at one of the Guardians of the Revenant Archways. This stately faerie creature controls who can pass from one world to the next. The guardians can be angry creatures who jealously guard the archways between the worlds. They control entry through the Guardian Scepter which each carries. There are two kinds of scepters. The tree scepter is part of the living world tree that spans between each universe. The crystal scepter controls is part of the great crystal which the world tree rests upon.

Into this world of spirits and faeries model Clarence Ramee from New Orleans will dawn the raiment of the Guardian on October 17th.

Special pieces are being created for this shoot including a special scepter and a headpiece both made from Mississippi River driftwood. It should be a great session of art and photography! You can follow it here on this page or if you are local to the New Orleans area you are welcome to attend the session live.

Watch here for more updates and developmental photos of the accessory pieces being created for this shoot.

UPDATE 10-19-15

Unfortunately during this whole session I was sick as a dog. You will not by the date that its already been several days since the session took place and I am just now feeling strong enough to post some of the prep photos. From what my assistant tells me I did a good job but in all honesty I was on auto pilot the whole time and don't remember much about it.

Reviewing the photo work I am pleased with the initial results. We will see what we end up with once the hardest part of the artistic work is complete. Here are the raw unedited prep photos. You will note there are only two prep photos as I was too sick to even take too many.

You will note in the prep photos that I merged him into the background which was a bit more elaborate later in the prep work.

Here is the first of the finished art for this session. More to follow in the coming days.
