Ok so I get this request from some guy who wants me to take his picture and make him look like a vampire. never done this before, so I call my best friend to practice on and this is what I came up with. I added fangs, dark eyes and other PP

You could even take it darker, and increase the length of the fangs.
But looks awesome and convincing as it is.


Anyone know anything anywhere anymore?

I think you did well! The off-skew angle and (I'm assuming) desaturation really help set the mood.

Just to be awkward (:D), I thought the fangs were the canines and not the incisors? *Shrugs*

Pretty cool, but I am not a fan of the square crop, I think it would look better as a standard portrait crop.

Definately add length to the fangs and maybe color the eyes red.

Oh no- don't colour the eyes red- I think they're the best bit- very spooky

I like the square crop, and I agree a little more fang length would be good. I know of a tutorial on it, here (external link). Perhaps even add a bit of blod on the corners of the mouth or something? Otherwise, great shot.

My 2 cents.........
I like the crop, the angle, the desaturation.

The image is lacking in the following, IMHO:
The skin softening doesn't work for me at all. Takes a lot away from the picture. A vampire IMO should have clammy skin, a gritty look.
Did you photoshop the dark circles or did they get smudged during the skin softening?

Maybe try using more harsh lighting.....dark, harsh shadows will emphasize the menacing look.

I like the more subtle fangs - it is more convincing to me.
