Computer Game Theme

This weeks theme for our Frozen Reflex blog was to take a photo based on a computer game of our choice.

Since I have been playing loads of Left 4 Dead 2 lately I decided to base mine on the first game.

For those who have no idea what the game is, here is the game character I played in the photo called the ‘Smoker’. He uses his long tounge to wrap around survivors from the zombie apocalypse and strangles them, usually from the top of buildings.

Since I wouldn’t be a close subject to the camera the ‘make-up’ didn’t have to be very accurate as you can see below! Also the smoker would not be this happy (ever) so im clearly not in character here!

Also note the blood on my hand in the photo above. An hour before I took my photo for this weeks theme I was rushing around getting ready and I smacked my hand on the door frame but I actually in fact hit the ‘striker plate’ the metal bit that keeps the door shut. It was bent all the way in half facing the wrong way and although only made a small cut it went really deep, I could see white fleshy stuff….. yer ouchy. As i’m typing this now it still hurts.

Here is a photo of my hand a couple of hours after I did it. This was at 8 o’clock at night, it didn’t stop bleeding properly till 10am the next morning.

The other character in my photo is called Zoey. Here is a picture of what she looks like.

Finally here is my submission to this weeks theme of  ‘computer games’.
