This was a slightly “controversial” piece as i did get a few comments/complaints on Facebook when i posted this (my response below the picture*). As mentioned on an earlier post, i love horror movies and i wanted to try a Pinhead one. I had to use a stock photo as i do not have a skinny pig, but this was so much fun to do. As with Batpig, i may do a how this was created post.
* Re: Piggie Parodies Horror collection… I admit, i did expect some negative comments on these as I do understand the horror parodies, like horror films themselves, may not be to everyones taste. But please bear in mind, it is only Photoshop and no real pigs were harmed in making any of these! Pinhead/Pighead for example, it was a multiple request and i specifically did not add clothing or other horror elements to it to keep it as “soft” as possible whilst staying true-ish to the movie character. I in no way condone mistreatment of ANY animals and i don´t even pose mine in specific poses for the photos, i take pics and if i think i can do something with it… i´ll use it. I also use stock photos for other piggies, or specific poses i like, that are all taken professionally and with utmost care. I do however draw the line at making Guinea Pigs “gore or zombiefied”, i genuinely cannot bring myself to making them look bloody or injured for these pieces (sorry folks, no Wlaking Dead parody here!) and at the end of the day i want them to be fun, even if you are not a fan of the specific genre i am parodying. I´ll also try to balance out the horror with Superhero and other fun ones.
Apologies if you do not like the Horror collection, but horror is a popular genre and artisticly a genre so much fun to do, even if a little over the line for some… but thanks so much so many positive comments, specifically with the “close to being over the line” Pinhead/Pighead.
