Hammer Time by Xerces Hammer Time by Xerces
STOP!
HAMMER TIME
:P

Well, a geologist has to get their anger out sometimes.

Alas, this beautiful piece of metal is not mine. I have a much more petite rock hammer. I got the loan of this rock hammer from one of my bosses at work. How cool is that?!
It was returned to the toolbox free of juicy syrup :P

This was one of the few horror shoots I got to do with *Herr-Flick and *silverbolt2012 recently, and this was something I rustled up when seeing this rather brutal rock hammer at work. The dust mask and the goggles are part of my safety kit at work, (although these ones are my own) even if the goggles are optional.
I decided not to show the bloody mess he might be creating, but instead let the viewer conjure up the image. I may follow it up at some point with my interpretation ;-)

Model: *silverbolt2012
Respect, kthnx

I would like to say thank you for modelling, and also thanks for letting me spatter you with blood :heart:

I know this is going to sound really wrong, but that hammer is so cute! I saw a gorgeous tiny hammer in asda last night during a late-night shopping mission and totally fell in love with it. I said "That would be perfect for...umm..." and then realised that I shouldn't buy the hammer.

hehe! I do have those thoughts sometimes, but i usually end up buying the things anyway! My rock hammer is really petite and has a wooden handle- not too good for bloody work. This one worked a treat, however! Glad you like!
Have you been to the halloween section in Asda yet? I picked up myself a fake heart!

I haven't had a chance to do Asda halloween stuff yet, but am definitely going to. There's a big 24 hour Asda about 5 minutes from where I live so I can go on a mission at stupid o'clock at night for cool things to play with.

Well, to be fair, it's only the back garden wall/concrete fence. I should have moved the model to the left a little- there was plenty of blood on there, but this angle looked better >.<

Ooh, that's nasty! The effect is spectacular, and seeing the "result" would never live up to the imagined carnage!

Well, as long as you wait a while, because to do it too soon would quite spoil the impact (excuse the pun) of this one. And you're welcome! :)

:giggle: I imagine it'll take me a while to get it done anyway- models are hard to come by! Perhaps I would do the same 'other side' image for one of my other photos before i attempt one for this =D

Fair call. But models hard to come by? I can't imagine that! Who wouldn't want to be covered in fake blood and be photographed with mortal wounds? :lol: Hehe - maybe a slightly less ambitious one to start with, you mean? :)
