A beauty study exploring shimmer, texture and video game character creation. Traditional portraiture lighting is utilized and then flipped to illuminate character profiles and a strangeness that is reserved for dark fantasy.

A KALTBLUT exclusive editorial. Photography by Cydney Cosette. The models are Jonah Folks and Michael Matthews. Art direction and hair and makeup by Belene Garza.
