“I fear no man, no beast or evil, brother. ~ Hulk Hogan
Originally my plan was to have the last shot of the week a battle between Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan, but then I decided against it. I did like this test shot however so I figured lets give all my fans a bit of a bonus!
“It is the mark of a great man that he puts to flight all ordinary calculations. He is at once sublime and touching, childlike and of the race of giants.” ~ Honore de Balzac
“It’s bad to kill. Guns kill. And you don’t have to be a gun. You are what you choose to be. You choose. Choose.” ~ Hogarth Hughes
“When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.” ~ David Icke
I wanted to show how the compositing process can go for the final photograph on Sunday. As you can see I’ve taken the photograph on the left and the right and combined them into the photograph in the center. Next on the list will be touching up the figure, doing some detail work, then its off to be added to its new background.
“We are the music-makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.
With wonderful deathless ditties
We build up the world’s great cities,
And out of a fabulous story
We fashion an empire’s glory:
One man with a dream, at pleasure,
Shall go forth and conquer a crown;
And three with a new song’s measure
Can trample an empire down.
We, in the ages lying
In the buried past of the earth,
Built Nineveh with our sighing,
And Babel itself with our mirth;
And o’erthrew them with prophesying
To the old of the new world’s worth;
For each age is a dream that is dying,
Or one that is coming to birth.”
Arthur William Edgar O’Shaughnessy
“You’re made of metal, but you have feelings, and you think about things, and that means you have a soul. And souls don’t die.” ~ Hogarth Hughes

“Your days are short here; this is the last of your springs. And now in the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven. You will go away with old, good friends. And don’t forget when you leave why you came.” ~ Adlai E. Stevenson
