Bleeding Through

I have been following the work of Invisible Creature for quite some time now. They sit atop the music packaging/artwork game – stunning photography, pitch-perfect typography, and an endless array of vastly different styles. These guys know how to put together a finished product!

Bleeding Through’s album, The Truth featured some of Creature’s most eye-popping photos, so I was excited when I came across a blog where they revealed their processes for creating them.

First they photographed the band covered in a goo made primarily of chocolate syrup and buckets of red dye. They weren’t too concerned with the color of the goo because they already knew the final product was going to be black and white (I really respect pre-planning like this).

Next they covered styrofoam with the same goo and chunks of animal meat which were also photographed from the same angles as the models (again, this takes pre-planning folks). The last step was simply a matter of compositing the shots of the models and the shots of the meat together – boom – it was done.

Head over to Headbangers Blog for a more detailed walk-through of the artwork!

Then head over to Invisible Creature for some serious inspiration. Warning: You will spend a good hour or so here screen cap’ing their entire portfolio for reference.
