hanging by scaryjesus hanging by scaryjesus
the second in my series of execution methods. obviously, this one is hanging.

i used liquify tool on the neck to pull the rope tighter into the throat, and dropped the shoulders down to emphasize gravities pull on the body over time. also, i shaded the face, neck, sternum and ribs for that wholesome sunk-in look.

there's four methods of hanging: the short drop, suspension hanging, the standard drop, and the long drop. in the long drop, it's not uncommon for the person to be decapitated by their own body weight.

there was also an alternate method to hanging used for a short time, called the "upright jerker". as in a normal hanging, the rope would be put around the victims neck, but instead of dropping down, the person would be jerked into the air by a series of pulleys. the idea was to break the persons neck for a quicker death. since this machine wasn't effective, it was never used after 1930.

class is out. ...the more you know. ;)

texture: ~darkrose42-stock and some of my own

thanks babe! :heart:

yeah, this is one of my personal faves.

i have this one printed off, as it's gonna be in my art show, and i had a fun time explaining to dad exactly what it was. he's very technologically challenged, heh. he refers to my art as 'those funny pictures you make'. :lol: love him to death tho, hehe.

No prob, but what is it he is hanging from?
Was I way off? Also, your father seems alot
like my mother.

SHe is an amazing artist but old fashioned.
My father is the retired data security tech.
He takes more interest at times then my mother.

I think this should go in your gallery. Bold image with
soft tones, yeah, it's a winner for sure!

thanks babe!

and you were spot on. it's a digitally made butterfly. alot of the intricate detail is lost here cause i shrank it down, but it looks very cool close up.

i can't imagine having a dad who's into technology at all. he's a mechanic, so as long as he's out in the garage up to his elbows in grease, and has an AM radio on, he's peachy, heh.

mom however is like me. all into computers and cameras and dvds and stuff.

Grease monkeys are awesome, I
intend on marrying one...heh If
he survives..jk

I would like to have parents more
into the things I do but my mother
is traditional and can make anything
art.

I have to respect that. Some days
I am just in awe over what she makes..
other days I want to strangle her for it..
Her and I bicker alot but we are women
and it happens.

The butterfly is a great and soft touch, bravo!

This is realy artistic.
It's raw and soft at the same time, and really pure.
It shows hanging as you could see it in a informative book on this subject... It's almost medical.
Great work!

^^ He beat me to the comment on the strength of that butterfly. :giggle:

I only knew the 4 ways of hanging. Never heard of the upright way. Cool. I love learning something new!

Great job on this piece.
