Callisto and I had agreed on a theme for the shoot: Dark, very dark! That did leave a lot of room for creative interpretation.
Callisto is no stranger to shiny, sharp objects, i.e. knives and swords. It just so happens, Petri had everything we needed.

The shoot went very well. Callisto is great fun to work with, and so is Petri.
|Throg the Troll's Last Mistake|
As you might suspect, Tristan the T-Rex and Throg the Troll have got a bit of makeup.

As you can see, the technique works very well. The Throg the Troll doll has much less texture than the T-Rex, so he required more work in post.
I'll write a detailed tutorial about how to create pictures like this in a photo book I am working on. I will of course write about the Dream Warrior picture too.
Be seeing you!
