The inspiration for the image came from a previous job where we created CG hair for an Entrix campaign. We decided to create a series of portraits made from the world's environments. In the first image, we took inspiration from the sea using a coral reef that has taken many sea captains lives. Giving a ghost like appearance to the image and replacing the hair with coral allowed us to achieve our goal.

Photoshoot & Inspiration/Art Direction

For this aesthetic we sought a look that was unique but recognizable. The final direction drew inspiration from tribal colors, materials, and looks. This look gave way to a unique combination of the coral theme and tribalism.
