this shot is inspired by one that i saw in a magazine somet time ago. but it was a food article and the girl was tasting chocolate. i first thought i'd go with chocolate as well, and there would've been a fun twist when everyone expects it to be blood. but i'm boring and so i wen't with my typical thing... and i gotta say i like it.
i wanted a smile that would give a hint of the pleasure she gets from tasting that fresh and warm blood. or maybe it's also pleasure from what she just did? and wonder what that might be?
the blood is partly coagulated hence the darker spots in it etc. (blood's natural behavior) i use fakeblood that i buy from a theatre supply store.
