Attack on Titan: A Choice With No Regrets by behindinfinity Attack on Titan: A Choice With No Regrets by behindinfinity

series: Shingeki no Kyojin (Attack on Titan)
:iconreskiy: Resh as Erwin Smith
:iconbehindinfinity: Jin as Levi
:camera: photo by merkymerx
:bulletblack: post-processing by behindinfinity

The visual concept for this photo was to capture the feeling of a military portrait in the style of oil paintings from around the Baroque era. We love the uniform design in Shingeki no Kyojin so it was a great opportunity to experiment with this photo style for this cosplay! While posing for this, merkymerx directed us in this manner: "Okay Erwin, you do the Napoleon pose and Levi, you just stand there and look like you're going 'Are we done here?'" :lol:

Fun fact: Reskiy often prefers to be behind the camera and takes pictures and videos for our group of friends. So it's cool that he's in front of it this time! This is his very first cosplay, too!

This is our real height difference. We’re both about as tall (or in my case, short) as our characters.

Hi, this picture inspired me to try a painting effect on my Hanji cosplay photo, but now that I look at yours again it looks really similar. :o I hope you don't mind. I already credited you

I was going to say something that's sounded really smart but these are some of the best cosplays I've seen so I just kinda fangirled. Faved Sign

I love the art style of this photo. Love your cosplays, and love the artistic interpretations put into the photographs themselves :heart:

Oh wow, I have a hard time recognizing that that's you! Even now, that I know it's you... Very impressively done, Jin!

I don't mind being as tall (or as short) as Levi. I'm about the same height as Historia, haha! At least I'm deceptively strong. Cute, but deadly some of my guy friends say. But anyways, getting back to the actual cosplay pic: Super love! The concept! The make-up! To see the comparison in your height side by side in one picture--and how you two resemble the characters so well--I just can't! I feel completely blown away by the picture! Hopefully, we can get to see more of Reskiy in front of the camera too! Think you can coax him into doing more cosplays or use him as a subject for a different photography project? Meow :3

Erwin: *serious pose*
Levi: *sassy*
Love it.  And it really does look like a portrait, especially looking at your face.

*dies* You two are amazing. Levi might be my favorite of your SnK cosplays (though Eren is a close second xD) The way you did your makeup for him is just so perfect. It helps that both of your facial structures are already suitable to the characters, but the way you've accentuated them with brilliant use of makeup (and probably lighting) is just super cool. And the height difference just makes it that much more awesome. I love how (because your irises are larger than his normally are) Levi looks a bit like an aggravated little doe. xDD

You guys make the most perfect Levi and Erwin I've ever seen :iconchuuplz: I adore this picture!
