    Oliviera
    Among all things.. she had to be so nice. I've seen a lot in my journeys and she is just a victim of the oddity of this earth.
    There are countries specialised in breeding "good men" - where women are ugly and masculine and if you have a daughter is not such a nice event.
    Yet there.. she was pretty and feminine... until she reached 17.
    Then... her problem begun. Her liver grew to an inrcedible size... and complications were... not to be understood.
    She is 45 now.. still holds the nice and kind features on her tiered face... but the rest... well... it's for you to imagine.
    Now... concept!



    Topic elements:
    1 = present day (movie like concept)
    2 = dramatic
    Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
    2 extra votes will be offered for the description.

    I wanted a very specific topic since i think we had enough.. B-movie and classical "waw" topics. we'll be back to that next week .. i have a good one ... standing by.
    this job.. is for a scene in a movie by Spielberg. So... it has to be between grotesque and striking.. yet... we should see the DRAMA here, more then the freakyness. this is not the main character, yet we want each scene to be remembered.

    Well, I couldn't finish this one ....I'm out.

    CHOW#36 - Oliveria

    After Oliverias liver became to large for her body, it was removed and placed in a container and conected to her and was still able to function. Then her body began rejecting her all of her organs, so one by one doctors removed her organs, placed them in containers and reconnected them with tubes from outside her body. As a side effect of this, her skin was starting to fuse together all of her limbs, until she becomes a giant meatball.

    [anouncement:] I'm not a doctor, but I play one on tv. I believe the answer you seek is called hepatomegaly. Hepato = liver, megaly = enlarged. Here's a wikipedia link for you:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hepatomegaly
    So, just think what havok is wreaked on the liver could also present on the body...be creative and remember - jaundice = yellow - may be worth introducing this here.
    I've got to get back to my patients....I don't have any, but I've got some neural anatomy work to hammer out.
    Hope this is in line with the topic, and if not, well...I'm not a doctor anyway.
    Cheers!

    Here's my entry, not as good as the last one, but oh well. Oliveria had no where to turn to when her liver began enlarging. Females were not regarded highly in her society, and she was out of luck. Her torso began taking on odd forms as other organs started to enlarge. She was distraught, her beautiful figure that she would have used to find a man to protect her was gone. She ended up in a freakshow, showing her twisted body to make money. There, she met her salvation. One of the other freaks, the human stick, found her pretty face and personality attractive enough that he fell in love.. That was all in their youth. Now, they live in a trailer, the human stick has put some meat on his bones, and she runs an ebay company. At night they keep each other company in front of the warm glow of the TV.

    did I get it right when I say that this is meant to be a woman with a good-looking face and a terribly distorted, crippled, fluid-dripping, ugly body underneath?
    Something like that at least?

    hideyoshi: beats me. I'm still pretty confused. Seems as if the description is wanting us to create a dramatically-serious 45 year old woman with an enlarged liver and/or/possibly other mutations?

    Clarification, please!

    i see this as a classical film job.
    take an actor, preview make-up, think about your customer, etc.
    sure.. your vision about a scene in a DRAMA movie is your own.
    the ideea is... don;t make this a B-movie.
    pick a good actress and think if she will accept your concept...
    try to approach this .. like you really apply for the job. it's not an imagination excecise... it's more a topic to train you approach in meetig that "what the public will accept/like. What the customer realy expects... how does he think it will touch the audience."

    Update - Final:

    First final on this forum. Been dying to do it. hope you all like it! Oblio this is coming in right at 12:00 today, still typing, hope that counts!

    CHOW#36 - Oliveria

    Olivaria was struck ill at the age of seventeen; the cause and cure - unknown. Her insides began to swell to an enormous size. Her parents tried everything they could to find a cure, but to no avail. But one day, a mysterious man came by, claiming to be a healer. He offered his services, asking nothing in return. When he was finished, he left without a word. Days went by, turning into weeks and while the illness appeared to halt, the swelling never went away. It was on the day her younger brother was found nearly beaten to death that she discovered just exactly the gift the wandering healer bestowed upon her. In her grief, she laid her hands on her brother, willing him to live. And live he did. She had been given the ability to heal others, but not without a price - for every time she gave life to the person, she also took it away. In return for the immediate healing of the body, her powers required the giving up of a fraction of the lifespan of the person. And so, as long as Olivaria continues to heal, she will continue to live, young and prosperous, but marked forever by the strange growth.
