A translucent liquid streams down the chin and neck of a pale-skinned person. The close-up image depicts only the person's neck, collarbones, and jawline.
In a dark, cool-toned image, a masculine person looks straight upwards, revealing the underside of their jaw and the entirety of their neck. Two distinct rivulets of liquid trickle down the person's neck, with other droplets of liquid scattered across the visible portion of their collarbones and chest. The liquid glistens from reflected light. The background consists only of a solid blue-black color.
