EDIT I was blown away to find that I had won a place in the contest. I have seen a lot of really awesome entries and I do believe that more of the "just makeup" entries should have placed. as a lot of people mention. and it is not particularly fair that photoshop users tend to be favored in contests and such. But it kind of irks me when people complain that prosthetics aren't masks or are "too easy"
I didn't go to school for makeup at all. not at ALL. I decided one day to spend some of my commission money to purchase some mask latex, some plasteline clay, some plaster and a plastic face form to begin working on making prosthetics any way I knew how. basically from looking really hard at how it's done through stuff on the internet. This process was not easy. sure. I could have just sculpted the original face out of oven bake clay or something and it probably wouldn't have been so ridiculed in such a way?? you think that's harder? I made the sculpt, made a mold out of plaster, made seperate molds for the gills. put it all together after I casted it in pigmented latex. painted the thing... put it on with a little spirit gum, and some random normal eyeshadow to blend it into my face which is all I had. I am NOT a skilled prosthetic maker or wearer. so you can get that out of your head right off the bat. lol. ----------------------------------------------------
This is for the contest... the mask is made by me can be seen here [link] ...so is that cute little necklace hehe.
Maccus is a character of mine, he is part of a story that I did called "Masters of the Night" I never finished the story I just have sketches in notebooks and stuff but here in dA I have some drawings of him: fav.me/d2ptgirfav.me/d2sdkmzfav.me/d2rxrtefav.me/d2pltocfav.me/d2w2zua About him: He is the bad guy and he trick the girl of the story, she is cursed and he promised her to save her if she becomes one of his " night butterflies". He's a guy who doesn´t care about others. he have magical powers that only works at night, in the story he is the one that let cross to our world the nightmares xD But well for this contest I did him crying cause if he would be a good guy in the story... the girl would never break her curse, if he would be a good guy he would be human ( he is not exactly a human...) and if he would be a human Im sure that he would be sorry for the girl D: and it would be a very sad story >A>! SO~ I did the bad guy turn into a good guy but because of that the girl dont have a happy ending... sorry D: xD Wish me good luck in the contest >^<!!
Me as the cheshire cat. Eh, it was either this or the Mad Hatter and I'm so bad at drawing people there was really no choice. Anyway, it's a bit darker than I expected, which is mostly due to the scannner. Yeah, this isn't my usual medium, i was messing with crayons and black construction paper. Might do more like this. it ws very fun. Still, way darker than i wanted. I drew this yesterday while watching a marathon of Primeval. And I've never drawn any version of the Cheshire Cat before, i really love how he/ she turned out, i'll probably draw it again.
