Hunter Make-up Tutorial

Since Halloween is rapidly approaching, I think it's about time to reveal the secrets of my Hunter-make-up to you, my fellow zombies.


So, first things first:


What do you need/what did I use?

  1. Prepare your anus face by washing it. If you want the plastic part of the make-up to hold reallyreally well, you can clean the area it's applied to with some spirit gum remover but don't go too close to the eyes and be careful. Seriously, there are things that might be worth getting blind for but this is not one of them.
  2. Apply some mastix around the eye-socket. Spare the eyebrows. Put some cotton wool onto the mastix. Congrats, you now look super-retarded. But this is the base for our soft putty. As soon as it sticks, rip off most parts of the wool so there are only some few fibres.
  3. Now this is the part where things get dirteeh. Make sure you're locked away in the bathroom with no parents or roommates noticing the mess you're about to make. They might get angry.
  4. Take some of the soft putty and knead it thoroughly so it fits its name. SOFT putty. Apply it to those areas of your face that look retarded- whoops no not all over your face I meant where you put the wool. Around the eye-area, but not touching the eyelids. As I said yet, this is messy and it's no fun and it sucks. But it's a neccessary evil.
  5. Wondered why you can't apply it smoothly? This is what we got our dear sweet baby oil for. Seriously that stuff's the best thing that yould have happened to you in this situation. I hope you really got it here. I TOLD YOU DAWG. So, you take a bit baby oil and rub it over the putty on your face. Oooooh miracles, that stuff is really getting somewhere close to smooth! Smoothen everything out with baby oil, so there is a soft gradation from your skin to the soft putty.
  6. Now you can destroy your new face. Take the spatula and poke around in your newly gained skin, starting in the middle of the applied putty, so the edges remain smooth and need. It should look like it's your skin torn open, remember??
  7. If you have this finished, you take some transparent powder and powder the fuck out of the putty. Poof Poof bitches. Powder everywhere. Another reason why to lock everyone out of the bathroom.
  8. Now we get down to business. Put some skin cream on your face and let your skin absorb it so the grease paint can be applied smoothly.
  9. Take your corpse-skintone and a sponge, put some water on the sponge and paint your face, neck and the smooth part of the putty corpse (that's a color now). It works the best if you only dap the sponge to your skin and don't smear it all over.
  10. You think you look really unhealthy now? Nope, you don't. You just look like a person with an eyedisease and a bad skintone. I'll tell you how to look really unhealthy. Mix a shadow-color. I normally use the corpse-tone as a base and then put in small amounts of green, blue and black.
  11. Put these on as shadows, like under your nose, under your lips, under your cheekbones on the sides of your nose, the sides of your skull, under your eyes onto the flat part of the putty- and create an even gradation from corpse to shadowcorpse.
  12. This looks worse and by worse I mean better. Now you need some lights. I normally use the highlights to add a bit of pink, as the last leftovers of blood in the skin, but really, don't use too much pink in the mix that will look like "UGUUU KUWAII ZOMBIECHAN DESU NE". So be careful with that, or only mix white and yellow into the corpse tone.
  13. Put the lights on the bridge and tip of your nose, tip of your chin and forehead, cheekbones, the higher parts of the putty.
  14. Take the small brush and mix some blue and red and green + corpse to draw some finer veins. for me thats the part that is the most fun. Add shadows beneath the veins.
  15. Now you mix the color for the eyewounds. There is one thing that's important: Never use pure red or only red+black. You should mix red with a bit of blue to have the color of a rose and then you put a a bit of black in the mix until it's a nice and gorey color. Think of raw steaks or something.
  16. Take the cat-tongue brush to paint your eyelids and the raw part of the putty with it.
  17. Blend some black in the current tone you got and you can create shadows. Put it into the edges and deeper parts of the wounds you have created and around the eyelids.
  18. Take a gross yellowish tone to add a fat layer where the "skin is ripped open". This is of you want to be really anatomically correct.
  19. blend your flesh-colored tone with white and add some highlights to the higher parts of your "wounds". Niiice they're finished now!
  20. Now you can decide whether you really want the Hunter's rapist beard. If yes, mix a very dark grey and a bright grey. Dap the stipple sponge in both of them and test the color on your arm. Okay stubbles? then put it in your face and the neck area. Take the pic of a bearded man as a reference.
  21. When this is done, you take the powder brush and powder transparent powder over it. DAP the sponge onto your skin. Don't smear the make-up!
  22. Take some fake blood onto your hand and dap a bit of it onto the wounds, without getting it in the eyes. Don't use too much or you will look like the douchy blood-crying lead-singer of a completely horrible gothic band. Some can flow to the sides that's okay, but don't use too much of it!
  23. Apply a bit to your lips, so they look a little ripped open or like you just had dinner. Don't use it as lipstick. Don't make the typical animu-deathscene line of blood running down from the corner of your mouth to your chin. Even put some around the nostril, I think that looks super-badass.
  24. FINISHED! Now if you're a really badass dude you can chew on a blood capsule and blood-drool everywhere.
  25. HAPPY HUNTING


And this is how it looks in practice

gemstone tutorial

Wed Jan 2, 2013, 12:32 PM
◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :facebook: Naraku on Facebook ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊
 ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊ :twitter: Naraku on Twitter ◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊◊


How difficult it always is, to get stones for a costume in the right color, size and shape.

That's why I uploaded this tutorial today: How to make gems.

.
.
.

How to work step by step:


STEP 1



What materials do you need:

- resin and hardener
- tinting paint
- cups and spoons/ chopsticks to stir
- maybe a scale
- silicone mold for/ of stones (I bought it on etsy)
- aluminium foil
- scissors


STEP 2



~ Note:
With water I could find out how much resin I needed later.
For more quantities, you can mark a line with a pencil on the cup. ~

For my stone I need only 1 tablespoon of resin (= 8g)
For more quantities the weight is important. See step 3


STEP 3



To get some colorful stones you can use tinting paint. I use a simple green color.
Sometimes you need one or two colortests to get the right mixture ratio.

For a beautiful transparent green I need a half-drop.
Mixing the tinting paint with the resin thoroughly.

When you are finished you can add the hardener. For the stone, it was about 10 drops.
Each resin has a guide with a resin-hardener mixture ratio. For more quantities, you can calculate out at the scale of how much you need to mix hardener based on the weight.  Otherwise, simply by touch.
Mix it again now.


STEP 4



Pour everything in the mold of your choice. With the spoon you can get every last drop out of the cup.

Tip: if you have too much resin in the cup, pour it into a second form. So all is well used.


STEP 5



Cut out the foil a rough shape of the stone. Something bigger than the stone itself!
And put it on it.

Now just wait until everything is fixed.
Tip: A warm place speed up the drying.

STEP 6



In approximately less than an hour the stone should be completely dry.
Take it out of the mold. If it is still a little sicky dry it with a hair dryer. Wait 5 minutes and cut the excess foil.

The stone is done ❤

Fri Dec 14, 2012, 12:22 AM
On the 27th December 2012, my book Adobe Master Class: Illustrator will be published! Published by Adobe Press/Peachpit... I'm so excited :D



Here's a description of the book:
This beautiful art showcase book from Adobe Press features 30 established and emerging Illustrator artists, their masterful work, and tutorials demonstrating their techniques for using Adobe Illustrator. Curated by one of Adobe's and the Illustrator community's premiere Illustrator mavens, Sharon Milne, this book features an inspiring collection of innovative Illustrator artists and their amazing artwork. The illustrations represent a mix of techniques and styles and are field-defining works that demonstrate technical excellence and awe-inspiring aesthetics. Readers will also appreciate the artists commentary about their inspiration and philosophy about their art. In addition to the art showcase, this book includes several tutorial projects that teach techniques for working in Illustrator. The how-to content, comprising 25 to 30 percent of the book, is based on general Illustrator features, so this book can be useful for users of recent and future versions of the Illustrator software.

I had to have emergency surgery this weekend to remove my appendix, so not only did I miss HeroesCon but I'm also on forced bed rest for the next little while. That means I had lots of time to write up some tips for cosplayers to prepare for a convention.

Tips on how to safely navigate a convention as a cosplayer - Part 1

Part 2 will be posted later this week, so check back soon!

Speedpaint Tips: Getting Started!

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 4, 2012, 12:49 AM
In the interest of helping people who are new to speedpainting get started, and also in the interest of getting tips and tricks out in the open that might be helpful to even those who have done it a while, I'm opening this Journal entry up to the group to post your speedpainting techniques to share with the group!

Guidelines for posting (I believe this will help keep the thread readable to those coming in):

1) Give your technique a title

2) Provide a description with as much detail as is necessary to allow someone to try the technique and obtain some success with it

3) If possible, provide a link to examples that use this technique, and indicate how the technique was used

4) Please only include one tip per post

5) You may ABSOLUTELY respond to other people's posts, ask questions, and extend the tips! As this isn't a forum, please make sure you respond to the right posts when asking a question, or the original author might not see it! Questions should ONLY go under existing tips though. Stray questions (not posted under existing tips) will be deleted so there's some measure of order to what could otherwise become a rather disorderly Journal. :)

I'll start out with an example (below).

Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I last checked in. In fact, it's been so long that I just realised I never posted the cosplay interview I did here (and that was in January!). Japan Cinema invited me to chat to them for a while for their cosplay corner - if you're interested, you can read about it over here.

In other news, I have finally gotten around to doing a photoshoot for Rapunzel! Thank you so much to :iconstrawdoll: for being such an amazing photographer...you're so nice to me :'D And so, since I'm about to attack you all with photos, I figured it would be a great time to finally, finally post the FAQ I've been promising for her wig. Here we go!


Rapunzel: Outside Looking In by echoing-artemisRapunzel: With the Best Intentions by echoing-artemisRapunzel: Just Like I Dreamed by echoing-artemis

RAPUNZEL'S WIG - THE FAQ

Oh my god, is that your real hair?

Er, no. Really, really no.

It must be really heavy then! How much does it weigh?

This is hands down the most common question I hear. I finally, finally weighed it today: 1.48kg (or 3.26 lbs). Actually not as bad as I might have guessed!

That's still pretty heavy. How does it stay on your head?

Just a few bobby pins! Sometimes it slips backwards a little, but that's only if I've been in too much of a hurry to pin it properly.

Does it hurt?

Ha ha not at all! I get a little paranoid about moving my head around too much, so I might seem a little stiffer than usual, but that's the worst it does. I always pack pain killers just in case when I wear it, but I haven't needed them yet!

How on earth did you make it?

I heard this question so often I actually made a tutorial for the process. You can find it over here:
Rapunzel's Wig Tutorial 1 by echoing-artemisRapunzel's Wig Tutorial 2 by echoing-artemisRapunzel's Wig Tutorial 3 by echoing-artemisRapunzel's Wig Tutorial 4 by echoing-artemisRapunzel's Wig Tutorial 5 by echoing-artemis

Wait, five wigs? Why on earth didn't you just use fewer, longer wigs?

For me, colour was the absolute priority. Rapunzel has gorgeous, shining, golden blonde hair and I wanted to capture that - platinum, ash, white or orange blonde just wasn't going to cut it for me. So I spent a long time wig shopping, but in the end was only happy with the colour of the one I chose.

If you don't mind so much about the colour (or if you're luckier than I am and find the perfect colour in a longer wig!), you can of course use longer wigs. I have seen some do exactly that...although sometimes they warn that longer wigs are much harder to comb/manage! So that's something to keep in mind too.

Which wig, exactly, did you end up buying?

I bought it off ebay, where they still sell the exact same wig for a little under $20/wig. Another lovely cosplayer (:iconraimeithunderchild:) mentioned that you can haggle to get five for the price of four!

My extensions were from ikickshins.net. They're super cheap, at $2.75/bag. I bought three bags of KK Jumbo Braid in #144 Gold. I think they're 48" long - I didn't trim mine at all, but obviously it will depend on your height.

Hmmm, those prices don't seem too bad. How much did it cost you overall?

Including all the fake flowers, probably between AU$170-$180. Which, admittedly, is better than I was anticipating!

Good god, did you just use glue on a wig?! Why on earth would you do that?

Better question: why not? It worked, didn't it? I knew from the start that I wouldn't be retrieving these wigs to use them for anything else, and hell if I was going to take it all apart to wash it - I would just have to take good care of it instead.

Some of the earliest and best advice I received in wig-styling was this: wigs are not real hair, and the earlier you realise that the further you'll be able to take them. I used to be very tentative in how I styled/brushed/managed them, which always took a long time and saw pretty average results. Eventually I just went "STUFF IT" and now...well, I'm happy with how Rapunzel turned out. :D

I would not recommend using glue on real hair, for the record.

This seems like an awful lot of work. How long did it take you?

Maybe four to five days? Mainly though it just needs the time for the caulk to set - the actual work you could probably fit into the space of a day, if it was intensive! And an extra day for clean up, ahahahahaha.

What...what is caulk?

Yeah, I barely know either. It's one of those DIY home repair things, but I've only ever used it in the context of wig styling! It's a thick, white paste that dries clear. I ended up using DAP Kwik Seal Plus Kitchen & Bath Adhesive Caulk. If you're having trouble finding it in the hardware store, Katie Blair often uses it in her wigs and sells it over here.

Soooo...can I just pay you to make me one?

My flatmate would actually murder me, and that just wouldn't work out well for anyone. Honestly, give it a try - you may surprise yourself!

Can I translate this tutorial into another language?

Knock yourself out - I think it's amazing! It's actually already been translated to French, which you can find over here.

I don't like how you made the wig.

That's fine! By no means do I think this is the only way to make Rapunzel's lovely hair - it just worked for me, so I thought I'd share.

I would actually love to link to alternative methods to making Rapunzel's wig. If you have a tutorial that you made (or if you used this one with some alterations) and you'd like to share your experiences with me, please do so! Let me know as well if I can link it here and I'll add it on - we'll compile a bit of a reference list for those seeking help. :D

Good luck!
