Some of the makeup charts that will be in the Universe of One book, which should arrive next week. A lot of makeup goes into each character, no matter how simple they may appear at first glance. For the last six months, I dedicated myself to learning and improving on my makeup, which only previously included theatrical makeup.
Yay it’s official! Twinsies Volume II is successfully funded! Thank you to all of you who made it a reality. Last time, I had around 40 faces to be, this time it’s a whopping 80+ faces! I can’t wait to be all of you lovely people ♥
The complete “Glam Gods” series. (Click on a photo to view larger)
This series was a joy to do, not only because it pays homage to artists I grew up with, but because the various makeup styles were fun to do. Each album cover was inspired by a specific artist spanning 1967 - 2013.
Here’s a closer look of me as Vincent Van Gogh. If you recall, I actually painted my face, trying to use similar brush strokes as Van Gogh. I used a paper bag for my clothing because I knew I wanted texture but by that point (this portrait took almost 3 hours) I was too exhausted to paint anymore. In addition, the acrylic paint on my face was starting to harden, which made it uncomfortable.
Some unseen and unused shots from this character’s set. Sometimes I try different lighting, sometimes I try different variations of outfits. I always shoot until I get the shot that I feel conveys the character.
I’m a huge supporter of physical effects instead of computer-generated effects. That being said, here’s an animated GIF of me throwing my tie for multiple takes until I got the exact motion I wanted. Also, I am an expert at keeping my mouth open.
