The funny thing is that I seem to be recognised more now, even though the show’s not on. I can’t figure out how that works. I don’t know whether it’s because it’s available on DVD or whether it nudges into the public consciousness more. But that’s what I find strange. It doesn’t seem to diminish when you’re not on. Not that I don’t like being well known, it’s very nice, but some days you’d just like to quietly pop to the shops. But no, it seems as potent as ever.

Greetings contestants and spectators, and welcome to round 2 of Arda’s Best Face Forward 2016! We are going to go a little opposite from the last challenge and do something a little gory…a little bloody…something messy…zombies!

See the full breakdown of what our contestants received and the rules here:


Daniel Radcliffe’s transformation in the upcoming Horns has been kept largely under wraps ahead of the movie’s Halloween release date. But some totally amazing new pictures making the rounds online today show just how complete Radcliffe’s devilish transformation will be.” [article]


A little something I’ve always wanted to do- Special effects from the 1920’s to the 1940’s.

For the sake of sanity, I left off some details of the traveling matte processes…. them’s pretty complicated things!

(Hm I gotta work on my graphic design chops…. gettin kinda rusty)

My granny used to bring me Casper the Friendly Ghost comics … I guess we had TV21 and Thunderbirds and the Frank Bellamy drawings and Doctor Who in TV Action and TV  Comic. That was more what I looked at as opposed to American comic books.

The Hunger Bird, on display at the New Blades exhibition.

One hell of a ride. My first time creating a creature of this size. The plaster mould fell apart, and I was told to quit three times, but here it is. I fixed an unfixable project.
And I reached the goal that I’ve been heading towards for a large part of my education - I brought my imagination to life.
Something I plan to keep doing, and something I hope will inspire and create a sense of wonder in both young and old.
Hopefully a better photo will come soon, the red eyes are an important feature! Stay tuned.

Thank you to Neil Gaiman for inspiring me with your own imagination, I hope it is to your liking!


-bad Brooklyn accent- MOLTEN FIREBALL ATTACK!!

As you guys requested through a 50% vote, the Red-Eyes Black Dragon was the next monster I did an inspired look for in my Yu-Gi-Oh! inspired makeup series.

Please feel free to vote for the next inspired look here!

This was my first time using stencils, and I got them from here and the lenses are here.

I gotta admit, this is my favorite look of the bunch so far, but Red-Eyes is one of my favorite monsters! If you liked this please feel free to follow me elsewhere for more!
