" My Life As A Comic "
Hi, this is me. Yet anothoer self-portrait featuring dat comic lyfe. The simple yet awesome makeup was inspired by the very own Alexys Fleming . She's a creative make-up artist who does phenomenal work ! I was watching videos on youtube and you know how random channels would pop up on the ad before your video starts ? She popped-up ! And I was just like, " nooooooooooooooooooo, this is so freaking cooooooooool " D: I subscribed immediately cause I knew I was gonna enjoy watching her videos. More than beauty work, she also does games, cartoons, and movie inspired make-up. She's so talented ! You should check her out, I linked her facebook page somewhere in this paragraph ~
Video right here !
I know there's more videos like this, but I personally liked her version because she kept it simple and cool.
After watching it, I was like, yeah, ok cool i'm gonna watch some more~ But then one day I was thinking of new photos to make and I thought of this video and thought I could take a self-portrait inspired by this look. Most importantly, I love comics and games so much that it'd be cool to use your face as a canvas to try to look like one of your favorite characters !
So THANK YOU so much Alexys Fleming !
Few photos from this shoot~
My other favorite, just cause I think the pose gives it a bit more character.
Closer look at make-up.
I'm not a make-up pro or whatever, I just used acrylic black paint for everything, except the lipstick.
Outlined collar bones and shtuff.
Much respect to my main model and focus target, my home-made R2-D2 made out of cereal boxes and paint and gesso and other shenanigans~ I know it looks retarted.
