Newbie Challenge # 5 & 6

Post by amylady222 on Sun Oct 07, 2012 1:20 pm


Since I am doing two weeks together I thought I would choose a new title.

We have had
Newbie Challenge #1 & #2: Spidey & Butterflys

Newbie Challenge #3 & #4: Tigers & Lines

Since we have a "open post" for other facepainting (YEAH!) I am going to go ahead and do a specific challenge.

so the challenge for this upcoming week----

Unicorns.

If you struggle like I do--In fact I don't think I have ever done a unicorn--they look so hard---untill I saw this video. I could wait to try one after seeing this!

You have a week! Enjoy!

I love when I find something to help me kick some painting butt! Thanks to FEE for doing this video!

I can't get a good photo of this AT. ALL.....but here it is anyway, my first unicorn ever!

I'll do another one soon, and try to get a decent photo by doing it on my leg instead of my arm. Laughing

Wow! great first try! I have yet to try mine--but it will be coming sometime in the next week.

A lot of our newbies seemed to disappear-- Sad Hope they come back!

Thanks, Amy and Tia. Smile I'm quite pleased with it, and will try to do more of them so I can get my time down a bit. It's nice having that first gig behind me, so that I can branch out more and practice random things, instead of only concentrating on the designs on my board.

Isn't face painting amazing? Art- and community-wise, I don't think I've ever encountered anything quite like it. Smile

We were building such a lovely little sub-community of newbies here, I'd hate that to go awry.

Nobody is allowed to leave, y'hear? Very Happy

Perhaps they've all suddenly got tons of face painting work....? Wink

In any case, I love the newbies who ARE here, and I'm really enjoying the challenges, even if I am sometimes a bit late with them. Thanks for doing these.

Kammy--I hope they are so busy with real jobs they can't work on practice!!

Your unicorn's great, Daphne - but I really love the butterfly on the left, too! You have a real eye for colour and the wings are such a pretty shape. Smile

amylady222,
I'm glad you liked my video .Very Happy
I didn't paint the unicorn, but took a video and edited it. Susan was demoing another unicorn (Fee Jackson's) too, but the video didn't turn out good.
This is one stroke unicorn by Fee Jackson:

Katerra--Thanks for taking the credit! I am really bad at doing that! I know that ticks people off big time and I am sorry!

I do like the video and the Fee Jackson one is great too--I watched the other video and I like that also! So much Talent out there.

This is what I did today---I would watch videos and copy their style--then I did one at the end that way a combo of what I liked and made my own style.

Here you go!


1st one I did--


Not sure whose video this was--some random person on youtube, but I didn't follow it very well. I Like the eye of this one


Like this one--needs work


The Evil hutchback Unicorn---has potential--needs work


I liked this ones, but --needs work (Lets just assume they ALL need work) Smile


This is the one I did on my own--guess it looks like unicorns are on the Need to perfect list!

Leilani - gorgeous, delicate black line work on your unicorn. It really gives movement to the mane. :-)

Doe - I can't see your first one because it's so big, sorry! My unicorn was inspired by Fee Jackson too. I guess I watch so many tutorials these days, I presume everyone will see the influence, and then have to slap myself when I realise they might've not seen the same tutorials as me. Laughing I like the shape of your second design, too. On an unrelated topic....you are SO going to love your new FAB paints. Much of my kit is Superstar (the same stuff) and I love the colours and texture, though the latter can take a little getting used to. Do you already have FAB, lots of stash, or are you just building a kit? What do you have so far? Curious cat, here. Wink

EDITED TO ADD: Scrap that. I just read on another thread that you have a good stash of FAB already. And now you'll have even more. Wahey! Laughing

Amy - I love that you've posted lots, so we can see the evolution of your unicorn as you practice different styles. I like the third one best too, with its magical, gentle colours and curly mane. The last two look like they're wearing ponytails, which is appropriate and made me giggle. Yeah. I've not had my morning coffee yet. Wink

Great work, newbie lounge! Love seeing all these unicorns, and getting ideas for my own designs too. Smile
