7 dwarfs face painting??

Post by Jody Rife on Thu Oct 25, 2012 11:45 am

Well I just booked a group of 7 adults that want to be the 7 dwarfs. So, I am thinking skin tones, age them a bit, beards big eyebrows and exaggerate the noses? Would you try to make them disney like or just more natural? I'm a little concerned about this one.

When people call me and ask me to paint them, I'm usually like, Sure I can do that, even if I'm not sure. But these one is a little out of my comfort zone of pretty eyes and monster faces.

Anyone ever done anything like this? What worked for you. Thank you. Smile

This is a Dopey design I did a few years ago for a Snow White themed party. I tried to keep it simple and cartoony.
I am sure it can be improved on.

LOL! Wow Shannon, that looks amazing!!! I bet the parents thoroughly enjoyed it.

I have to say Im bias to Disney cuteness... growing up with Disney in its movie prime I love when its all cute and colorful images.

Liz, thank you for that, I am keeping it in mind. Shannon, those are cool and more along the lines of what I was thinking. I think I will mentally prepare for both and wait to see what the costumes look like. Smile Thank you all sooooo much. Smile

I have seen some picture of people painting Santa--that is what comes to my mind










these were in my inspiration folder---don't know who did them--maybe I should name them the artist name when I save them---Oh they are watermarked! Great!
change them to work for you, but you get the idea -- take pictures I want to see what you come up with!

When I read 7 dwarfs I immediately think of the cartoony ones from Disney (successfull brainwashing on their part I'm sure) and love amylady's suggestion of the Santa/elf pics...those would be great!

Doc gets glasses, Sneezy a red nose, Grumpy with frown lines...Sleepy, Bashful, Dopey, Happy ---harder to differentiate unless you go with the colors of their caps. http://www.essortment.com/keeping-track-seven-dwarfs-names-32645.html

Sleepy, lighten the eye lids (if they are game, cut out scotch tape shape and stick it to the upper eye lid- this is how they do lazy eyes for movies or stage some time)

Happy, smile likes, maybe even painted on teeth and over exagerrated smile

Bashful, repaint the eye brows very high, and flush the cheeks

Dopey, over paint the mouth so it looks partially open and with buck teeth.
