Newbie Challenge #20--Red: I feel my soul on fire!

Post by amylady222 on Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:54 am


I love that there are so many threads right now getting people working on painting new ideas

there is :
The Newbie Challenge
The Face Paint Forum challenge--where you actually win something!
The Tag you are it thread
The Show and Tell

If you haven't yet--check them all out!

OK The Title of this Tread is from Les Miserable!
If you have not see it/heard of it---it is AMAZING! Musical Theater at its BEST! They just released a new movie version of the Broadway show here in the USA--anyone else see it? I was singing the song as I typed the heading!
ANYWAY--

With the valentines day challenge going on I didn't want to do a love theme--so I am doing the Colors RED and/or PINK---But here is the kicker---You can't use the color White or Black in your design. Use any other colors (and don't mix colors to get black--that is cheating!)

So I am talkative tonight and you all have to suffer (WHA ha ha ha!)
I decided to do this because I did a monster face on my little boy and used the normal green/light green split cake for the base and white for the horns, but I only had dark blue on me (and was too lazy to go and get my black) so I used Dark blue for the outline and details--OK IF he would have stay still long enough to do details, but he didn't, so I just image it in my head, BUT It turned out really good. I liked the color contrast and the blue made the face look totally different, maybe even better.

So take a risk this challenge--even if you fail we want to see it so we can learn from your mistake OR improve on what you did and maybe find a great face that works for us!

So enjoy your Red/Pink face with no white or black.

(No, I do not "self medicate" this is what happens when I am stuck in the house for a week straight with very little adult contact!)

OK last little bit---If you have ideas for challenges please PM them to me--someone, I am sorry I forget who, I have a terrible memory, sent me a great list and somehow I deleted them all!

Amy thank goodness someone else here likes to ramble on (now I have Led Zepplin in my head!). Ooooo....how about song lyrics?! Yes, that was random, but it's how my brain works.

So I hijacked my own thread!

anyway here is a little background--a group of french young men are trying to overthrow the government are asking themselves if it worth it. One of the main characters Marius has just met the love of his life and now he has to decide to join his "brothers" to fight or to to follow his love.
seriously this musical is amazing--so many amazing plots and unforgettable characters


Enjolras
The time is near...
So near.. it's stirring the blood in their veins!
And yet beware...
Don't let the wine go to your brains!
For the army we fight is a dangerous foe
With the men and the arms that we never can match
Oh, it's easy to sit here and swat 'em like flies
But the national guard will be harder to catch.
We need a sign
To rally the people
To call them to arms
To bring them in line!

[Marius enters.]

Marius, you're late.

Joly
What's wrong today?
You look as if you've seen a ghost.

Grantaire
Some wine and say what's going on!

Marius
A ghost you say... a ghost maybe
She was just like a ghost to me
One minute there, and she was gone!

Grantaire
I am agog!
I am aghast!
Is Marius in love at last?
I have never heard him `ooh' and `aah'
You talk of battles to be won
But here he comes like Don Ju-an
It's better than an o-per-a!

Enjolras
It is time for us all
To decide who we are...
Do we fight for the right
To a night at the opera now?
Have you asked of yourselves
What's the price you might pay?
Is it simply a game
For rich young boys to play?
The color of the world
Is changing
Day by day...
Red - the blood of angry men!
Black - the dark of ages past!
Red - a world about to dawn!
Black - the night that ends at last!

Marius
Had you been there tonight
You might know how it feels
To be struck to the bone
In a moment of breathless delight!
Had you been there tonight
You might also have known
How the world may be changed
In just one burst of light!
And what was right
Seems wrong
And what was wrong
Seems right...

Grantaire [mocking...]
Red...

Marius
I feel my soul on fire!

Grantaire
Black...

Marius
My world if she's not there...

All
Red...

Marius
The color of desire!

All
Black...

Marius
The color of despair!

Enjolras
Marius, you're no longer a child
I do not doubt you mean it well
But now there is a higher call
Who cares about your lonely soul
We strive toward a larger goal
Our little lives don't count at all!

All
Red - the blood of angry men!
Black - the dark of ages past!
Red - a world about to dawn!
Black - the night that ends at last!

so I added a link also


this video shows the actors on stage singing, but not in the actual musical--it is a special our local public TV did.

Red...love it! I had originally planned this design for the Valentine's Day challenge, but I really don't like the execution. First design on "Sally", my new head from a beauty school. She was harder to paint on tan I thought!
P.S. Les Mis was amazing!!

Firstly - Sandie, that rocks! So pretty! Smile

Secondly - ohhhh Amy. I went to see Les Miserables with my friend Bryar last Sunday. I'm glad we took tissues. It was AMAZING! I'm with you on this one - if anyone hasn't already seen it, they should. Utterly beautiful.

Not very happy with my attempt. I meant just to put bling around the 3 love heart shapes, but for some unknown reason also outlined them in the brown I was using for the bud bases!

I was going for a sort of "Sleeping Beauty" sort of vibe, with thorny, tangled vines and buds. I also stenciled my lips! Very Happy

I used from inside to outside: pink of the partyxplosion palette, superstar color 101 (cyclaam in dutch), and the red of the partyxplosion palette, but I turns out a bit more orange. For the outside lining around the silver (from partyxplosion) I used neon pink of partyxplosion.

Nice painting Sandie! How is it to paint your new model?
I have bought a head but do not find it easy at all! The paint slides differently and it stains!!
Kammy love your rose buds so pretty and detailed!!
Bella great idea Silver!! It works well on pink!!! Good job! Very Happy

Good job Paola! I found painting the model head a bit tricky. Yep, and she is stained. I didn't have any hairspray to spray her first to prevent the staining. I really want to do that design over again on a real person, but no models want to pose except my Bella, and she's a sickie right now! Sad

Thank you Sandie! I don't like the heads also for that reason.
Please try it on your Bella! Is going to be gorgeous!
Hope she feels better soon. I love you
