i suck at painting my own face. but practice...

Post by a_better_man_now on Sun Oct 06, 2013 11:57 am

so, i suck at painting my own face, my hand just doesn't wanna work the same towards my own face the way it does on painting others'.   Gotta practice somewhere, so i keep trying.   This morning i tried the tiger half face i keep seeing everywhere, and this was the results.  a little rough, and critique and constructive criticism are appreciated.  (keeping in mind i'm still pretty darn new to face painting, with only a few gigs under my belt.)

Don't be too hard on yourself..it takes pratice. I think the line work is the hardest to get down. My lines are always thicker on my own face. You did a good job blending the yellow and orange and it looks like you have your lines strategically placed...all in all...I think Success Very Happy

thanks, veelux. yeah, i need to practice my brush work a little more for sure. and you're right, i did notice my lines are always thicker when i paint my own face...its hard to gauge the pressure when your painting in the mirror.

I think you did a pretty good job! I can't paint on my own face worth anything!
I like the little teeth you did on your lip...I never saw that done before (but I'm pretty new myself) I think it adds a cute touch.

I think it looks great, btw Smile I'm sorry I didn't realize I posted my pic in the wrong section, that's what I get for trying to use the Internet on my phone... I just learned (by being able to do a version side by side) that it really brings the face together by making the white eyes go all the way above the eye brows, so it would make for a few less lines in the forehead area (about the 2nd or third line in). I really like the quality and would make some little kid extremely happy!
