PLs help critique these 2 designs

Post by lindaco on Tue Nov 05, 2013 6:15 pm

I'm brand new to facepainting . I have been doing creative birthday parties for 10 years and wanted to offer something extra. It's a fun change for me but it'll be a while before I'm good enough to go out there :-)

However I have volunteered my services to a local event for children and I will be doing these two little fellows as cheek art. They are very traditional characters so I don't want to change them but I haven't found any samples out there for face painting..so these are my trials and would love to get some critique on how to improve them.

they look fine. hope the kids sit still for the line work.
how long do these take you?

I limit all cheek art to 2 minutes max, and no more than 4 brushes=two colors, one black, one white.

if you can do these quick, they are great.

I can't see it either :-) ... apparently I'm not allowed to post links for 7 days as a new member. So that might be the reason...

Although it seems like someone else did see them?! ...
don't know how to fix this ....

Thank you..I don't know how long it took..I'm going to practise more to get quicker though. I've just ordered some new brushes that will hopefully improve on time and look as well.
I can't really do this in 2 colors as they are such traditional characters , they are called " Sinterklaas en Zwarte Piet" , if you google for images you will see what I mean.

I have to do 80 kids in 3 hours... Sad (my very first event ever..lol!!)

Kammy and lindaco, right click on the icon for the picture and open in new tab. I am thinking you hosted it as a URL so it has it's own page rather than showing up on here as a pic

Really? I see a little blue square and when I right click it, it opens a new tab? I don't know. I will post it for her.

Here are the two pictures that Lindaco needs help with :::::::

:-) ..they are called " Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet" 2 very traditional characters in many European countries.
It's a Holiday for children as the good Saint Nick ( Sint Niklaas) brings them goodies.
Santa Claus found his origins there !!
We celebrate his birthday on Dec 6th..

Lindaco: Ohhh - I recognised Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet straight away! I'm in Scotland, but have many friends in Holland and know the traditions. Love your cute little cheek-art renditions of the characters! Smile

Debbie: Thank you for posting those. I definitely still see no tiny (or otherwise!) blue squares, and I usually don't have any issues seeing images or links on the forums - I've been here a while. Very Happy It was nice to see what everyone was going on about.

lindaco, you did nice work on those.
You might want to go to your profile page ("Profile" at the top of the forum under the heading) and add Belgium to your location Very Happy
Emmajade, that was sweet of you to post the picture!
