Zoo Animals

Post by Kristal on Thu Sep 30, 2010 5:00 pm

I've got a party @ the Zoo in mid-Oct, and the birthday girl wants everyone in zoo animal faces (Spiderman's an animal, right?). She wants to be a zebra - no prob. I've seen some different versions and I can figure that out. Tigers - done! Ditto cheetah's. Lions - I love Lone's HP Lion.

Does anyone have a full-face elephant? Other versions of giraffes? Full-face hippo? Monkeys I find tricky. Owl? I know I'll likely end up doing rainbow butterflies and Batman anyway, and thankfully I'm painting before they go on their safari tour, but I guess it's the push I needed to add zoo animals! Would love to see your versions.

I have never figured how to do a full face elephant (although I think I saw one in the Wolfe brothers new book, which I have yet to buy, that looks okayish)

I love this Giraffe (and so does my daughter Wink )


Here is my attempt at a monkey too, dont like it so much though. He had to be the biggest wriggler too.

Daisy you were the first person I thought of for the giraffe!

For a full face elephant, try doing a side view of an elephant using the childs eye. Maybe a fat cartoonish one Smile If my son wasn't sick, I'd pull out my paints.

Oh, Daisy don't you have a penquin! That's a zoo animal Wink

The Wolfe brother's new book Extreme Facepainting ( http://tinyurl.com/ExtremeFaces )has a full face Monkey, Zebra, Lion, Jaguar as well as a "one eye" peacock and large cheek art giraffe where the neck curves around the eye. Very cool designs with step by step instructions

Haha cute! Thanks!

I did just get the Wolfie's new book, too - that's one of the zebra designs I'm planning on trying!

This is the good part about themed birthdays - "having to" learn new designs that I might not otherwise learn Very Happy

I recently did a 5th grade class of "animals coming out of the woods". I looked on the snaz sight for ideas. Their rhino was cool and I also like the giraffe I found.

Thanks for the thread! I just got a call from a pediatric dentist office that has a safari theme. They're having me paint kids so they can take pictures of them & decorate the office! I'm so excited to be somewhat published!!!

Does anyone have a cute monkey face that doesnt look like they came out of Planet of the Apes? Or is that inevitable?

I've been combing the Internet for examples of face painting for inspiration and practice. Here are the ones I've found that might work for you.

Ok, I've been trying to paint once a day - doesn't always turn out though Razz

Attempts: (Wolfe giraffe and zebra, (my elephant attempt makes me cringe), and Lone's lion from the boy challenge - mucked up the forehead, but oh well. Try, try again.)

I am still planning on a full/eyeball giraffe, an eyeball zebra, an elephant I'm actually not embarrassed about Razz and I want to try a monkey but for some reason that has me freeze up before even trying.

Sorry these are HUGE!


I know the neck is wonked at the top. I've already made the mental note to not do that next time Razz


Line placement kind of evaded me, but all in all I'd be okay with this one - luckily the birthday girl wants to be a zebra and not an elephant, haha.



Any feedback? I betcha I'll get there and it'll be a butterfly/Spiderman kind of day Razz
