just read your post and did this just quick now it is done with Tag magpie altgougt any white grey black split would work, a few white highlights on joins and some black wash shadows

it looks hard but it is super easy literally s the s then flick down, sort of dot and flick up - and I like blackwash you dont need it.

Thanks!!
forgot to mention it is done with the tag sise 6 flat brush, and using the narrow part only, and I pick up just a hint of black. I blackwash it as It is really quick to do the design it self so you have time (plus going through a stage of blackwash as we do)

wow, that barbed wire looks awesome. gotta give it a try.

Lollyjean, why don't you try some graffiti/tattoo arms - Wiser style. Check out his work, it's amazing. He's got a tutorial on Fabatv that would be popular with that age group. My boys have even ASKED me to paint them the last couple of days once I showed them what I was trying to do!!

alright I normally wouldn't post as I am still trying to perfect these but as you liked my barbed wire you could try this.

Boy teen designs:
This can be done w/ footballs, baseballs, basketballs, etc.


I do this dagger & snake a lot now & need a better photo of it. Teen boys love it on their arm.

Linda. I like them all but.... I love the dragon.... flower Very Happy flower

(had two hours sleep.)
what do you want the SBS on?
out of the second images the first one is ssss for row then stuff over the top as follows
i.e flickup -turn & pull then lift (make barb/ arrow shape) then flick, and flick then for the end flick down, turn &pull then lift (that would be upside down arrow/barb)



the second one is basket weave i.e. down-across-down
new line across - down- across
new line down-across-down
new line across - down- across
etc, etc

I use it in masks sometimes and have plans for it with bodys when I get a volunteer.

Get a tattoo book for inspiration, or google images. Teen boys really like tat images. Even on the face ala Mike Tyson.
The tattoo books are awesome, and reasonable expense wise. even the girls like to look through and pick out designs.

This was inspired by someone I think on this forum, but I can't remember. Was very popular at a spring event for a high school. Just customized with whatever the kid requested (so long as it wasn't dirty or offensive!)


Tattoo style skull, from book


also from a tattoo book. Kid requested an L over the top of it? For whatever reason....

Also really popular it seems with teen boys. Like it is some kind of memorial type thing?

From tattoo book. Kid requested Killer Band written on the ribbon, so just customize whatever they think sounds cool. Again, so long as it isn't offensive.

Lovely designs!

Love the barbed wire, the mean bulldog (so cute!) the cross with the waving flag (nice movement), the dragon and the name tag idea especially! And the tattoo book inspired designs rock too!

Nice work ladies!

This is on the face, but easily could be anywhere. Its the Logo for Skrillex (a dj/musician)
Photobucket
And this is on my hand, but again anywhere. I learned how to do a simple spider by Pashur. I highly recommend his classes.
Photobucket

Also heres some ideas -
Monster Energy Drink Logo
Google
Gears or War video game Logo
Photobucket
Mortal Kombat Logo
Google
DC Comics Logo
Google
And of course Super Man, Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Captain America, etc etc logos and any design can be accompanied by tribal.

Kara,

Be ever so careful of posting company logos a lot of them are VERY proprietary.

I took a class with Nick and Brian Wolfe and asked them about logos. They said that in court, its really hard for companies to fight. Basically, it's not worth their time if all you're doing is selling small face paints with these logos. It's different if you are making a huge profit or selling a real item. The thing is that face paint washes off. It isn't forever. Marvel can't stop you from painting a Spidey face, but they can stop you from making a how-to in a book on how to paint a Spidey face without a license.

black wash is basically black with alot of water to wash it out. how I do mine may be different to how others do theres . I acctually put paint on the lid of my black add water till it is desired colour and swish it all over the lid and let the lid dry out completly. and then all it takes is a spray on the job to have a washed out black.
I have also done it on my hand.

If however you are not comfortable with this, drybrushing will work too.
Basically dry out brush on a paper towel until hardly any colour remains.
or try paradise black with no water added, for this.

I honestly chose to blackwash as I was trying to do it quick before the local shops shut, and the paradise black was burried in my kit which was away for christmas and the black, white and split cakes were at hand - in the fridge.

The basket weave I have never seen anyone do in face painting I can't even find it done in painting. haven't looked that hard though, only a few google pages worth. mabye it has a different name for a tutorial??? but it comes from years of doing it and teaching it in sugar art with icing sugar. have crossed over a few things now.

also some quick one stroke dragon armbands the grey one very quick , purple a little longer I end up doing this or barbed wire mostly.

Dragons are popular, but my most popular is by far the Monster logo. It's super easy and quick too.
