Beginner cutesy goldfish + simple one stroke frog

Post by Coral3 on Thu Jan 12, 2012 5:25 pm

Painted this goldfish last night and (apart from the 'splashes') I kind of like how it turned out. It's essentially the one Lisa Joy Young does at the end of her shark you tube tutorial, although I did change the lips ever so slightly. I've been face painting for 3 weeks (with no other painting experience). Anyway, just thought I'd share! Smile

Wow! Three weeks and already that good! Kudos to you Smile

The line work, tear drops, dots and shading is very impressive, especially for that length of time!

Nice work Smile

Agree, you don't need the blue. Bigger bubbles headed towards the corner of the eye?

Thanks everyone, and thanks for the pointers re the blue.

Bekahcat, I used TAG Frangipani one stroke for the orange. Somehow I can't help but feel like I'm 'cheating' using one strokes, but I do love them! My black is Snazaroo (for now - until I use it all up and get some TAG black to try).

And yes, that is me Martha.

...and here's a little froggy I painted on my arm today. Used TAG one stroke leaf white. Feedback/suggestions/criticism welcome! (I'd love to do a frog with/in a pink waterlily flower somehow, but am yet to figure out how to do that, so he's just a frog for now!)

You have a very cool, unique style....especially the frog. I love the big webbed feet. Excited to see what you come up with in the future.

I do a similar one stroke froggy...but I didn't think of circles for toes on the webbed feet...LOVE IT... instead of the white swirly indicating the fly's path I just paint the fly and have a cute long red tongue with a curl on the end coming out of the frog' mouth...
cheers
