New Kind of Cheetah and a Grandbaby.

Post by Denise Cold on Wed Mar 07, 2012 1:50 am

I wanted to shoot a Youtube video with Emma because she had some time off but I got a GRANDBABY BOY!!! instead. The baby came a lot sooner today than expected which was great for my daughter because he was smaller and a really quick birth....anyway.

I was working on doing a new kind of cheetah and I printed out photos of cheetahs, etc. and was frustrated because the paints were so dramatic so I tried something different. I took a tip from the Christina Davison book where she makes the whole design in white/pearl white and then adds color. Instead of paint I used the Ben Nye Powders on top in gold and ice and then orange accents and I really liked it.

I followed the patterns on real cheetahs as much as possible and then I did a cool accidental thing. I made the lip lower...but then I thought "it needs teeth with this" so I wiped of the lower lip area and THEN added the teeth. I love it. So next time I do a tiger or bit cat I'm going to leave the bottom lip bare and paint the black lips under the lip and white teeth on the bottom lip...instant tongue. And they can be at rest and still look like their mouth is open. It's similar to the chin teeth that I love on Wolfe Brothers wolf.

Anyway...I hope to make a Youtube soon on it.

What a great idea. I think you just suggested a MAJOR change in the way many of us do mouth designs on many cats, even some monsters. Way to go, Denise...& congrats on the grandbaby.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. This is actually my second grand baby and he's a doll. They named him Dylan Thomas for the poet & Bob Dylan. Reminds me so much of our babies...it's a little freaky. My first grand baby is almost old enough to paint! Weird things face painters think about. Smile

Dang sneezes!

It always scares me when I paint under kids eyes that it will turn on the water works. I think I saw someone say to look up and open your eyes wide or something...anybody heard how to stop eyes watering?

Dear Denise:
Congratulations upon becoming a Grandmother for the second time! My own mother told me that if she knew how much more fun grandchildren were, she would have had them FIRST!

Amazing Cheetah mouth!
