Inspired by the Phoenix
series done by miss ~MadMarchHare
A captivating story coupled with amazing visuals. I highly suggest checking it out The tale begins here: [link]
But yes, my first red/yellow/orange facepainting ordeal!
D'acryl acrylics, blue no-name glitter, leftover facepaints from halloween, and lots of free time/photofiltre.
The result was a Marvelesque-bodyart-photo(manipulation).
This was super hard to put into a category. It wasn't all
digital, it wasn't all
traditional. Btw, I was going to try to get the whole flame-hair thing that she has going on in the picture, but the editing looked cheesey So I opted out of the cheese-fest and instead went for a sense of realism. After all, Hikastia has dark hair in human form
Is the contrast/intensity of the colours overkill, or a good stylized approach?
Keeping in mind the inspiration behind this: [link]
is there anything that could have been done to make the image more effective? i.e. a background, more of the shoulders/ body showing, less negative space, etc.
