Yeah. I’m a nerd. And of all the things I find pretty, I always love seeing the interesting makeup details drawn into Death’s character. I probably have five different sketches done incorporating various different designs for the character. I did several looks this weekend, and was sad that I never got up the motivation to do something costume-y. I’ve had variations of this sketched out for months, and I finally just did it my own way.
The decision to make this one bright was…. last minute…. I just thought, why not? And I added a few tic marks betwen the eyeliner detailing, reminescent of wing feathers. Could have come out worse, could have come out better. It really is kinda painful putting this kind of makeup on yourself.
I may edit this after the boyfriend has time to help me edit images. This photographed nicely, but I’d like to try to play with photoshop for something slightly more finished looking. I may get a new camera later this week, with a stabilized zoom and macro. I really shouldn’t spend the money, but the jitter to a lot of my images is mainly due to my cheaping out last time I went camera shopping. I repaired it once, under warrantee, but that’s gone now and it’s showing signs of the same problem repeating. So I can try to nurse it along until it REALLY breaks, or i can buy a new camera while the one that looked good is on sale, and use this as my backup. I’m tired of my stuff being slightly out of focus.
Update-still no time to attempt creative image editing, but the lovely LolliTragic, on Makeupgeek did a very nice one that encompassed a good chunk of what I wanted to try, and cleaned it up a bit. I’ll still try it myself, but in the meantime, I’m really pleased to have inspiration for where to go wtih it from here! To avoid cluttering front page, image is right below the cut.
