Arrosa'Ubel Amanzi Demon.

My last planned shoot for August, although that could change I suppose. I need to take a quick break to catch up on other work. I've been doing a bit of experimenting with makeup, application techniques, cutting corners to speed the process up, types of makeup, etc.

The main reason behind going with fuchsia as the main colour for this makeup was because I happened to have tights the same colour as some body paint that I had and I wanted to test an idea I've been rolling round that I could fake a full body makeup by using a top with long sleeves (leaving only the hands, neck and sometimes face, to be painted and either shorts or a skirt with the tights. You get a big splash of colour, for very little work.

Overall I think the fake full body paint idea worked pretty well - some shots the idea reads a little better than others.

Blue Lenaka Demon.

I did another shoot reusing the Lenaka Demon cowl prosthetic I did a shoot with a couple week ago. I didn't really go too far away as far as the subject matter goes, but I did want to paint it all up rather than keeping it simple looking.

It's been awhile since I did a full body paint job, it's pretty tiring and this was a little experimental - while not entirely successful, I did learn a lot from it I might try another time in hopes I get a more durable, long lasting paintjob.

The main idea was to just do a black backdrop for the shoot, but I felt like we might as well snag a few more outside somewhere. Went to an old lighthouse and quickly grabbed a few more to round out the shoot, I was a little surprised how many of those turned out really nice too.
