This piece took me a while to create, I guess I got stuck midway through editing because I wasn’t sure where to go with it, But I love the end result.
The whole process of creating this was really enjoyable, from creating the character through the use of makeup and props to editing the final image.
You can find my post about creating this character over on my beauty blog. The image inset here is one I created to feature with that post.
This set of images turned out so bright and colourful, I feel like it’s so different in comparison to what I have previously created. I was partly inspired by my ‘Storyteller Collection’ and partly from my love of makeup and costumes. I want to keep adding to this series or collection over time, creating new characters to feature.
I love seeing what a lot of other artist are creating, a lot of theirs seem to have symbolism behind it and I love that, it’s something I would love to try but at the same time I just love fun images like this. I’m very inspired by fairytales and stories, and I really love creating stuff that has a story behind it, if that makes sense.
Anyway I hope you enjoy this image as much as I do, I brought a new facepaint kit to try out so expect to see some more fun characters in the future.
