I just amaze myself. LOL I am all ready for the community wide yard sale, and for my show. Now what I create is just extra and I can't wait to show you the extra.
Not today though. 😀
For now lets get into FFO.
This is a trial piece and I am keeping her for myself. For some reason I really like her.
I can't decide if she is alien or sea creature or maybe she is an alien that lived in the sea? You tell me.
I had a slew of how-to photos on my camera and while doing photo shoots for the flyer for my show the darn
how-to photos got deleted. uurrrgggg.
This creature started with a styrofoam mannequin female head. I cut out the mouth and eyes, made the nose larger, added ears and the ridges on the head and cheeks. After all that dried I applied the skin allowed the first layer to dry and added another layer. I added the eyeballs. Then I did the 3 or 4 layers of painting. After each layer of paint it has to dry before the next layer can be applied. This is why I have several projects going at once. There is a lot of drying time with the creatures and skulls. I was going to add lips but I like her mouth the way it is. The fun thing is I can always add to this face.
