'Reaper' sculpt from '08

This is a couple shots of a demon arm I sculpted last year at WCT. There was only one arm, it ended up being run in foam latex, seamed by me and Tracy Lai, then finished by Bill Terezakis and Erin Peters with more warts and a paint job.

The arm was for the TV show 'Reaper'.

This kid rocks out: REMIX!!!!!!!!!!!!

So I was called on once again to apply this makeup. I like the finished result MUCH more than my first time around, the paint is more subtle and the hair work is 1000 times better than the first go. That's due mostly to trimming/styling I go to do this time around.
The pieces (3) were glued on with pros aid, sealed with Green Marble and painted with Illustrator palettes. The hair is hand laid crepe. I also used some Green Marble concentrate for wrinkle stipple on the eyes.

Gelatin demo!

This was a gelatin application demo I did at VFS for the gelatin application class. I liked the finished results so I snapped a couple of pics.
It consists of 2 gelatin nasal labials that came from the same mold as the silicone pieces below. They weren't made for Jon but fit very well!! The left(his) pieces was applied a little to far out, should have been over to the right a bit more.

Was glued on with pros aid and colored with Illustrator palettes.

First silicone makeup from last year.

This was a silicone makeup I did the same day as HD Trauma. It was for the same HD lighting seminar as well. How ever due to time I did not get pics of the finished makeup . These pics were taken by Jamie's(model) girlfriend. I actually didn't get them till more recently, yeah it's been a while, I know!
Anyways, I did an absolutely shit job of tinting the silicone (as you can see), trust me that's not an every day thing, I swear!! I had no color swatch of Jamie when tinting the silicone, apparently I though he was albino....
It consisted of 3 pieces, 2 nasal labial and a neck waddle. It was glued down with Telesis and painted with JOMO alcohol based airbrush colors, plus a little Illustrator here and there. Before paint I also did a latex stretch and stipple on the rest of the neck, this helped the appliance blend in much better!
Over all the paint job is crap, haha, probably one of the worst I have ever done. The application went well though, and to be honest it looked fantastic 20' tall up on the theater screen! (was projected live from an HD camera)
Even though I'm not terribly proud of this makeup, my blog isn't just about all the work I'm proud of, but more my learning experience. This was my first silicone makeup so it seemed right to have it up on here!
