As an Advanced member of FACE, The Face Painting Association, I have to submit photos with my renewal application every year. I have to send in NEW photos of my work that show the three test faces that the original certification requires. Those three faces are White base, Tiger, and a Three-colour blend.
They don’t have to be original designs and don’t have to be fancy or WOW, just show the appropriate standard of technique and ability.
But I haven’t been taking too many photos of my work over the past six months, at least not many that fit the requirements. So I emailed Naomi to see if she could spare me an hour.
Last night she came over and I got the photos I needed and they’ve been sent off.
So… I got a giggle out of my three-colour blend. As the Space Shuttle Discovery landed for the last time yesterday I decided to commemorate the occasion in my painting… and then added in a Dr. Who reference… only fans will actually “get it”…. I call this design: Hey, Who Turned Out the Lights?
If you “get it”… let me know! Please… I just need to know that I’m not a total dweeb! LOL (cheater link if you don’t get it…)
The tiger and white face are very basic…
Just a basic working tiger… It really doesn’t look like Naomi though which is weird.
And what I call an “Alien Mime”
The purpose of the white base design is to show technique and ability to apply and even, opaque base – white shows flaws so is the best way to show this. I was sort of thinking about doing a geisha or Queen Amidala type design… ended up with this mime look. Pretty minimalist but I think it should serve the purpose.
