I was a teenage Gillface by Anarchpeace I was a teenage Gillface by Anarchpeace
EDIT I was blown away to find that I had won a place in the contest.
I have seen a lot of really awesome entries and I do believe that more of the "just makeup" entries should have placed. as a lot of people mention. and it is not particularly fair that photoshop users tend to be favored in contests and such. But it kind of irks me when people complain that prosthetics aren't masks or are "too easy"

I didn't go to school for makeup at all. not at ALL. I decided one day to spend some of my commission money to purchase some mask latex, some plasteline clay, some plaster and a plastic face form to begin working on making prosthetics any way I knew how. basically from looking really hard at how it's done through stuff on the internet. This process was not easy. sure. I could have just sculpted the original face out of oven bake clay or something and it probably wouldn't have been so ridiculed in such a way?? you think that's harder? I made the sculpt, made a mold out of plaster, made seperate molds for the gills. put it all together after I casted it in pigmented latex. painted the thing... put it on with a little spirit gum, and some random normal eyeshadow to blend it into my face which is all I had. I am NOT a skilled prosthetic maker or wearer. so you can get that out of your head right off the bat. lol.

fffffffffffffffffff

This is for the contest... the mask is made by me ;) can be seen here [link]

I love those hair extensions :D

Gee, this looks as if it was really tough to make! But I can definitely relate to you feelings; people complain way too much. And I feel like digital art and photography are way too much in favour here on deviantArt. It's sometimes hard to get noticed for good art. I love this piece of yours, but I think I'm going to take a look at the rest of your gallery now :]

That's a cool mask. I think it actually looks feminine, even though it's missing most of the usual gender features. The fingernails are a nice touch, but it would have been nice if there was also skin-paint to match the green of the mask.

hmmmm. when I got all of the basic clay on the plastic face base it was quick from there! :) I work fast when I'm super into it.

I hate making plaster molds though v.v it's annoying trying to make a dam to hold all of the liquid plaster in an area over the sculpt without having the plaster like, seep through cracks in the dam omg.

making the cast out of latex is REALLY fun. ;)

oh the link to the mask on a face form is in the artist comments :)

I made it by slush casting some rd-407 mask latex that was pigmented with some basic green acrylic :) a better material to use would be some prosthetic foam latex ;) which I will try out at some point ^^
