ALICE EVERYDAY - FACE STEP BY STEP by Armando-Huerta ALICE EVERYDAY - FACE STEP BY STEP by Armando-Huerta
This is a WIP step-by-step of my take on Alice in Wonderland 'Alice Everyday'

, the face.

Featuring the Miss Mosh :iconmiss-mosh: , who is the most beautiful Pin-Up Model since Bettie Page.

Yeah, I'm not leaving this painting aside. Some paintings require years to be finished. I rather prefer to do one Epic painting in 10 years than a bunch of crap in 10 months. But ain't gonna do the rest of the Alice in Wonderland characters, that may require the rest of my life :lol:

...or should I? :plotting:

Anyway. This have been done using acrylics with airbrush and fine paint brush. The face is always the center of the painting. The most important part. 2 days (10hrs each) of work. I used pretty much all my tricks and experience in this stage. I would love to describe all of them for you but it may take me another 2 days LOL.

Questions are welcome :D

Cheers!.

I'm still unclear about the masking.
I use cut out pieces of paper to get a crisp line. Is that what I'm seeing here?

after the initial airbrushing and you start to define the eyes, nose, and lips is that still airbrush and masking or do you use a traditional brush also? Reading through the comments I saw you mentioned a possible video? I know yo must be busy at comic-con so I'll wait patiently for a response :)

Thanks. I use Strathmore 500 plate illustration board. And for the masking clear tape (overlapped) :)

Thanks :). By overlapping do you mean removing a bit of the clear tape adhesive? Does this board can be used with watercolors? Sorry for asking so much >_<

Well yeah you have to 'wear' the adhesive a little or it will peel the board and paint. By overlapping I mean putting several strips of tape together to cover a large area.

Yes, this board is a wonder, strong and durable. Acrylics are water base so watercolor will not be a problem. You may find it online.

Feel free to ask as many questions as you want ;)

What kind of paint thinner or flow improver do you use for the acrylics?
