Face Painting with Patterns

So … I’m out of country and that’s the main reason for the lack of updates. I really was planning on writing a different post but it’ll take longer to finish. That’s why I decided to update my blog wit this post instead.

For the past few months I experimented painting on different mediums. That includes paper cups, mugs, and my face! Because of the past few trips I wasn’t able to record a lot of videos, but I’m planning on shooting a new one with me painting my face.

Since it’s all for fun and to both experiment and develop my art skills I used cosmetics to paint patterns on my face. Some of the products I used aren’t pigmented enough for the kind of patterns I drew and the artistic effects I wanted to apply on my face.

Here are my latest attempts with the products I used:

Painting Hatayi Motifs 2

Last week I finished recording the last video from painting my Hatai motifs. I used different materials to show you the difference in each one of the painted flowers. You can’t tell the difference until all the paint dried for sometimes when painting with pigments, the paint seems pale a little but when it dries you see it shimmering wonderfully!

Also, there are types of pigments which I’ll talk about in one of my Youtube videos soon.

For the third motif I used the following materials:
—————————————————–
+ Giotto brush n.4
+ Solo Goya gold acrylic
+ Gold pearl pigment ( 鳩居堂:KYUKYODO ) // You can substitute this with any other gold pigment from another brand.
+ Brilliant gold pearl pigment ( Jacquard Pearl EX Products )
+ Winsor and Newton mini watercolors palette
+ Liquid Arabic Gum
+ Auto eraser

And this is the painting process video:

As for the last video here are the materials used:
—————————

30 digital illustrations for Instagram

Last month I decided to challenge myself on Instagram. Being a graphic designer I thought of designing new illustrations or designs for my social media platforms. After thinking about it I came up with a simple idea of uploading a character design daily for a whole month. It’s both a practice and an engaging process of letting people question whom I’ll post next. For me, I truly enjoyed the process of designing those digital illustrations and happy to see how skilled I am at creating textures, backgrounds, and effects.

I’m posting some of the digital illustrations I designed but you can see the rest in my brand Instagram: @Artistakw.

And here is the process video which you can find in my brand’s Youtube channel:
