We have got Raw Umber, which is a brown, dark brown. And what we’re gonna do with that is, mix a little bit into the fleshy colour, that’s skin colour, just to add a another shade, and with that colour, we are going to then start to add a few little lines, just so we know where to put everything.
So, this gonna finalise the mapping out of the face. And I said she’s got this little chin, and then I think I need to just get a little bit of black. I’m just gonna slightly adjust the chin there. So, just that little black will adjust the shape.
So, we’re marking for her nose, the eyes. They have these big eyes. Now, with white, I’m going to map out where the hair is. It’s really important to do this. We should get the composition right. So, the same with this one.
Now, we’re gonna start to add some detail. And this is for those gorgeous eyes socket. Not like I have. I will kill for eye sockets like this. Adam: Why eye sockets? Kirsty: Like how you can see all the.
..because she’s got like a big eyelid. Kirsty: Like, she’s got like a big eye socket and a big eyelid. No eyebrows though. Adam: No eyebrows? Kirsty: Maybe that’s what’s freaking you out. Adam: Hmm, no! Kirsty: No, not that.
Adam: I don’t think so. Kirsty: Right! Now, we’ve got the shape, we can put the white inside the eyes. So, it’s important at this stage to think about where the light is, where the light hits the face.
So because I want to add a bit of warmth in the face, I’ve now made slightly pinkier… pinkier, pinky orange flesh colour. Bit like warm beige. Adam: We’re not even doing acrylic and you can still bring that thing into it.
Kirsty: Yeah! Kirsty: See how much I’m loving the characters. Adam: What’s on the end? Kirsty: Oh, I forgot. I knew it about an hour ago but I forgot. You know what they look like? Cats. Adam: Hmm!, a little bit, but cats are nice.
. Kirsty: The cat with very small eyelashes. They do look very feline though, don’t they? Adam: Yeah! Kirsty: I think because their eyes are so big and wide and… Adam: They look like pouty and chubby-cheeked.
.. it’s like you wanna go… pfft. That’s exactly why I always slap them and make that pfft. Adam: You know, I think that’s what they look like. They look like chubby cheeks Kirsty: Not at all. Kirsty: Hmm, no! I think the Podlings probably do.
Adam: The what? Kirsty: Podlings. Adam: Alright! Kirsty: Some of the… Adam: You know way too much of this. Kirsty: It’s another creature. Adam: You remember Pob? Kirsty: Oh, I remember Pob. Adam: Channel 4 on a Sunday morning.
Kirsty: Loved Pob. Adam: Pob. Oh, Pob! Kirsty: I mean, why did we like these weird things? Adam: Mmm! Adam: Haven’t said I liked it, I just remembered it. Kirsty: Yeah, you liked it. You wouldn’t remember it.
Kirsty: * because it’s me liking this you think it’s weird, I think it’s… Kirsty: I think with the Dark Crystal, it holds many nice childhood memories… Adam: Hmm! Kirsty: …and watching it. And I think when you’ve got a connection with a TV program like that, it kind of fills you with happiness, don’t it? Because that’s like the best time of your life, ain’t it? No problems, no worries and then we become adults.
Gonna add a tiny bit of that red to this brown mixture just to make it a little bit warmer. I don’t want to like paint red lips on her. She’s not like that. You wanna get the colour on first of all and then you can add the detail, the highlights and the lights shading.
Alright! I’m gonna start to add pupils now. Kirsty: And this is when everything can go really wrong. Adam: It’s when you can make them cross-eyed. Kirsty: Yeah, that’s the thing. We wanna make them still pretty but not cross-eyed.
It’s like as soon as you start adding a little bit of shape and highlight in, then it starts to come alive. Kirsty: The face does, don’t it? Adam: Hmm! You mean gets creepy. Kirsty: No, Adam. Kirsty: Add a bit of yellow to this palette and we’ll need like the tiniest amount, with some white and a little bit of brown.
And there’s a dark rim around t he hazel eye, which we’ll do with the dark brown. You don’t wanna do it with black, it’s too harsh. Alright! So, we need to add that gloss to her eyes, so we’re gonna do that with a shine highlight in white.
Let’s start adding the hair. She’s got gorgeous hair. I think it might have come from the same people this my hair came from. * that’s my hair. This is not my hair. Beautiful hair there. Well, it’s like a champagne blonde.
Very nice. Alright! So, let’s get some white. Tiny bit it of that brown. Add bit of warmth. A little bit of flesh colour. So, this is gonna be nice base colour to work on. Because if you see, it’s not actually white, even though you can’t see very well on camera.
See, that’s the colour. Looks very white on here but once we start to add white to it, you’ll see that it’s not quite white. Now, I’m gonna mix that to a darker shade. Dark shade of pale and that’s some colour to the hair as well.
There’s a shadow between the hair and the face, and we need to do that. I can’t forget about that. We’re gonna make a wash. I’ll come around with her hair liners. We use this to go to go up the parting as well.
We can use the same colour to add some detail to the hair. And we can start to add the details of the plait. With all these gorgeous braids and they kind of remind me of Game of Thrones, don’t they? Kirsty: A little bit Game of Thrones aren’t they Ad? Adam: Hmm! She has better hair.
Adam: A lit bit more elaborate. Kirsty: It’s not a competition. Not a braid comp. Adam: Yeah! Hers were always tied up though, they’re just hanging down aren’t they? Kirsty: Yeah, they do have some like, you know, if you watch it, you know, actually watch it you’ll see.
Adam: You keep saying if I watch it. Kirsty: If you watch it, you can see that they do have some nice hairstyles. Kirsty: It’s too relaxing for me. Adam: Remember when we talked about that thing of me sitting watching paint dry? Adam: This is one of those.
Kirsty: I know. Adam: I know I’m getting to see it happen… Kirsty: Yeah. Adam: …as well. I’m sure everyone else will be more enthralled when it happens in time-lapse. Kirsty: Yeah, I’m sure they will.
Adam: Like, “Oh, my God! How did she do it so quickly?” Kirsty: “That come from nowhere!” “One minute, it was a blob on the nail and now it’s like amazing.” Adam: “But we’re only one nail in.” Kirsty: “Just look! It looked like this.
It looked like that” Adam: That’s good. Yeah, that’s a good…so, that shows you basically… Kirsty: Progression, patience is needed, but look at the progression. Don’t race ahead. You will have to take your time.
Apologies! It’s all about progression. And right, now… tiny bit of highlight on her hair, going a bit crazy. It’s going a bit crazy and… Adam: She doesn’t look as creepy on the nail. Kirsty: You fancy her, don’t you, on the nail? Adam: I wouldn’t go that far but I don’t think she looks as creepy.
Kirsty: Hmm! Have I beautified her? Adam: Yeah, you stuck a filter on. Kirsty: Now, I know you are all probably thinking, well, she’s got that little head-dress on, we’re gonna add that in gel polish afterwards.
So, don’t need to worry about that. Alright! We need to make a grey-blue. Adam: A grey-blue? Kirsty: A grey-blue for her outfit. So, we’ve got a little bit of blue. Pop that on there. Bit of white. Alright! Let’s add this colour.
Alright! It’s textured, so I’m just dotting to create a little bit of texture. I’m gonna matte top coat her face, but then I’m gonna come in with the glass around here. So, I’ll do the matte first. Cure that and then we’ll get the top coat.
Get a shiny top coat. I’ll be able to use the brush for some of it but I’m gonna get…hmm, actually… gonna get round here, I’m just gonna use a smaller brush to… so I can get a little bit closer.
If you’re wondering what these little white marks are, there you are, so, I know where to put my 3D work. So, these are very nice. I do like them. But we’re going to do…using Cleopatra from the Urban Graffiti range, we are going to do her headrests.
Head-rest? It’s not freaking head-rest. Adam: It’s a headdress. Kirsty: Head-dress. Kirsty: Cure that. We’re gonna use some of the Honey Bronze as well. This is like a finer shimmer, whereas, that one’s a glitter.
This one’s a glitter, that one’s a shimmer. I’m just gonna drag a little bit of that over, just through the centre, just to add a little bit more highlight and definition. And she has this little necklace.
So, we’re gonna use the gel for the necklace. It’s like a little leaf. Pop that in. I’ll need a little bit of topcoat. I’m gonna use this small brush again and just add a little bit of top coat over the top to make it super shiny.
Same on the necklace. And cure that. She’s so pretty! Adam: She is. She is not as creepy. You definitely put a beautiful filter on her. When you put the ears on them, it’ll be creepy. Kirsty: Yeah, we’ll do that once we’ve done the face of this one.
Kirsty: Is he not as scary as well? Adam: Mm-hmm! Kirsty: Is he not as scary? Adam: Hmm! He’s definably creepier Adam: …and I don’t know, they’re creepy. Kirsty: Than the prettier one? Adam: No. Kirsty: Yeah, I did.
You know what, you just reminded me. I did think about that earlier Adam: Yeah, whatever! Kirsty: No, I did. Adam: I gave you the idea. Adam: Don’t try and claim it for yourself. Kirsty: Alright, whatever! [Kirsty singing]
