Bringing Comic to Life

comic book halloween makeup look


Halloween is coming and I’ve been watching so many tutorials on YouTube to give me ideas as to what to actually dress like this year. Plenty were terrifying whilst others were amazing. I’ve seen a comic book, pop art style videos and images and thought I’d attempt it. Inspired look I’d say. I must admit, from the front, it doesn’t look like anything, just lines, thick black eyebrows and makeup gone wrong. I also didn’t have red paint to do the dots or have much time.

But it looks a lot better from the side though doesn’t it?

And here is what photoshop can actually do. And it looks like I’ve got the chicken pox too.

    It's great how photoshop works but it helps that you have nice skin that can easily be animated through effects.

    The last pic somehow reminds me of Jessica Rabbit! But woooow, the side photo really looks cartoonised. I would have thought it was photoshopped as well.

    We son't celebrate halloween in India which is a pity coz i'd love to go trick and treating! And wear vampire dresses and do gothic makeup and eat halloween candy!

    OMG you look so pop art!
    It will be even better if you made the red dots by your self, not photoshop it hehe

    That looks cool! Maybe I should try it some times. πŸ˜€

    Super creative! I don't think I'll ever do much halloween "make up" though, my skin is oily (esp if I'm having a fun night out) and it'd just be a mess πŸ˜›
