Assessment Y1S2: SFX

19 Jul

Yesterday I went to Uni and finally got all my work handed in. Year One; complete!

I also stopped by to do my Special FX assessment, this was based on the ability to create, apply and remove a bald cap (you may have seen me post my home practice on on myself previously!)

The general idea I developed for my final piece focussed on demons and was created as an artistic concept for a comic book antihero. Something you might see in Batman perhaps.

Whilst I did get assessed on the above, my final product actually had the bald cap covered by black crow feathers, but I think this looks great. I created the horns with millenary wire and furniture foam, which I then sprayed black.

A big thank-you to my model Mary! I couldn’t have done it without you!

Leeds Uni Designers Competition

17 Jul

I have received my images from the Leeds Uni designers competition I worked at!

I really enjoyed this experience, I met so many lovely and enthusiastic people.  The main thing I have learnt from this is to check images whilst being shot, as in some of these particular elements of the makeup/face have not been presented how I would have liked them to be shown.

I think that shoot further developed my ability to stay calm under pressure and remain organised and on the ball at all times, I also enjoyed working as part of a larger creative team. I would be happy to work with them again for more experience!

Leeds Uni Gala Face-Painting!

17 Jul

Once again I was able to work with the wonderfully talented Liz Buff.

This time it was for Leeds University Gala, where we face-painted each other and anyone that wanted to get into the spirit of the day!Iit

It was great to get chance to work and chat with Liz again, as she will be soon moving to the south of France; hopefully this will open up some work opportunities with her in France in the nearish future! As she was leaving, she also gave me a great goodie bag of items she no longer needed.  Love you Liz!
