Turning into a clown
With the release of "It" i had the idea to do a Pennywise portrait. I am not really fan of horror movies and don't even know if I could take watching It but I really love Pennywise. My wife is a Stephen King fan but didn't want to be the actual subject, she thought it would give her the creeps everytime she looked in the mirror. I ended up doing a self portrait.
The lighting was simple and basic, getting the facial expression was the hard part for me. afrter a few shots I had a good base image though.
Maybe a little scary on it's own, depending who you ask, but a good base image. After adding a bunch of layers to apply the "makeup" and other parts applied.
Added some color layers for the white paint, multiply layers for the red paint and a bunch of adjustment layers to get the eyes, and other parts to look right. Add a some liquify to get the mouth to a creepy shape and the image really starts to come together.
It turned out really good, pretty close to what I had in mind. A few things could be improved upon but this was my first attempt at a project like this. So for a first try I am really happy, my wife still thinks it is creepy though.
