Don't forget to check the video on my youtube and say hello :D
In this instructable i'm going to show how I recreated the children of the forest from Game of thrones.
Step 1: This Is the Look As a Photo
Step 2: Adding a Green Base
For the base i'm using an aquapaint. I started off with this green colour and a kabuki brush
If you swirl the kabuki brush you get an even and airbrushed effect
Step 3: Adding Brown on Top of the Green
If you already have the perfect forest green shade, then this is not neccesary.
My green was too bright so I added a washed out brown aquapaint on top of it
Step 4: Breaking Up the Texture
So the children of the forest live in the forest (obviously) which wouldn't result in a clean and flawless face.
To break up the texture i'm using a texture sponge dipped in black facepaint, and spread it across the face
Step 5: Drawing the Forehead Lines
Using an eyeliner brush and black facepaint I'm drawing the forehead lines. Starting from the inner corner of my eyebrow and extending it to the sides of my forehead
Step 6: Shading
To give some depth to those lines i'm taking a fluffy brush with black eyeshadow and start shading underneath them
Step 7: Adding Depth
with the same black eyeshadow i'm drawing a V shape on the forehead to create the pattern
Step 8: Highlighting
To make the pattern on the forehead more noticable i'm taking a white eyeshadow and i'm putting that above the black lines on the forehead.
Step 9: Darkening the Eyes
For this step I'm using black eyeshadow again and an eyeshadow brush. This doesn't have to be done neatly, just make sure all the areas around the eye are black too make them look dark and a bit sunken in.
Step 10: Lining the Eyes
For an even darker eye effect i'm using a pencil liner to line my waterline
Step 11: Drawing the Branch Pattern
The children seem to have a branch like pattern on the forehead and the sides of their head.
To recreate this i'm taking a liquid liner and drawing the same pattern on, also connecting with the forehead lines
Step 12: Filling in the Lips
To make the lips dark i'm using a dark grey liquid lipstick
Step 13: Adding Pattern to Your Neck
For this i searched up tree patterns and followed those. I'm using a really small paint brush for this step and black aquapaint
Step 14: Another View of the Neck Pattern
Step 15: Spray Your Hair Black
Or just paint it black, or use a wig. Whatever you prefer :) The children have dark hair so I just sprayed it black with black hair spray
And thats it!
Step 16: You're Done!
