First step is normal for me. I took a white eyeliner pencil and outlined what I wanted to do.

Step 2: Top Base

I started with the top of my head and took a white body paint from Mehron to fill in the top of my head. I let it be a little transparent and streaky to give it texture. Then I took a smaller brush and lightly highlighted with that same white body paint I just made sure it was a little more opaque.

Step 3: Eyes

I know I've said it before, but you create realistic optical illusions with your ability to shadow things like you do. I honestly thought you used some prosthetic this time. But I watched you do the painting and it was your unique ability to shadow things that makes it look that way. Once again, very good work. Bravo!
