How to paint your face like the Cheshire cat from the video game Alice Madness Returns.
Step 1: Base
first outline where your mouth will go, then cover your face in gray face paint leaving the mouth section clear.
Step 2: Fur
to get the fur I added blotches of white face paint by the mouth/under the nose, and on the eyebrows.
Then I took a fan brush with VERY watered down white face paint and drug that over that white blotches to make it look like fur.
Then a got very, very, very watered down black face paint and drug it over the gray face paint.
Step 3: Nose
Using black face paint I made the nose and drug a line from the nose to mouth.
Step 4: Mouth Base
starting the mouth I used white paint to fill in the mouth and black to outline the mouth and fill in the open space in the mouth.
Step 5: Details
using matte black eyeshadow and a little black face paint I detailed the teeth and added shadows to the mouth.
Step 6: Whiskers
Using a detail brush and black paint I made the whiskers.
Step 7: Blood
This character also had blood on his teeth, so I took watered down red face paint to add to the teeth.
Step 8: More Fur
Taking black eyeshadow I added for fur.
Step 9: Body Base
Starting off thebodyi used the gray to make his skeleton like body. Then I took black and cleaned it up.
Step 10: Detail the Body
Using the black eyeshadow I started adding shadows, using the gray as a highlight, and any places that needed more shadows I went in with black body paint.
