Intro: Argonian Body Paint
Well, I decided to do an Argonian from Skyrim! It was so much fun but let me just tell you this took me FOREVER! Haha. I painted for about 6 to 7hrs. Worth it! Hope you enjoy, and please check out my youtube page Youtube.com/msmaomaoz
Step 1: First
I sketched out my look with a white eyeliner. (as always)
Step 2: Lines
Taking a yellow body paint (Mehron) I added a line down the center of my face then drug it to the sides where some big scales will be going.
Step 3: Scales
I took a light green body paint (mixed Mehron paint in yellow, green, and white) and put it on the big scales.
Then I took a darker green body paint (mixed Mehron paint with the same colors just less white) and put it all around the scales.
After I took a lot of different shades of eyeshadow (from BH cosmetics) and shaded all over.
Step 4: Eyebrow Thing?
So I used the light green body paint to fill in the brow.
Step 5: Nose
Next I skipped to the nose and added some more scales that flowed with the top of the head the same way I did the other big scales.
Step 6: Shadowing and Stuff
I took dark greens and blacks to shadow around and ontop of the brow. I took yellow body paint to highlight as well.
Step 7: Back to the Nose
I did so some more detail work on the nose with eye shadow.
Step 8: Nostrils
Then I filled in the nostrils with black body paint. (Mehron)
Step 9: By the Eye
I filled in by the eye with the light green body paint.
Step 10: Eye
Then I used a small brush and black body paint to outline where the eye will go.
Step 11: Highlight
I used yellow body paint to highlight around that section.
Step 12: MORE SCALES
I added more scales under the nose the same why I did the others with light green body paint, put dark green body paint around it, then shadow with eyeshadows.
Step 13: NEXT
I filled in the next section with a mix of dark and light green body paint and even some yellow and I drug it with my finger to get a streaky texture.
Step 14: Chin
I filled in the chin with the dark green body paint then I used a brighter green on top. l
Then I went in with more shadows to detail on top.
Step 15: Lips
I took a yellow body paint to fill in where the lips should be.
Step 16: Details
I went around the face with dark green eyeshadow to add more details and also shadow the nose.
Step 17: Eye
Finished the eye by filling it in with white.
Step 18: More Scales
I used the brighter green to add scales on the chin then when around them with the eyeshadow.
Step 19: Stipple
I used a stipple sponge with black body paint on the chin then I used yellow under the eye.
Step 20: Black!
I used black body paint to cover the parts of my face I didn't need.
Step 21: Horns
I used air dry clay to make some horns, then I placed them on my face with spirit gum, then I painted them brown (mehron)
Step 22: Body
I painted my neck and part of my chest with the light green, then I painted the rest with brown. I swirled it around with my brush to give it texture.d
Step 23: Even MORE Details
I painted red on the outside of the brown and I used a stipple sponge with black on the brown.
Step 24: More Details!
I used green eye shadow to bring out some neck lines, then I used a stipple sponge with green and yellow on the green.
