Cyborgs creep me out…so naturally I needed to become one! I’ve never attempted anything like this before making this extra fun to try. As usual I used Pinterest for inspiration and this tutorial to create my finished look.
This was a little tedious to paint as there’s a good amount of shadowing and detailed line work. In the middle of the painting I wasn’t sure how well it was going to look as it went through an “ugly” period. I’m glad I pushed through my inner critic and kept working. The end result was worth the earlier frustrations.
I was going to use a metallic silver wig for this look, but after finishing it I decided it looked better as a more “natural” look versus glam. If you look close enough you can see the added detail of the cyborg hair coming through…just kidding, that’s my grey hair! Eeeek- it’s almost as scary as the cyborg face!!!
After doing all of the painting I made fake blood to add to the effect! I loved how it turned out- so gross! It was super easy to make. I’m going to be putting up a sort of tutorial tomorrow on how to make it. Your kids will think you are the coolest parent ever if you make them blood…and it’s edible. Bonus! (Here’s the link for the Edible Fake Blood.)
And now, because I can only be serious for so long…
It’s not every day you see a smiling cyborg…
Until next time…
I’ll be BACK!!!
(you didn’t really think I could resist, did you?!)
