WARPAINT by DestinyBlue WARPAINT by DestinyBlue
If it's war you want, it's war you'll get. I've played nice, but now I stand my ground. Don't underestimate me, I'll show you just how deadly my sting can be.

Inspired by a girl I saw putting on makeup on a train, it was a pretty bumpy ride, but she knew exactly what she was doing, eyeliner in one flick, lipstick gliding in a perfect circle, I swear she also stopped just before a really bumpy bit, like she knew. Honestly I thought even if it did go wrong, like she got lipstick on her cheek, she would just roll with it and turn it into warpaint. She had that kind of determination, it already looked like she was applying warpaint! :D

I've been working from life more recently and wanted to test my skills, also using a limited palette, which is very rare for me! XD Still working on getting better. Hope you like so far ^-^ Hmm think I made it too blurry though... trying to control focus and limit unnecessary detail..

Peace, love and warpaint,
~Destinyblue x:heart:x

I think that blurry effect looks very good in this picture, this is actually one of my favorites in your gallery, it looks so realistic I could touch her face! ^^

I went and brought a frame especially for the print I bought of this at Sydney supanova! It now sits very proudly atop my bookshelf!

Hey I want to thank you for creating this. It inspired me to take on more personal projects and focus less on shooting things I don't want to shoot. Anyways, you inspired me to shoot this last week.…

I'm not sure how I came across your painting... I did a little search after the fact and found you on deviant art. Anyways, keep up the cool work.
