How to Body Paint HALO Master Chief FREE VIDEO!
Hello, this is Paul Roustan and welcome to
my tutorial on how to body paint Master Chief with Airbrush. I will be using European Body Art’s Vibe Gold,
Black, Green, and White Water Based makeups. The airbrushes used will be the Badger Omni
3000 & Vega 2000. Mixing a 50/50 Ratio of the green and Gold
will result in a slightly brighter metallic green. Freehand Airbrush this new metallic green
color as a base coat in all the areas you plan to show as green armor. Do not worry about the edges at this point,
as we will define them momentarily with the color black. All you should be concerned about here is
getting nice even coverage of the color as a base coat. Using a straight edge, made from acetate,
mylar, cardboard, drawing board, or pellon, begin to define the edges of the armor and
fill in the empty spaces with a solid base coat of black. You may notice that my shield has one side
straight and one side curved. This gives you more options with creating shapes. Now, using the same shield, begin to create
form and dimension by creating shapes onto the armor. Think 3 dimensionally and try not
to be too random. You will need to become comfortable with painting
with the shield to understand where the paint overspray will begin and end. So practice
on a piece of paper or news print before hand. Continue to do this step on the remainder
of the green basecoat. Get as creative as you like. Notice how I use repetitive patterns against
standout shapes to differentiate the design. This contrast gives the result a more unique
look than just using the same pattern all over the armor. Also, don’t concern yourself too much with
perfection. Think ‘suggestion’ as the viewers eye will be looking at this illusion as a
whole, not in detail. Now, using European Body Art Vibe White, and
a fresh shield cut with a unique polygonal shape, I begin a repetitive pattern over the
black base coat. I differentiate the black armor shield work
by keeping the white detail predominantly horizontal lines. I envision this material
to be flexible because it is built in sections with numerous joints. Continue this process on the remainder of
the black base coat. Be very careful not to overspray onto the green armor, as this area
is intended to appear underneath it. The final step is adding subtle highlights.
Still using the vibe white, create pinpoint bright spots onto the body painting. Be careful
not to overdo it. A great way of understanding good placement
of these points is to imagine which corner of each three dimensional object is nearest
to you. Try and imagine one set light source, and keep it as accurate throughout the body
painting as possible. And that’s all there is to it. Now get creative!
How can YOU apply these same techniques to other body paint ideas?
