Yes, that's real facepaint and not a photoshop job. I got a taste for it doing the Clowns challenge and now I want to do it at every opportunity. How weird does that make me?! And no, I don't want to wear women's makeup either (but that's the plan for tomorrow!).

Problem here is the focus isn't on the eye, but I was dicking about in the dark again and getting focus where I want whilst maintaining DoF was a pain, so I gave up (!)

Lit from 2x430ex, one at my feet and one handheld at arms length front right of me (I need stands and brollies badly).

PP: not much - convert from raw, bit of contrast, drop exposure 0.25, burnt in eyes to give a more devilish look (and to help reduce the lack of focus), noise ninja, add border, resize, usm, save for web.

That's quite a bit of dedication to the cause.

Yeah, focus on the eyes would have improved this. But it looks like it was loads of fun to do.

Your focus may not be perfect on the eyes, but this is really neat! I can't believe you actually used all that face paint, that would drive me crazy! lol
Very cool, love the title too.

What a great makeup job.. whoa. Nicely done portrait. Light's nice... some quibble about things like duelling catchlights (left eye), but not me... ;-)

Seems a tad oversaturated, what was your white balance set to? :-P LOL

Great shot and effort!

Pretty fantastic makeup job and I know what ya mean, I used it a few times and I love it. Even have a video of me applying makeup for my Devilish images, do a search you will find the posting in the forums if interested. Even though the focus isn't on the eyes I think it works rather well here because of the smoothness of the makeup. That appears to be some very nice makeup you are using.

Yes, I've done the face paint SPs, too, but not applied as well as it is here. Good job.

The Blue Man pissed off! Love the paint and the crop. I have tried using an appeture at about F8 or even 11 to try and get focus a little better when shooting myself.

more face paint! I really like your shot, the red is very evil and devious looking, and your eyes look dilated which makes it even more creepy! Great job!

I like the crop!! And you do look devious. Face paint seems to be the order of the day... wonder if I should join you guys?? LMAO!! Nice lighting too.

Today must be paint day. I really like this. Those pupils are HUGE. I would have gone with a more devious smile to match the title.
