As promised yesterday, here’s a closer look at the serial killer character.
It’s hard when wearing a halloween mask to make it look like it’s anything but a mask, and I would love to be able to afford a proper silicone mask for these purposes but that’s not exactly feasible, and would require a lot more preparation than just slipping it on at an urbex location.
In this instance, therefore, I had to make do with photoshop and covering the areas of obvious skin as much as possible to make it look like the character was fully scarred and not obviously some guy in a toy mask.
Here’s a shot of the face before I processed it:
I know I could improve in many areas of photoshop, but I felt this one didn’t turn out too badly and it blends into the mask quite well. The problem will be doing this on a continual basis for this character, though as I imagine most shots will be using the mask to simply cover the face rather than to show details of the guy, it shouldn’t be too often that it needs to be done.
