Still-Practiced Pagan Ritual Costumes

These are not your average Halloween costumes. For two years, French photographer Charles Fréger has been traveling throughout European countries, trying to capture the spirit of what he calls “tribal Europe” in his Wilder Mann series. What he found was a huge array of pagan rituals, mainly related to the winter solstice and spring renewal, focusing on the common myth of the “wild man.”

It appears that the tradition of men dressing up as wild animals and monsters, which dates back to neolithic times and shamanism, is still very alive. The mythological figure of a “wild man” represents the complicated relationship humans have with nature and life and death cycles. His series explores the different interpretations of such figures – while some cultures depict him as covered in flowers or straws, others possess the features of bears, goats, or horned and hairy beasts.

Just a sketch of my undead hunter from World of Warcraft. I know she isn’t wearing pants. I forgot to draw them. Oh well, maybe I’ll finish it another day.

How I draw eyes - (bad) english translation.

1. Roughly sketch

2. On a layer named “eyelash”, with a dark brown color, and a hard paintbrush, I draw the eyelashes.

3. On a second layer “white” (creative, isn’t it) placed under the first layer, I fill the eyes with white color, opacity between 40% and 60%. Following the light, one won’t be as light as the other one, so you need to change the opacity.

4. We don’t need the line anymore. With a very soft brush, darken the corners of the white, to make it more round. Don’t forget the shadows under the upper-lashes.

5. Hard brush, 20% flow.
Taking notice of the source of light, add the irises colors.

6. Same brush, same flow, add more details, place the pupil.

7. Same brush but diameter 2px, dodge tool, 30% exposure, add more details inside the irises.

8. Hard brush with a flow at 20%. Chose two color lighter than the basis and add, again, more detail to make the iris more realistic.

9. Dodge tool - light color, chose a soft brush to light up some areas. Then, with a hard brush, add the pupil in the same color than the eyelashes. Depending on your light, chose either white or yellow (or pink, or blue…) color to add the reflection.
Don’t forget to work on the lower eyelid with your basical skin color to be more realistic.

10. Finally, with a soft brush and a dark color (the same than the eyelash), I soften the make up, intending to give a smoky-eye look.

AND TADAAAA ! Hope this will be helpful despite of my bad english U_U

freeglassart asked: You may get asked this a lot, so please excuse my ignorance - but how do you go about constructing character expressions and body language and such? Thanks!

makanidotdot:

Besides The Basics (construction of heads and skulls and muscles and skeletons and how they move), I’ll go over some things I’ve been trying to work on myself lately:

1. Treat expressions as a single gesture of the face/head, as opposed to a head and then individual features dumped on a plate and arranged into an expression.

First, just get down the big shapes of your expression, just like you would for a pose.  

So say I wanna do a low angle angry pose.  I know the features are gonna be all mashed down at the bottom because of perspective.

 Scribble it down

start to put on features

fix stuff

put on more stuff

fix stuff again

image

erasing and flipping and stuff a whole bunch until you are happy with it or stop caring

Whole head is a gesture!image

2. Just like a facial expression, jot down where the important parts of an entire pose goes first.  You can force the rest of the body to fit the pose.

So here I knew I wanted the shoulders tilted a certain direction, and te hand to be in that particular position in front of her face.

That’s the simplest explanation I got.  Don’t be afraid to push and pull faces and bodies around! Worry about being “on model” last!
