Orange and Blue by KatieAlves Orange and Blue by KatieAlves
I've got a GIVEAWAY happening on my facebook page! [link] It's a facebook only giveaway, so if you don't have a facebook account, don't worry! I'll have more giveaways soon!

I'm having HUGE artist block. I can't come up with anything! I'm really not happy with this look, but I haven't posted anything in a while and I figured a few might enjoy it. A few nights ago I tried to do a Wreck it Ralph design and... lets just say it was one of the worst things I've ever created. Oh god, so bad! I'm thankful for everyone that's still sticking with me through this slow, crappy time. Hopefully I'll be able to create SOMETHING better soon.

Makes me think of Portal. Love it. What did you use to make the orange pop? Is it just a very pigmented shadow, or did you just prime?

I used Sugarpill's Flamepoint I believe with Lime Crime's eyeshadow helper :)

I usually do them with eyeshadows, but this one I used eyeliner to make it really black and sharp!

also: for lips you could do the same thing but as a gradient.

If you have artist block, why not do something for spring? Like a green lid with blue cut-crease and a light yellow highlight so it kinda resembles a grassy field on a bright sunny day?

This design reminds me of Midna when she is back in her twilight princess form.

for someone whose having an artist's block this is really good!

Though I agree the eyebrows are a bit thick...

Maybe you should do a Chinese Dragon. Or Moulin Rouge. Or something with Cherry Blossoms? Or a dragon fruit. lol I'm just coming up with random shit but hey whatever get's your imagination going. :)

This is a beautiful look! I think the eyebrows detract from it. The blue, red and sparkles are lovely together, but the eyebrows are so sharp that they pull focus. Know what I'm saying? A gorgeous combination, though!

I love all your work. You always use such gorgeous colors! If you're having trouble coming up with new designs perhaps you could honor us with a few tutorials?

As far as suggestions, I would love to see you do some makeup perhaps based around science fiction? Star Wars, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica. Or the more whimsical Eureka or Warehouse 13? Dr. Who or Stargate?
