The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - Famine by KatieAlves The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse - Famine by KatieAlves

The Four Horsemen(women?) Of The Apocalypse - Famine


Now I know these aren't very popular because they're not my "pretty" looks. But every once in a while I need to do some really creepy stuff. Just to get it out of my system. So if you really hate these looks, just skip them, I'll be back to my pretty looks soon :)


On the eyes, I have the scales that Famine typically has with him and then on the lips I have them stitched together and then claw marks to make it look like I'm trying to rip open my mouth. 


I was really praying that no one phoned me when I was doing this, because I couldn't open my mouth at all! This look only looked good dead on. From the side it looked really silly because I had black, brown and grey along the side of my face to make my face look sunken in. 


I asked for suggestions on what themed series I should do next and I loved this idea! So thanks to Dawn Dusk, Heather Blair O'Donnell and Kelsey Tremaine Coon for suggesting this to me!

Like how you shaded the cheeks and under the eyes. Also, the look in your eyes adds to the effect

I love this, I prefer not pretty looks.... Before I even read the caption... I felt that this portrays how I feel when I am in public..... having my lips sewn shut... the blood pouring because I'm trying to say the words that wont come out....

This looks super awesome. It looks like you went in with crayons and drew your own face, in other words, in does not look human xD Which I hope is the point!

To be honest, I like the creepy stuff more than the pretty stuff, it's a lot harder to pull off in my opinion. That said though, I still love the pretty stuff. And besides you're an artist and you're allowed some variety! Loving this by the way!

These are really cool!

The only thing I suggest photo wise is to get rid of the reflection in your eyes. Famine is about hollowness and emptyness, a great lacking. The lack of reflection would be that much heavier and more soulless. But that's just me.

Keep up with the makeup talent! :)
