Tornado Eyes by KatieAlves Tornado Eyes by KatieAlves
Oh no! Look out little house! It's going to get you!

Thanks to Alysha Hipes for the idea of this one! She was a runner up in the contest I held with Beautyuk!

Last night, almost all of southern Ontario was either in a Tornado Watch or Warning. We didn't get a tornado here, but we did get one of the best lightning shows I've ever seen! It lasted about 4 hours! That's amazingly long for a storm! It started about 8 and kept going until about midnight, but even at 1am, there were still a few flashes!

If you haven't guessed get, I'm in love with storms, so obviously this was a lot of fun to do!

So in this one, there's a tornado, lightning and a little house with a fence getting sucked up!

This is really really lovely and creative! I love storms, too! :3

This is really nice, and actually looks a lot like a storm. I think this is pretty awesome. I like it how you also colored your eyelashes, it's very pretty and elegant. I would so go around like that! x)

I'm guessing on one eye it's lightning while the other is a tornado? That's really cool! This is REALLY creative, and expresses how much you love storms.

Really beautiful piece of work. I also like the sort of sparkle in it, it really looks like a real night sky. I am also amazed on how well you can make the house with makeup! You're very talented. (:
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
45 out of 46 deviants thought this was fair.

Firstly, let me just ask you a question: Who Are YOU?!?! and Secondly: when you had the inspiration for this, did you happen to watch Twister or is this your love of tornadoes? either way it's freaking amazing!!!! the entirety of this deviant in astounding; blending different eyeshadows to create the dark sky of the storm, the silvery glow of the lightning and the powerful winds of the tornado itself. even the little house in incredible; it reminds me of the wizard of oz when dorothy got suck in by that tornado; what you do with this goes above & beyond!!

That's some fantastic makeup!
The fence and little house are so cute, but I absolutely adore the shadings on the lashes. Such a fun idea! C:

I bet you get a boatload of comments asking this but I have to ask on this piece since I've looked high and low for these shades of blue for eyeshadow... What brand did you use and if you know what are the colour swatches on these called? (It's okay if you don't want to say haha. I completely understand)
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
It's BH Cosmetics eyeshadow. They've got 120 palette sets and I combined a bunch of the blues! :)

I can't describe how grateful I am (for the second time :XD:) that you actually liked my idea. Looking at this again it's just amazing, I'm honored to have inspired this.

Holy christ you are good at this!

With all those close-up phothos you sould also post a face-shot even though theres "only" makeup on the eyes, just to se the whole picture and how it looks on ya face as whole.

... absolutly beautiful!!
KatieAlves Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011  Hobbyist Artist
In order to get my eyes perfectly flat, I have to make a REALLY attractive face! haha! I have to raise my eyebrows as high as they can go and make my ears go back (not with my hands XD) and open my mouth to smooth everything out! XD It... would not be pretty!
ASIAlove Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2011
Seriously? You make paintings, on your eyes. Too awesome.
DementedPancake Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2011
Brilliantly creative. I never get dissapointed at the amazing effort you put into your make-up.

haha oh wow that was the other experience I had whilst in Canada. Tornado watch with 22 6-12 year olds trying to sleep in a wood cabin... was fun to say the least! Still, thankfully it didn't come near us, but I do know of some towns nearby that it did hit

once again, beautiful work =D

This I believe was one of the most creative pieces I've seen yet. Nice balance in coulours and also impressive the amount of detail put into it.
Good job
jellybaby86 Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
