Here are two color palets for my skeksis character ! I wanted to gave him some bright colors like green, blue, orange, yellow and red all faded away because of his old age. The two drawings are based on his latex face ! But the plaster mold where I flowed the latex has a little defect... There are some imperfections on his left side to my biggest dismay ! But in front of the unexpected, we have to be creative ! Now this imperfections are some sort of mushroom infection deteriorating the left side of his bloated snout (the red things on the drawings).
I can't choose between the twos... On the one in the left, I decided to put the lighter colors on his snout and the darker colors on the top of his head, and I reversed it on the second painting. The first drawing has a nice gradient, and in the second the colors are more erratic, but the two came out very well. I'll be very glad to hear what you think ^^
PS : now, in addition of his side whiskers he has hair on his eyebrows ! x) I've made some tests on the latex puppet using the "hair punching" technic and I liked how it looks like.
