AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK AT THE CHARACTER WORK IN MY PORTFOLIO.
For my first semester of second year at university, I designed this fortune teller wizard character for a media makeup assessment. My character had to be based on the Wizard or Professor Marvel from the Wizard of Oz! I used both characters from Frank.L Baum’s book as inspiration because Professor Marvel is a fortune teller, and the Wizard ultimately determines Dorothy and her friends fortunes.
This assessment introduced me to the immense world of postiche, and WOW do I respect the patience and talent of people in that profession. I handmade the moustache for my character, and it literally took days to do!
Here are my images of my character:
TYSM to my SUPER FUN AND ABSOLUTELY MAD MODEL, PAPA SPARROW!
My dad is an author currently writing a series about the Native American Indians, so if you want to know more about his upcoming novel, please please go follow him on Facebook at Author Papa Sparrow.
I am really happy with how it looks, and by god did my Dad get into character well! Maybe he should try out acting as opposed to writing.
