So as you know, I work as a face painter at the Theme parks (All Disney parks and Universal) and sometimes it gets veeeryy slow at work. Nobody wants their face painted 8:00 at night!

So us face painters get very bored and start painting on ourselves. Today I ended up painting little budgies all over my arm.





I painted Lacewings (favorite mutation :loveeyes:) and a blue series Opaline as I have a big soft spot for them.

Ahh! Thanks everybody! ^^ I'm adding more budgie paints!

My default face is a blue swirl design with flowers and butterflies. This time I added the tiny budgie to it!


Today I was at Universal and during the holidays they force us to do holiday themed face paints, but I was not to be swayed from painting a budgie!

Thus! Holly Budgie!

Thank you! :budgie:

I've decided to turn the Holly budgie into a series, each day doing a different color mutation as I am a giant nerd when it comes to the different budgie colors. So I'll be posting every couple of days with new paints! If anybody has any recommendations on what color budgie I should do next let me know!

First up!


And, of course, how could I not make a Lacewing; one of my favorite mutations after all! Complete with some mistletoe.


Last but not least, some very tiny arm budgies. This was a test to see how tiny I could paint a budgie. :p That blue one perching on the bottom is just a tiny bit bigger than a thumb nail.

You have a real talent Reese,your work is beautiful.
I used to love drawing and painting when I was younger, some of my cartoons where used in a popular childrens comic here in the UK, I really wanted to work freelance for companies such as DC Thomson who published the Beano comic but I couldn't produce the work fast enough, not only is your artwork beautiful but you have the skill to create a piece of art in minutes.
Please carry on posting your work !!
Pete :)

:eek: Thank you guys! I've never actually considered painting on canvas before to be honest. Starting my job as a face painter is the only time I've seriously picked up a paint brush.(other than art classes in school but that's different!) I'm actually more of a digital artist!





First one I've been painting on and off for the past couple of months so it's not done yet.

I did go out and buy paints for a sculpture that I'm working on so maybe I'll consider using some for a canvas painting! ;)

People always tell me I should do tattoos, but I'd be so scared to be a tattoo artist! XD With face paint, if I mess up I could easily fix it! Tattoos, not so much. haha

One more budgie paint that I did yesterday. :) I'm off for Christmas eve so no painting for today! Sorry!



Someone actually wanted this painted on their face but I'm almost certain she had no idea what kind of bird this was. :giggle:
I had just returned from getting some water as she sat in the chair so I wasn't the one who she first interacted with at the register. Conversation went as follows:

Her: I think I changed my mind. Can I just get something small on my cheek?
Me: Yes you can. I can paint anything as long as it's not copyrighted.
Her: Oh..Can I get Olaf painted on my cheek?
Me: Sorry but that is a copy righted character.
Her: Oh okay. Is that a little snow bird on your face? Can I get that instead?
Me: Sure! You want it exactly the same or do you want to make it a different kind of bird?
Her: Keep it the same. I really like yours!

More Budgie paints!

Dominant Pied- I did this one on Christmas day. I was quite sleep deprived so it didn't turn out as well as I would have liked it but! Ah well.


Albino/DEC/DF Spangle- I did all three of these yesterday. Started with the Albino and then decided to do the other two because why not! They all look similar! :)




DF Spangle ended up looking a little flaky. It was late at night and I kept yawning, causing the paint to crack and flake. :eek:
