xtina on her video "the voice within'.i like this video..its very simple..everything is in low-key,even xtina herself...she did'nt wear to much make up.and she's very cute on that part where she's running with a smlie on her face,almost giggling.i hope i can find a capture of that scene..and the part where she layed down on that....ice?whatever!!doin the hair is very simple..i used dark charcoal then smoothen it with a cotton balls moisten with oil tto achieve that even,smooth darkness.at first i thought that dopin this one is pretty easy,i found out its NOT!!!why?it doesnt have a high-quality details?well that is also the answer.and since this is a video capture the hard edges are somehow diminished.achieving a porcelain like shading is quite hard to do.after finishing the eyes and the brow and lining the nosetrils,lips and the shape of the face,i put a preliminary shading using hb through out the face.then smoothen it by using tissue.then after finishing the medium and dark shading on her nose,i did her forehead(i used 3b,5b for the darker shading...and if you want to somehow lighten the shadings use a tissue,but when it comes on blending dark shading it is better to use your finger tips)then the shading for her cheeks,lips and chin.the lips is really easy to do since it did'nt have lines and so much gloss..the last thing to do is the oily effects.i eraseed the preliminary shadings on the middle of her forehead, on the bridge and tip of the nose,on the cupid's bow of her upper lip and some on her chin.i always do the shiny,light,moist part when all the shadings are done. i wish i have my personal PC and Scanner so that i can show you all the process and techniques.
expect more captures...from "beautiful"," fighter", "tilt your head back".dont anticipate to see a capture of her vidoes of her singles from her first cd.though i will some captures from her first sapnish album...so there!!!
