We had our very first Face Paint Design Contest in ClownAntics and it was a BLAST! We received various kinds of designs and really had a great time looking at them.
We had fun seeing all these wonderful designs but one entry caught our judge's eye.
Laurel's tiger design is really well-made. The lines are crisp, the colors are well blended. Ultimately, the design is well-executed.
According to Laurel, "Most of my designs are inspired either by movies or by nature. I went to film school and I'm a huge movie buff so I love painting characters or iconic images from movies and cartoons. I also live in one of the most beautiful cities; I've got stunning ocean cliffs on one side, and redwood forests on the other so I take a lot of inspiration from my surroundings."
