Transformers Megatron Face Paint by Natalia Kirillova

Megatron, the Decepticon leader is one of the main Transformers characters. He is the eternal enemy of Optimus Prime - commander of the Autobots. His cherished dream is to establish his dominance on Cybertron, and in the future - in the whole Universe.

I found many images of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, but Megatron is almost not in the selection of drawings face paint, so we'll try to draw a mask of the leader of the Decepticons.

Step 1

The first step - mix white and black paint to get a gray color, using this color and a Loew Cornell Round No.1 Brush draw a sketch of Megatron. Start your drawing with the robot head to see how much space you need to leave under the shoulders. Hands directed in the direction of the nose, giving it the shape of the mask.


Step 2

To simulate metal, I chose the color Superstar - Silver Shimmer 056, it fills the space tightly and easily shaded.  TAG #4 Filbert Brush (7/16") is convenient because one side can draw large areas of the picture, and the other thin stripes.


Step 3

Then, as shown in the photo, paint over the dark color of the outfit, for this silver color is mixed with black.

Step 4

Kryvaline Round Brush #0 (1/16") - this thin brush is especially easy to trace the smallest details. Let's start the stroke with the head of Megatron, at this point you need to be very careful that the lines turned out to be smooth, I almost did not breathe when circling these details. ) And my little model - daughter, too. ) 

In our drawing there are several details of Purpleand  Red color - for example, eyes, do not forget to make white highlights in them.


Step 5

Using a BAM Mini Stencils Gradient - 1206  will give our design a more complete and interesting look. Dip the sponge in purple and then white for a lighter tone and fill the area under the hands of Megatron. We trace the picture, also observing the subtlety of the line. On the suit, we will make a few scratches, as our robot fought in many battles and has many wounds.


Step 6

The last step is to draw white highlights on the protruding details to give the Megatron a more three-dimensional look.



I hope you enjoyed this look! I will be glad to see your designs!

My name is Natalia, I live and work in Russia, the city of Yaroslavl. I do face painting for 7 years. One of my favorite destinations - belly painting, (so great to see how kids who have recently been in the tummy are already beginning to walk, talk and learn to draw) in my collection of 40 drawings for pregnant women. I've won a lot of face painting contests and now I want to teach you how to create beautiful drawings on faces. The most beautiful thing when you show your child the finished picture to see his shining smile
