  • How to paint a pair of character shoes. Nightmare Before Christmas Shoes :) - Step 1
    Step 1

    i used boots for this one as i wanted to put quiet a large picture on a shoe and had tried perviously with heels and flats and i couldnt get the image i wanted on them and i think they look "witchy" to match the theme lol
    both shoes have different characters on them so ill start with jacks side

    Step 2

    so first i drew in my characters(dont worry i put a template at the bottom of the project :)) and the i painted the more vibrant characters in white, including jacks coat, i know it makes no sense to paint it white when we are gonna paint it black again but it does stand out with a white undercoat :) so we have the mayor, zero, jack and a mummy, (the dots on the right hand side were other characters that i wasnt happy with so i painted over them in the end)

    i love that shade of green so i use it whenever i can. i thought that the overall scene was lacking colour so the green was my background it it brought the more somber coloured characters to life i think

    i put more detail in the mummy and around the pink demons eye. you need a very steady hand for this because i used black paint. i dont recommened using a pen as even the most waterproff pens with fade in time.

    this is the shoe from the other side. i painted it all green with a gap at the toes, there should be a line you can run your fingers along on any shoe, i usually stop there.
    when the grey has dried i first painted the black scene, waited for it to dry and added a very dark grey and then a very light grey, all done but different mixtures of white and black.
