Hello everyone, it’s AliceYuric! I’m so happy to present my final work of NYX Face Awards – Wonderland after Dark. I expected any other final theme, but not this one, that’s for sure. I immediately realized that American McGee’s Alice would be my source of inspiration… No matter how trite it was on my part. I will not go deep into how significant this game to me, its history and atmosphere. I decided that it would be much better if I put my idea and imagination into this topic. Only one look that you now see, I tried to make it as similar as possible to the original. This is such a reference from me to this game. The second look is a bust of Alice or a chess piece. I noticed such sculptures in the game, but only figures of other heroes. I decided to make Alice right away. Actually, I wanted to convey the effect of glass or red crystal. I don’t know, succeeded I am in it or not, but it was very interesting for me to draw something like that. My goal is to reveal this look like one of Alice’s sides, but I didn’t think about how dark or light it is. The symbol of Mercury represents the duality of Alice because Mercury rules the zodiac sign Gemini. I would not touch astrology on, but in the game quite often appear symbols of planets that I didn’t understand before. Symbolism plays an important part in the atmosphere of the game, and I think it has own aesthetics. The third look – The Queen of Hearts. This look is the most complex of all, perhaps, but I was able to take full advantage of the latest novelties by NYX sent me in the last package. I always loved the Queen from the first part of the game, so this is why she became my source of inspiration at this stage. In here, and in the whole look, I combine roses and tentacles, both in craft and in makeup. As for the craft: yes guys, I did all myself, don’t ask how. Tutorials with the process of creating a craft from the second and final stage I’ll post later on Patreon! The whole process of makeup (all three final looks), it took me 24 hours, but that’s not counting the filming. Tired, like any participant in this contest. The deadline is tough, but there are a lot of ideas in my head. According to the plot of my story, the Queen and her reign over Wonderland is the embodiment of darkness. Alice defeats the dark Queen, chopping off her head. I’ve got a huge amount of emotions from the atmosphere of the game and the coincidence of the final theme with my life story. It is tied to Alice, and more specifically to my art when it was just beginning. Fate or not, but I was glad to do such a difficult work. I am AliceYuric, see you next time!
