16 Year Old Aussie Is A Special Effects Make-Up Wizard

This is Lara. She's 16, self-taught and very talented. Lara has really started to hit her stride and her work continues to get better and better.

She's even just been featured on Japanese site IT Media, so she's certainly on her way up.

    16 years old?

    I had trouble combing my own hair when I was 16 (I still have issues tbh)

    Brilliant work, you go girl!

    Wouldn't this fall under practical effects?

      It's awesome. STFU.

    That's amazing work. That #bloodandblank entry makes Dr Who's The Silence look lazy.

      Absolutely agreed! She's got some serious talent! I used to do a bit of stuff like that when I was her age, and wanted to do it for a job, but never quite had the resources. My stuff was mostly gore based though. Partly what got me in to 3d art though. Was able to do the stuff I wanted but never could due to lack of resources!

        I hear ya. So much stuff is like to do creatively in my spare time if it wasn't for lack of money/resources. I've seen there is an Ink Master style show for costume artists, I reckon she would wipe the floor with what I'm seeing here.
