Pinkstylist Creature Double Feature Contest - Star Wars/The Exorcist

Hey everyone! Today's video is a character I created for Pinkstylist's Creature Double Feature contest! The idea behind this contest is to take two characters from any sci-fi or horror movie before 1980 and create your own character taking inspiration from both looks. I decided to enter this contest on a whim and it's almost the deadline so hopefully I still get this in on time! Anyways the character I created was inspired by an alien I saw in the Cantina scene in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope 1977 (picture below) and I was also inspired by Regan from The Exorcist 1973. I took a little inspiration from both characters and came up with this devil/demon character. I added the Jedi robe for fun haha. The cuts I created were definitely inspired by Regan and also the cracking of the lips. The rest was really based off the Star Wars character. His skin was completely red and had furrowed brows along with some contouring. I realize that my brows could've been covered better but I was messing with them so much that I ended up smudging the crap out of them :( I edited them in the pictures so that it wouldn't be so distracting haha. But anyways I had a lot of fun creating this character and I hope you enjoyed! If you haven't checked out Pinkstylist yet you are missing out on a lot of fun videos! Thank you for watching and I will see you in the next one!
