Red Queen of Hearts (Rough Draft)

     Ok, so as finals week approaches, I'm becoming more and more stressed about my final project for class! The assignment is to pick a character from a play, movie, or book and come up with our own makeup design for the character. This is what I have so far:

     If you can't tell, sorry the lighting was really bad, I drew my inspiration for the hair from Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland", then I'm also planning on planting a streak of red crepe hair through the middle of the hairstyle. A big problem I have is, I'm horrible at drawing. I feel like it doesn't look exactly like I want it to, but the more I try to redo it, the worse it gets. So, since I'm also the model, as well as the artist for this design, I'll have to see how it turns out on the actual canvas. I'm quite nervous about the hair. I have very fine/thin blonde hair, and this hairstyle is going to take a TON of backcombing. My instructor did inform us that we could do our hair before the final, but I've got another final that morning, and then work so I don't know how I would manage that. Do you think I could get in done within the hour break I have between work and this final?
     I'm also blocking out my eyebrows, which I have done on myself before...I hope it turns out well. I'll be sure to post a picture of the finish project when I'm done with it next week. Maybe I'll find time to practice it this weekend. Cross your fingers!
