Toby Michael Fx
My name is Toby Derrig and I am a Professional Special Effects Makeup Artist. I also happen to be colorblind, and no, it's not in just black and white.
I have professional training through the QC Makeup Academy. I also studied and gained lots of artistic experience and knowledge during my time in highschool. As far as my makeup skills I am self-taught, though I do look at images and art to get inspired, I see it, I learn it, I do it. My long term goal is to hopefully become a social media personality, so to share my creations with as many as possible.
One of my favorite looks to create is sugar skulls. It is one of the first looks I created when I decided to become a makeup artist, and I admire all the detail that can be added. I also enjoy doing horror looks with lots of gore and blood, even if they are really messy! Now and again you may see some Disney inspired looks, due to my obsession growing up, that has lasted well into my adulthood.
My Goal with makeup is to both inspire, surprise, and confuse people with my crazy visions. I am always trying to come up with a new way to reinvent different things and use some materials that aren't in typical makeups. My biggest goal is to not let the fact that I am Colorblind, stop me from achieving great things and becoming everyone's "best worst nightmare".
