It's been a while since I posted the Yakuza Bodypaint images - tonight I remembered that I had these indoor shots after seeing the artwork that Pin Up artist Nicole Brune is working on based on this look of mine.

These were the first shot we took after completing the bodypaint. The quality of these indoor photos are low due to not having a proper studio set up, hence we went outside (hiding me nekkidness as much as possible from the public eeep!) for the really nice location photos (see below).

But you can see the paint job and colors really well in these pics!

About the project: In October 2009 I was painted up by Master Body Painter Nick Wolfe! We've been friends for years but never had the chance to collaborate before this bodypaint. Nick suggested something Asian inspired and I blurted out "Yakuza tattoo!" and the idea for this theme was born!

Nick did the painting in 4 and a half hours, using Diamond FX paint. He looked up the kanjis for "Dragon Queen" and painted them as well.
For those who don't take the time to read my Profile info, yes I am the model in these images.
I did the face makeup and hair, inspired by traditional Japanese Geisha, and modernized. I also bought traditional Japanese hair pins, and the over kimono was made by me, originally for my XXXHolic cosplay. I love being able to re-use costume parts haha. The full gallery for this shoot is here on my website: [link]

Close up of the dragon, painted by Nick Wolfe. The kanji in the golden sphere is "dragon" of course.

After the destruction of the previous model and several delays, I am happy to unveil the Upsilon Mk-II steam-punk gas mask helmet. Everything that isn't clay is made of recycled material (just in case you're a go-green person).

An ornament i made to hang from the rear view mirror of a car. As you can see its a flying pig with a steam punk flavour. i made a basic wire armature, then used milliput to build up it form. The goggles are scaled down port holes, and the wings are made of plasticard. It took about 3 days to make mainly because of the long curing time of milliput. The rivets are also milliput, iv no idea how many i rolled and placed on there, quite alot tho im sure. Its painted with acrylic paints and finished off with a very hard coating gloss varnish.

I created this box to open a small window into another dimension, I was experimenting with locating new dimensions never transversed by any known being. Worlds farther away from mine in the multi-verse. This resulted in finding a dimension where its inhabitants were not satisfied with staying where they originate from. This creature in particular wanted to come into this world and spread it’s madness. I could not let it become free in this reality so I was able to stop it in time, literally.

“Gear Girl: Pink” features a sexy steampunk outfit, bright dreadlocks, cool goggles and fun accessories. I’m trying my hand at more classic pin-up poses with this one and its sister painting, “Gear Girl: Blue.” I hadn’t worked on canvas for awhile, so these two have a traditional canvas texture. For Gallery 1988 San Francisco show "Beasts from the Bay" July-Aug. 09

A tribal of a wolf wearing the Otami Headdress, an item on GaiaOnline.com.
I love the items on that sight xD. Some of them are just amazing.
By the way, on GaiaOnline, I am [-Myra Ryuukage-]. And I have an art shop :3. For you Gaia people out there, anyway.
