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.

Time doesn't leap, but flows into transience.
What's in the past is etched in memory, while the future is uncertain and faded.


This was inspired by this particular picture: [link]
When I first saw it, the first thing that popped in my head was that the skirt and the hair made it look like a pocket watch....

And so, this somehow was developed as a result.

I'm sorry that the colors are a bit...wonky from the scanner.
And my failed attempt at drawing metal.
I TRIED.

Here's the original: [link]
What happened to it was the paper got overworked, so when I added paint, her face peeled off. TT__TT
This is the third time I've redrawn this thing, with much better results, haha.

Oh! And I got a new brand of paints.
Much better than my old ones- these don't get gritty. C:

Yep.
Don't know what in the world to do with this thing.
I think I've been working on it since late June? Just didn't know what to do with the background so I set it aside.
She looks like she has severe jaundice.

As soon as I finally figure out what to do with the background, the moment I pull this out, I realize that I positioned it wrong, and I don't draw like this anymore.
Or rather, I just don't want to draw like this.
At the same time though, would this style be considered better than the one I've been using so far? I don't know.....
