A friend commissioned me to do a bodypaint as a gift for a fine young soldier on deployment in Iraq. So.... a very silly day in the studio (she spent a LOT of time making the characters talk). After the primary photo shoot, I grabbed a camera to try to get a proper Art Nude. 

Bodypaint: European Body Art and WolfeFX. I experimented with a few techniques including sponging and ended up with waaaay too much paint that led to cracking - which actually helped mimic the felt fabric of the puppets.

Your work is always so clean,  you even use the cracking effect to good ... effect   XD     I haven't been able to spend much time here at DA for awhile, but seeing your posts always makes it time well spent.  Glad you're still putting out great work!
