Body painting to create another world – Photoshop Composite art from Reality Reimagined

One of the greatest creative strengths of body painting is that you can truly create characters from another world, with the simplest of tools and techniques.

Returning to some of the work from the Shutterfest photography conference this year, this image features the second character that was painted by the brilliant Otto Ott. He not only painted the design, he created the fantastic wings that she is using. They have such a great level of detail in the design and they (of course) are brilliantly painted to add such a unique look to the character.

This was the first time that I got to work with Sam and I truly had a blast! She has a fantastic smile and it came out each time I told her to channel that dark, sexy, fearsome inner beast inside. We hit a lot of great looks and she quickly stepped into a dramatic role as we photographed, filling our time with some great images that I will visit soon!
Thank you to Nicole for her fantastic work and creativity and to Carrie for organizing this event at Shutterfest.
