Yesterday was *Doomsday-Dawn's Master Photography Workshop: Water.

There was one spot left in this class - and that person really missed out....

~Madame-Siam proved once again what an incredible talent she is. A full body paint wasn't enough. She started playing with some shell props we'd brought along and one thing led to another and a shell 'n net ensemble was Couture de Jour.

Hours in the water and a slip'n slide Greek column made for a true endurance test.

I'm VERY much looking forward to getting some student images.... there's a tail to be told ;)

Makeup:

Yaby Pearl Paint eye shadow.

Thank you... it was important to integrate green over the entire body so she didn't look like she was cut in half.

Yeah I could see that looking comming through as strange but I think you pulled it off. The lighting and everything looks really nice.

That makeup on the lower part of her body really really looks convincing... at first I thought maybe it was prosthetic based. Damn, you're good! :D

I'm thinking, that's what a mermaid would like in real life, that is indeed the kind of marine life that would drive a sailor crazy with lust... mission accomplished.

This is indeed a case of the model making or breaking the project.
With a different model, we would have had a completely different "personality" for our Siren.

The success of the image has a lot more to do with *Doomsday-Dawn's set building and lighting than the body paint, but thank you!

Nah, I'd say it looks more like a success due to the Sum of Many doing great work to make a perfect shot happen! :) (insert bad "yea team!" pun here)

one of the most realistic scale execution Ive ever seen in body paint!

Thank you.
Depth and texture were important - otherwise the scales would have just been a slap-a-stencil in the end.
