Hero and Villain Body Paint (Video)
I’m sure by now most of you have seen the viral video and pictures of the female artist who has re-created amazing hero and villain art through body paint. If you haven’t then you’re in luck because we have posted a video of her work below. Her unique, one of a kind body paints look like they are straight from the pages of a comic book or manga. She has painted on some of the most iconic heroes and villains all using herself as the canvas.
Artist Kay Pike is the genius behind these recent works of art and she does them all free hand and on herself. She doesn’t use stencils or even air brushing. All she uses is reference pictures of the character she is painting and simple paints and brushes. Her ability to capture the comic book style art in body painting is absolutely amazing. Apparently Kay use to be into more traditional cosplay until she started suffering from arthritic “health issues” which in my opinion helped her find her true calling.
I’ve seen her videos on Facebook but I really wanted to find a high definition video to show you guys. The video posted below is actually from the ViralTrix YouTube channel but shows a better mix of her work in a single video. Some of my favorite paintings from Kay are Spider-Man (of course), Colossus, Star Fire, and Golden Freeza. For more Nerdgasmic body painting check Kay Pike’s YouTube page by clicking here.
