This is NOT a Photo Manipulation! She is really blue! It’s called body paint and it takes HOURS!
The body painting took probably around 5 hours!
Outfit was done by me and Shayla, I provided the jewelry. Post processing by me. Shayla gets credit for finding all the people who helped make this possible!
Something important to me, is to always try and maintain realism with my photos, that’s why the paint is real, the model is real, the setting is real. The only element here that’s obviously been changed is the eye color.
I realize not everyone likes Avatar and you could even say the Avatar “craze” has put people off of liking the movie. But I have something to say and that is, I believe any true artist should be able to at least appreciate the visual beauty that this movie has shown us.
