Colors of Fantasy | Digital Bodypainting Illusions

Colors of Fantasy is a calendar project on which I worked last year.

This project was a collaboration with airbrush artist J. Steiner, Photographer Jens Schmidt and various models.

My task was to come up with a more retouched / manipulated version of the images, to take them into a new stage and something that is not possible with bodypainting alone. It was a big challenge and fun.

If you want to see the uncensored version of the images below, you should go to my behance page here.

From 12 calendar images, these were only 9 that I did and only 7 were used in the final calendar.
If you have a similar project, where a professional, flexible high-end retoucher is needed, don´t hesitate to contact me for a non-committal quote.
