My lovely octopus |Bodypainting

in MakeUp Power5 months ago

I had a lot of fun doing this bodypainting. I missed feeling the brushes touching my skin and I know that doing face art is like therapy for me.

I thought about one of my favourite animals :the octopus. Maybe it sounds odd to you that one day I dream about having a big tank with a mini octopus in it, surrounded by fishes and other sea creatures. I am in love with the sea life and anything connected to it.

I wanted a more artistic represention of this beautiful creature and I enjoyed having fun with colours. It took me around 4 hours to finish it and boy did this swim in the shower after taking it off haha.

I tried different backgrounds and I think that my style of bodypainting looks good on black background, it makes the colours pop.

Thank you very much!

You're most welcome!
That's one of the most amazing sights I've seen.... Doubly cool that you love sea life too! :)

Yup, I am a fan. I dream about seeing bioluminescent plancton, you know, it is a wonderful spectacle of light. If you mention sea life you get me started and I don't stop hahhaa. Thanks for your kind words!

Ooohhhh, I have seen the bioluminescence along the shoreline ~ utterly beautiful... magical!

I can imagine, in the videos it looks awesome so the reality must be 10x better

Yesssss! Very I-can't-believe-my-eyes-pinch-me... kinda thing! :)

This reminds me of that time the mushrooms were laced with LSD, but by the time I found out, it was too late.

Looking at art can make you feel trippy haha, if the art is good, you feel good. Minus the side effects of the magic mushrooms hihi

Wow! This looks so amazing! I especially like the pics with both halfs of your face on it. The contrast between the blue and the purple is amazing and it kind of looks like you have your right eye open, even though it isn't so.

Octopuses are awesome creatures indeed, so I totally get it. I hope you can have one as a pet some day but then, if possible, in a huge aquarium. Perhaps, your crypto art will get you one. Let's keep dreaming big!

Big hug from Portugal,

Vincent

Thank you so much Vincent! I love bold colours when it comes to bodypainting, as vivid as I can get them, the better.
A huge aquarium.... Oh I dream about this for a long time. I would love to have one aquarium built into the wall, lovely illuminated, so when I would come home at night, I could just sit, with the lights off, and watch all of my little marine pets swim.
I must persevere with art. Selling the original drawing proved to be difficult. I think that I will slowly add nft and build an online presence with this. I will not give up.
You are always so good with encouraging me to dream, I always liked this about you Vincent🤗

That aquarium vision of you sounds like heaven and very ZEN. Keep dreaming it will manifest itself, one day. The same goes for your art success. It's only a matter of time, you are very skilled and your work is unique, powerful and beautiful.

You will make it some day, sooner rather than later.

Big hug!✨

Oh you have no idea how much it means to me to hear this from you, making a living from art is a challenge. I am a dreamer by nature and many find it childish and imature. But look at you, you get it and encourage it. That is so nice and I thank you. You've been a lovely person since the first day I have been here. Thank you Vincent, I will not stop dreaming. And neither should you. 🤗🌟🌟

Thank you and don't worry, I won't stop dreaming and I will make my dreams reality ;<)
