me after the seattle world naked bike ride!
hey folks -- i am but a fledgeling artist trying to spread my cyber-wings. up until now i've been quietly perusing all your work from my dark, cold corner in wisconsin and its about damn time i put myself out there as well! my stuff may not all fit into 'body painting' so well categorically speaking, i'm more multimedia... basically i work with anything i can find in mass quanity from thrift stores or the clearance rack of the local dollar store hehe. ANYway, i'd appreciate any sort of commentary on my work [be brutal] i can take it :D this is my latest piece. hopefully its the first in a series - my objective is to show (more than a little blatantly) some of the stereotypes ascribed to alternative communities, and those we shoose to slap on ourselves. to see the rest of my artstuffs, please feel free to visit my wee virtual-hovel: [ -bj ]
I was wondering if any skilled body painters out there had any tips on how to paint realistic clothes? Like how do I go about creating the texture and shadows of clothing items like shirts or underwear? What's the best kind of paint to cover large areas on the body (liquid, cremes, cake? brands?) and should I just sponge the base colors or are there other techniques to fully cover a lot of skin at once? I'd be forever grateful for any advice or tutorials or pictures you can offer! I'm a paint brush artist, not an airbrusher by the way.Also, this will be my first time painting a fully nude male model, and if anyone has any tips.. how to handle that? ;) Any advice or details on how exactly to go about painting male genitalia? Not just the professional etiquette, but also the technical logistics of how to paint everything!Thanks so much! :)
This was from a bodypainting shoot with my friend and poet Maria Alexander.We did this one a few years ago in Hollywood, California, woohoo. Maria is quite the author, so here you see her painted up as a sort of vampire floral vixen of sorts. I dunno, what do you think?( Click here to see Maria all crazy coolCollapse )In any case, I hope you like it. I did touch it up briefly with some of my new skills. if you are not familiar with Maria's fascinating works her website is http://www.thehandlesspoet.com/You can see more of my work at http://www.bryancrump.comsome prints of my work are also available at http://www.printroom.com/pro/bryancrumpI can also be reached at myspace here: http://www.myspace.com/neoquark

I am so in love with all the art work I have seen and am seeing in Body paint. I have always wanted to have something like this done and am hoping to do a costume for Labyrinth of Jareth Fantasy Masquerade in July (Los Angeles)... I'm sure it's exspenisve but if anyone out there is in LA and maybe interested in a deal + payment, please contact me.
I have a few pictures I can share of friends but thet're not upload to a disc or online. For now I'll just admire and drool.
