Everyone who is true bodypainter and fans of such, shows, etc. are allowed to post into this group. I have left the membership open for the time being so we can get more members.It is my hope that people will start posting more of their work as well. Remember if it does show obvious nudity, please put it behind an LJ-cut, by obvious i mean by the naughty areas showing and uncovered by paint. There are plenty of finger painting type things out there. If someone posts something derogatory that is blatantly disrespectful, please alert one of the maintainers of the group.
I posted a photo last night to this group only to be assaulted by some trolls with the loverly comment of "puke puke ... ect for 2 pages" i deleted the post, and would love to post again, but dont want to have to deal with such childish behaviour.. any thoughts?
This journal community is for people to network and talk about bodypainting, so post your stuff about what you do, any shows you know about, etc. etc. -Bryan

Well last night, I created a simple logo for the World Bodypainting Community
This is what I came up with. What do you think?
Feel free to use the logo to link to the community as well:
Well we have a few members now and I encourage the artists and models to post their work and about themselves. If it has obvious nudity, please post it behind an lj-cut, you can use thumbnails that are censored as well. I will post a few pics to get things started as well.-Bryan
I recently found out about a festival and contest in New Mexico, USA, so those of you in the states might want to check it out and see if you are interested in attending. The US Competition is from September 22 to the 24th in 2006 this year. It will be in Albuquerque, NMhttp://www.newmexicobodypaintingfestival.com/
Every year there is held a grand event in Austria. It is called the World Bodypainting Festival. It is put on by the World Body Painting Association, of which I am a proud member. you should check out the site to see more about the contest, festival and organization. http://www.bodypainting-festival.com
I want to welcome everyone to the new group journal. Whether you are a visitor, member, fan, or combination of all of them..http://www.livejournal.com/community/world_bodypaint/ I hope will be a good place for everyone in this creative field to network and talk about the work they do and other things that have seen. If you post others work, make sure you have their permission and give due credit and link to their work if they have a website or portfolio online. I will be posting rules soon enough on image size and what all we hope to achieve with this venture.sincerely,Bryanhttp://www.bryancrump.com
