Painting on real people

Found this via the Lines & Colors blog. This is a real person in a room...


Pretty cool, huh?


This is part of an exhibit done by artist Alexa Meade. Be sure to see her Flickr photoset of this exhibit.

Here's a similar approach by a different artist, Peter Kun Fray. (found via the David's Really Interesting Pages blog- a good blog if you're into NPR rendering. And dinosaurs. Heh)... 


Kinda blows my mind, really- and it certainly opens the door to thinking more about what is possible in CG as a medium, too.

That top painting looked like it was a Lucien Freud (Sigmund's Grandson). That's pretty cool.

That's pretty amazing - took me a long time staring at it to believe it was real.

Just curious - what do you mean about the possibilities of CG as a medium? The different ways it could imitate other mediums of art? Just wondering, because I think about the future of CG art a lot too. It's pretty exciting to me.

Great art.
Pretty fantastic to be able to swoop into a painted skin. Makes you wander about the possibilities of walking around in a painted world.
