I came across this link for the World Bodypainting Festival, and wow! I’ve seen body paint done before. Anyone who’s seen X-men knows that artists can do amazing things with paint and the human body. Still, many of these surprised me. Looking at these pictures, I thought how useful they could be for sci-fi writers to use some of these images as inspiration.
I admire and even envy the artists who came up with these designs. I’ve always wished I could be more of a visual artist and do a better job with describing things, drawing, etc. I took art classes in high school, and most of my stuff looked like it came out of elementary school. I have friends who draw, and their hands look so fluid and graceful when they sketch. These just aren’t things that come naturally to me.
That’s why I collect images and links to all sorts of interesting things. I know that if I ever need inspiration, there will be artists out there who’ve had the vision I lack.
