This Silver Surfer Body Paint Looks Like A Comic Book [Cosplay]

This picture of the Silver Surfer looks like it came out of the pages of a comic book, but it’s actually body paint by Cris Alex. The talented makeup effects artist wanted to re-create the cover of Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #20 by Ron Lim, and she used body paint for the project. I’m going to say she succeeded in her effort. I can’t believe this isn’t a flat illustration. My mind is blown.

Alex used “PPI Skin Illustrator and board and rock created with foam core and acrylic paints” for the effort. She shot the photos with a strong light in order to make the body paint appear flatter and more comic book-y (that’s totally a word).

Be amazed by the entire look after the break.
