I know that I mentioned in my Wicked Faire post that I was hired last minute to do a full body painting on a cat for a fashion show that was schedule to occur at the Faire. The request was not to make her look like a cat, but to take my cues from the mask she'd be wearing with her ears and tail. I had just over an hour to complete the look, from shoulders to shoes. I did it!
The model, Nicole, was great to work with, and apparently was also great at the show, which I unfortunately had to miss.
Then again, she's a dancer, so how could she not be great? Those boots are painted on, by the way. Nicole had on t-strap shoes, but we wanted her to look like she was wearing boots, so I painted them right up her legs.
I did my best to mimic the swirls and curls of the mask, as well as the crosshatch pattern and fading that were involved in it.
