Flower Skull

Rachel Salavon from Dallas, TX, sent us this creation.

I love that it's a skull on a skull. It's a very creative use of "canvas". The flowers remind me of Noah's Flower Skull 2. I like the two colors of red that were used to make the petals of these stylized flowers. The placement of the flowers is very organic. Overall, it's a really neat piece. Body paint (of in this case, skull paint) always intrigues me. Since the work is done on a person, you have to be consensus of the 3D form, how the skin shifts and the position the person will be when you are done. The only work I've ever done in the realm of body paint, is full face paint. I know that takes a long time to do, so I imagine this would too.
