      thank you…I never thought about tattoo-art before… a someone I know though recently tried on pig skin… I thought it was creepy, but some people tattoo leather and that could be interesting

              sounds inspiring … just remembered one friend of mine is allergic to henna, you should definitely test before you get a large tattoo . I don’t know if there have been recorded allergic reactions to bodypoint…

    This is magnificent, the colour, form and fluidity, it’s very impressive.

      Thank you …. I loved drawing this one… I think especially the flowers came out exactly as I wanted them.. the skin is a little bit brighter then I wanted it to be though…

        Its the shading and the form I find spectacular, the form is strong, the shade subtle, it’s super good. If I could be so rude as to offer a criticism, the power that is in her body she could do with a hint of that in her face, IMHO.

          hm could have done that but was too dynamic I wanted cute and no effort showing, indifference I guess one calls it, a bit of slightly warmed up asian beauty influenced western style… difficult idea, the powerful face would have been a lot easier to portray…

            Ok I see what you mean, like in a renascence work? I understand.

              Still thinking on renascence… asian beauty is usually called cool beauty because showing emotion on the face is rare… the emotion shown often appears very trained and reduced to what looks best… asian male and female often train hours before a mirror to get the best impression set to standard… It reduces by the new generation somewhat I think… but generally it is like hard to read… I think renascence tried to do removed from the world, I have to reread renascence

              its this expression of beauty, the eyes should be livelier to make it perfect but it is this idea of beauty

              Its ironic, in the classical age expression was seen as coarse, expressionless faces – divine. After the appearance of Japanese art in the west the ‘romantic’ style developed where passion was expressed. Interesting, I think most western girls – not sure about boys do a similar thing, but not so much to look calm but alluring.

              I get it, the divine moment was the aim… some believed to find it it prayer others in bed others at emotional hight or on drugs…it was the removed look the eyes at a distance, lips closed or open a few mm….
              ….
              western people speak of the asian beauty generally, but it is more or less 4 or 5 set expression if I recall it right… Geishas used to learn it as well as the upper class males…
              ….
              yes, alluring is a point asian beauty pose it always alluring, I’d say it borders on sexual invitation at least in the old times these expressions where excuses for men to be allowed to take…

              the idea is that the msucles of the face don’t move under no circumstance or motion, the face remains like set in stone, all life is in the eyes and the lips shouldn’t smile or if needed just barely

              All a little too constrained for me, I appreciate the aesthetic, and in art it’s lovely but the reality is that faces look good to me in various states, happy, sad and so on.

              I like emotional just fine in communication and I see that people forced to behave in this pattern often have outburst, alot of japanes folk has violency attacks and the big suicide number of course, korean folks are facing similar public expectations and they somehow manage to have emotional outbursts at minimum provocation but it is not the emotional reducing alone it is the perfect public face that is connected to pride and social standing….
              I like cool beauty though

              That’s a terrible thing, people are not machines, there is only so much we can bear.

              If they are guides more than laws I would agree.
