THE PROCESS : Helen Beasley

The photographer Thom Kerr sent me a reference : the artwork of japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama and told me he wanted to create a body art in the style. We discussed his favourite elements of the design, and from which angle we would shoot the talent in order to emphasise the illusion. I created a luminous skin texture with Mehron metallics powder (silver) and Paradise bodypaints before painting in the robot bodysuit elements and edge highlights with Wolfe to look like the surface metal is showing blue sky reflections and giving it a slick glossy look. The piece took four hours to create.
