Canvases Are For Chumps

Today I happened upon two awesome artists with one common link--- They paint people.  And they do it amazingly well.

First up is Alexa Meade, who does "hyper-realistic acrylic body painting".   The best way I can think to describe it is that she makes real life people look like they stepped out of a painting.  I have studied these pictures, and I know they are real and I know how she did it, but my mind still can't comprehend.   How amazing is this?

The next artist is Liu Bolin, also known as The Invisible Man.   He paints himself to blend in with his surroundings.  No camera tricks or photoshop, just one guy who is way too good at what he does.
