Kay Pike is Canadian artist and Lianne Moseley was an inspiration to her in 2015. She paints whole body. Yes, this is crazy right. Why is this really a need? The answer is ‘maybe’. Because instead of preparing custom, this takes time in 16 hours approximately.
Kay Pike has mentioned “I have always loved dress up. I found cosplay was a great way to interact and enjoy socializing at conventions. I started painting myself in early December 2015 with my Attack On Titan face paint (the character with a skinless body). It went viral and I got invited to stream painting live online. I have been doing a paint twice a week ever since.”
One of the interview, she has been asked that what was the her inspiration and here is the answer “My inspiration mostly comes from seeing something beautiful. It can be a great costume design, it can be a trailer for an upcoming movie with a new take on a character, it can be a great fan-art someone has done with amazing lighting. I love when people suggest characters to me that they think look great too.”
At the beginning of this news, we mentioned time of this process and she said that “When I am asked how long the painting takes my truthful answer is as long as I want, truthfully. I found painting Titan it only took three hours, however If I’m trying to have fun and socialize, I plan to paint the whole day.”
Kay Pike talked that “I start as soon as I wake up in the morning to get social media ready and finish up planning any optical illusions. I’ll spend about half an hour putting on the latex and then two hours drawing initial line work. As soon as I’m decent I’ll start streaming and continue more or less unbroken until it’s finished. Then about an hour and a half for photo shoot and another hour and a half for clean-up.”
