At first glance, these stunning pictures of a model as Wonder Woman look like a Comic-Con costume but a closer look reveals she is completely naked and is covered in just body paint.
Model Shadia Elise stripped for renowned artist Paul Roustan from Los Angeles, who used her body as a canvass and transformed her into the warrior princess using just make-up and body paint.
The artist, who has excelled in body painting art and work with models for photo shoots and exhibitions, took about three hours to paint Shadia’s skin with colours.
Paul said: “I love Wonder Woman, and I love model Shadia Elise. So when she asked me to paint her as Wonder Woman, I had to oblige.
“It seems like every body painter I know already took their stab at a Wonder Woman body painting, so I made it a personal challenge to do it better than I had previously seen.
“I only had 3 hours to finish it, so I fell a little bit short around the legs and arms, and I didn’t have time to put in some highlights I originally wanted. But overall, I did a relatively accurate job on it, and I’m happy with the results.”
