Seit Urzeiten ist die Bemalung des Körpers Teil der menschlichen Kultur. Modernes Bodypainting findet heute vor allem bei Veranstaltungen, als Kunstform sowie zur Effektgestaltung in Theater, Film und Fernsehen statt. Die Airbrushtechnik gehört dabei zu den jüngsten Werkzeugen der Körperkünstler und findet aufgrund ihres gleichmäßigen, schnellen und dünnen Farbauftrags immer mehr Nutzer. Darüber hinaus bietet Airbrush z.B. durch das Arbeiten mit Schablonen und Maskierungen sowie die Gestaltung von weichen Farbübergängen und Schattierungen einzigartige Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten. Das vorliegende Buch bietet Schritt für Schritt einen Einstieg in die Airbrushtechnik für Bodypainting und führt in die Anwendungsgebiete Tattoos, Make up, Tanning sowie Ganzkörper-Bodypainting ein. Neben einem kompakten Überblick über die benötigten Materialien wie Airbrushgeräte, Kompressoren und spezielle Körper-Farben leiten Grundübungen zur richtigen Handhabung des Gerätes sowie zum Erlernen verschiedener Airbrush-Techniken an. Ausführliche Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitungen zeigen praxisnah die Entstehung beliebter Bodypainting-Motive wie Leoparden-Look, die Imitation eines Badeanzugs und einer Corsage sowie die Verwandlung des Modells in einen Roboter oder Alien. Eine Künstlergalerie gibt außerdem kreative Impulse für eigene Kreationen und hilfreiche Links weisen den Weg zu weiteren Informationsquellen.

What is true feminine beauty? As the artist I fancy myself to be, I feel that I know it when I see it. Many women are blessed with natural beauty which has two components as far as I’m concerned: 1.) The face. 2.) The body. In the face, some women have striking looks but if they don’t have beautiful souls it reverberates there. Your resting expression indicates the type of person you are. Over time, this expression becomes your permanent face which is why I can tell who looks happy in a relaxed way versus the girls with anger, sadness or a beef with the world written on their faces. They have scowls on them. Look at yourself in the mirror with no expression on your face. You can see how other people see you. See more at tonykel.com

"The New Gold Standard in Automotive Step-By-Step Books Automotive Cheap Tricks & Special F/X II, the ultimate book of automotive custom painting has been released. Automotive Cheap Tricks & Special F/X II is a compilation of step-by-step instruction by Craig Fraser, one of the greatest forces behind the popularization of automotive custom painting. In fact, Special F/X II far exceeds its predecessor, F/X I, in superior design, nearly double the content (31 chapters, including 11 introductory sub-chapters and a comprehensive glossary), and size (212 pages). The subtitle, Learn How to Paint Cars, Trucks, Motorcycles, Musical Instruments, Surfboards, and R.C. Cars, really says it all, and lives up to its promise with some of the most cutting-edge work dissected for your reference and execution. This amazing visual smorgasbord tutors on how to achieve stunning graphics, special effects, murals, pinstriping, and more for beginners and pros. It’s especially fascinating how perceptually difficult effects (bullet holes, fire, water droplets, old school flames, and tons more) and textures (alligator and dragon skin, chrome, cheetah fur, faux f/x, and many others) are so easily rendered with stencils, freehand shields, a variety of tapes, vinyl, and even a torch! It almost seems as if the author gave away too much, like a magician who would surprisingly reveal his secrets with impunity. Fraser was thoughtful enough to include enough editorial and instruction for newbies that includes a Back to Da’ Basics chapter, and some great articles on self-promotion, the zen of custom painting, how to photograph your artwork (the importance of this cannot be overstated), the paint and equipment you’ll need to get started, and the business of custom painting. In great, painstaking detail throughout, the book also addresses critically essential information on the proper sequences and steps to working with urethanes and clearcoats, among other things. The fact that improper methods can lead to catastrophic results on, say, a $100,000 vehicle makes this book even more important. Chapters include: Flamin’ Out A Killer Skull (skull and flames on a motorcycle tank), Steampunk Guitar (mind-blowing; gorgeous), Formula Drift (classic graphics with stunning results), Dragon Drums, Da Kine Surf-Tiki (Craig proves that you, too, can paint a bitchin’ surfboard), Rice Fink (sure to be a big favorite), RC Car (you better read this before you attempt one), Donkey Frog, and Homage A Giger (H.R., that is). Automotive Cheap Tricks & Special F/X II is beautifully printed in full color and on heavy paper stock, and it’s obvious that the publisher spared no expense in producing it. At $34.95 this volume is a steal. And it is, without question, the new gold standard for books on automotive custom painting and will remain so for years to come."

From the people who've been delivering trustworthy guidebooks to every destination in the world for 40 years, Lonely Planet's 50 Festivals To Blow Your Mind will make your next trip an unforgettable one. There's something about festivals. Whether it's a giant, joyous party or a respectful honouring of tradition, a seemingly bizarre adherence to ritual or a celebration of a quirky obsession - a festival is a uniquely human thing to be involved in. We get together to dance, sing, eat, laugh, drink, dress up, light fires, take our clothes off, throw tomatoes at each other, roll around in mud - just about anything really, but we seem to like doing it in really large groups with bags and bags of enthusiasm. Festivals are life-affirming and take our desire to have a good time with friends and family to a global level. They continue to thrive because they ignite curiosity and help to promote understanding, compassion and a greater acceptance of other races, cultures and traditions.
