Fathom Cospaint by kohse
Fathom Cospaint
THIS IS NOT A DIGITALLY PAINTED COSTUME.  It's a long process of gluing prosthetic pieces to the model and then body painting the costume on her that took 4 artists 12 hours to apply.  Then a photographer takes photos of the model which I clean up and add lighting and background elements based on the comics, using Photoshop.

This is one of the pieces I am creating for the Cospaint Series II cosplay trading card set by Webble.  The set is 81 cards and features some amazing cosplayers as their favorite Aspen Comics characters. This piece is one of the chase cards and is available as a print through the Kickstarter  Check out our Kickstarter here!  Please support us! 

This piece features LeeAnna Vamp as Aspen Mathews from the comic book Fathom.  Body painting for this project was done by Lisa Berczel, Donna Hofstee, Brittney Ponder, and myself.  Photography by Cosmic Frog

I painted this image using Photoshop CC (14) on a Wacom Cintiq.  You can  see a video of me painting this here. About 5 hours of digital work, 12 hours of body painting and photography.
