Unbelievable Character Face Painting

I’ve been seeing more awesome face painting art across the internet recently. I have to say that this one really stands out. Artist Elsa Rhae is incredibly talented. Her face painting is detailed and gorgeous. The video game characters really come to life through her face and body painting work. She’s also done characters from movies, TV, comics and more. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but here’s a few I really love.

Check out this mind blowing painting she did featuring Venom. I love how his mouth stretches down her neck and looks different depending on the angle you’re looking. It makes it look so cool and just like he would look in real life!


Here’s the video of the amazing Venom face paint:

This White Walker from Game of Thrones is so impressive. Just look at that bone structure she painted.


Elsa’s youtube videos are awesome. It’s amazing to see the process and have all the little details come together for one epic character. Make sure to watch, subscribe to her channel and check out the gallery on her facebook page for more!
