Surprise! This Chameleon Is Actually Two Painted Women

Stötter, shows us just how creative the process can be, and how women can be transformed into realistic looking creatures with a bit of body paint.  Okay, so maybe a lot of body paint, effort, and patience, but you get the idea. This is a great representation on how easily the human mind can be tricked into thinking its looking at something that it’s not.  To anyone that didn’t know they would think they’re staring at a beautiful photo of a chameleon and be in awe of the photographer.  But, the awe should be put on the painter instead, because he was able to paint these women realistically (as well as position them) to create the illusion of a creature. Around four hours was spent designing piece, and over six hours was spent painting and prepping the two sisters to get them into position.  Just the time alone would deter a lot of painters from giving this a try, but it worked out so well that it’s more than worth it. Doing the same work with the image of a frog as well (completed with five models), this is by far a talented a painter.  It’s even more impressive when you discover he is self-taught.  How incredible does that whole thing sound? If you are at all interested in art, you can take a look at the photos and fee some aww in how  Stötter uses his talent to create the convincing illusion/mind trick of what is really going on, or if you are not so into art, you can try and figure out where the women start and end! johannesstoetterart.com | Facebook (h/t: mymodernmet, demilked)
