The Most Elaborate Face Painting In The World

These face paintings by New Zealand artist Christy Lewis take face painting to the next level. “When somebody asks for an animal or creature, I love painting something so extreme that when they look in the mirror they no longer see their own face, but that animal staring back at them,” Lewis said.

1. The only way you know it’s not a real bulldog is because of the lips.

2. The only way you know it’s not a real peacock is because of the ring.

3. The only way you know it’s not a real koala is because of the sweatshirt.

4. The only way you know it’s not a real owl is because of the forehead.

5. The only way you know it’s not a real hippo is because of the polka dots.

6. The only way you know it’s not real pandas is because of the necks.

7. The only way you know it’s not a real ostrich is because of the ears.

8. The only way you know it’s not a real cheetah is because of the pink stripes.

9. The only way you know it’s not a real tiger is because of the hair.

10. The only way you know it’s not a real dinosaur is because of the shirt.

11. The only way you know it’s not the real Hulk is because even for being a ferocious mutant, this is the most adorable Hulk in all the land.
