There's more to this Silver Surfer tribute than meets the eye

As difficult as it may be to believe, this tribute to Ron Lim's cover for Silver Surfer #20 isn't an illustration. It's a photograph of a model wearing body paint, applied by makeup artist Cris Alex and shot using strong light to make it appear flat. It's only upon closer inspection, when you can make out details like eyelashes, whiskers and nails that it becomes clear the Herald of Galactus is an actual person.

Alex, who's resume includes movies, television shows and music videos, also provides behind-the-scenes photos, where the shadows and contours are apparent, and the glaring model is a little alarming.
