While visiting Edinburgh, Scotland I body painted my model friend, Laura J Draycon in a volcanic lava theme called, Magma.

Just messing around with some photos with sunglasses on. It actually looked pretty cool!
Thus... the title of this piece, "Cool as Lava". Photo by Pashur
My sketch for Magma. Originally I was going to call the piece,
"Pre-Cambria", hower "Magma" just seemed like it fit better.

Working away at the design.

"Gozer Reimagined" by Pashur
Fin!!!! I took this test shot to make sure I didn't miss anything before the actual posing begins. I wish this is what the new Gozer looked like in the new Ghostbusters film. The molten lava could be CGI'd to actually be dripping out of the black crust. Of course the line, "this chick is toast" would fit also because she is already, well... toasty.
"Lava Flow" by Pashur
So many people never get to see the back of my designs. I call this image
"Lava Flow" because the Lava-esque shapes looks like they are flowing down her back.
