Body Art that Tricks the Eye

The work of Hollywood makeup artist Cris Alex can be seen in X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Here, Alex flawlessly recreates the cover of Silver Surfer Vol. 3 #20, to the point that the makeup, in combination with special lighting, becomes flat-out optical illusion. 

See more photos of the Silver Surfer body paint as well as behind the scenes photos of the shoot with Cris Alex at the artist's website.

The behind the scenes page is the one that proves they are photos. :)
Also, in the photos above, you can kind of tell by the toes, too, I think.
Mhm, nice body.

So you're trying to tell us these are photographs? Okay. I went to the link, and they still look like illustrations to me, except there's one closeup where you can see the guy's eyelashes. The "behind the scenes" page seems to be borked. Honestly, I'd like to see the guy's body without paint...
