This incredible artist paints on her body to transform herself into 2D comic superheroes

This is the incredible Kay Pike.​

Using only body paint and paint brushes, the ever so talented Kay can magically transform herself into any superhero or villain in the (comic) book.

That's right -- the image you're seeing above isn't a 2D image, it's an actual photo of the artist's finished project.

Don't believe us? Here's a video to prove it.

This is the Captain Planet Bodypaint I painted on Tuesday night! “We need a super hero for the Earth. Let's call him Captain Planet" No other cartoon I watched as a child has had as much impact on my day-to-day adult life. This show respected it's audience. It was a ridiculous cartoon, yes BUT it got a young persons mind thinking about more going on in the world, not just the TV in front of them. This show handles and delivered to kids way more mature topics then any got anywhere else. Disease, desolation of species, environmental impact, racism, cultural-ism, economic and political issues etc. We got SO much more out of this show then others presented to us. I like being engaged with the real world. and Captain Planet really is my hero. :) #captainplanet #planeteers #eco #ecofriendly #environment #green #planet #earth #superhero #power #retro #cartoon #90s @twitch #twitchcreative #artist #creative #art #paint #painting #bodyart #illusion #opticalillusion #facepaint #facepainting #mua #bodypaint #makeup @kryolanofficial #paradisemakeupaq #mehron #mehronmakeup @mehronmakeup @mehroncanada PS.

Tech Insider reports that the Canadian cosplayer has been a skilled painter since she was young, but she started cosplay body-painting (or "cospainting" as she calls it) in December.

Here she is as Harvey Dent/Two Face:

And Lady Deadpool!

If you want to see the artist in action, Pike live-streams her process twice per week on Twitch. More than 15,200 people viewed her latest livestream of She-Hulk!

Pike is not exclusive with body paint, however -- she does other cosplay as well, like this very convincing Jessica Rabbit:

We just have one question for you, Kay: Can you PLEASE help us with our Halloween costumes?

Check out Ronda Rousey's Sports Illustrated photoshoot, where she only wore body paint:
