Are these faces 2D or 3D?

A series of paintings dubbed “2D or Not 2D” by Valeriya Kutsan and photographed by Alexander Khokhlov has recently made it’s debut to the web for it’s creative use of makeup to make the 3D image of the model’s face to appear 2D.

The project explains:

“Valeriya used different techniques of face painting so you can see a lot of variations – from sketch and graphic arts to water-colour and oil-paintings. This is a combination of interesting make-ups, studio photography experiments and careful retouching.”
