Way back in 2015, we highlighted the incredible work of Alexys “Lex” Fleming, a local bodypainter that has provided some of the coolest works of art over the past few years. One of our favorites was her rendition of Venom, the classic Spider-Man villain/anti-hero that’s getting his own movie. With the first teaser trailer released just a few weeks ago, Lex decided to take another stab at the character and created one of her greatest works yet. Take a look below and make sure to follow her on Twitch, Twitter, Facbeook, and be sure to subscribe to her channel on YouTube!

When I started my stream yesterday, I had said I wasn’t sure I would be able to do Venom any better than I had back in 2014. When I was done with the stream, I was very happy with the look, but didn’t REALIZE HOW MUCH I had improved until I put 2014 next to 2018. Of course, 2012…………. lets just compare 2014 to 2018. Practice goes a long way. I haven’t even TRIED this look again since ‘14. It’s all from teaching myself new techniques with other characters all these years. Thanks for watching me grow 🙂 and I love watching you all grow as artists as well.
