Pale skin is often considered a desirable trait in Eastern countries, but artist Emma Uber takes people’s affinity for the fair to uncharted territories in her paintings. Rather than rendering subjects with lighter epidermis, she actually depicts women with haunting blue hues, giving them an otherworldly allure that will unnerve some and inspire others. Though she’ll change the models and moods of her compositions, the azure skin of her subjects remains ever-present in most of her paintings, making this a signature trait that will help others easily identify Uber’s work.

Aside from using blue pigments, Emma Uber is also notable for her realistic approach to fantasy scenes. Browsing her Tumblr, viewers can see a steady progression towards photorealism that’s offset by the prismatic color palettes of her images.
