London: Hollywood`s funnyman Jim Carrey gave a glimpse of his painting skills to his fans, which he hopes to "reveal" soon.

The 49-year-old actor, who had developed a passion for the art, spoke of painting himself in character to help his acting process.

The `Bruce Almighty` star, who created series of art in his New York studio showed off two of his most recent masterpieces during a TV appearance, reported Daily Star online.

"I`m in heaven, truly in the womb, when I`m doing it. It`s physically taxing and a really, really intense process. "Every character I do on the painting, I`ll put a different type of music on; sometimes I`ll rave out," said Carrey.

The Canadian born star showed a photo of a black light painting, in which he posed with Ultra Violet make-up all over his face.

When asked if he was worried about what art critics would comment on his creations, he said, "I`m not worried about critics after (panned film) Ace Ventura."
