Krishna is usually shown with blue skin. He is often shown wearing a yellow silk dhoti and peacock feather crown.
Krishna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is an historical person who appeared on this earth in India 5,000 years ago. He stayed on this earth for 125 years and played exactly like a human being, but His activities were unparalleled.
Vishnu is easily recognized in paintings by his blue skin. While he is an interesting figure in his primary form, the complexity of Vishnu's character becomes clear when he assumes new forms, known as avatars, in order to save the earth from various dangers. Vishnu is part of the Trimurti alongside Shiva and Brahma, and is considered the "supreme God" in the Vaishnavite tradition.
