This was just a quick pen doodle I did trying to figure out what the pose should be. I redrew the final from scratch, following the way Clair Wendling mentioned that she draws, allowing me for more practice. I also did another attempt before that, but I ended up partially referencing the pose from a model picture, which I cannot say was what I wanted. Here it is:
I like the fun in these drawings. I always wanted to do 1 or 2 of such pinups, but maybe with my own twist.
What makes these interesting to me (beside being a guy, i guess:) is that unlike so many other drawings that are done now days, these aren't of women with some unbelievable proportions (think J Scott Campbell girls, which, in my opinion, tend to get really annoying now days), but rather of natural looking women, someone real, alive. The Marvel style stuff, however "cool" it might be in the nerdy/guy sense of thinking, feels like plastic dolls and to me, and borders on the feeling of cartoon porn rather then interesting and tasteful art. And these old-school pinups are a lot more intricate in the way they display the idea. But I guess that is just what was found interesting back then, the "Marvel" girls of those times... But hey, at least they do not make women look like they should stuff themselves with silicone and stop eating to look beautiful!
In any case, the best part is that while doing that drawing I really came to learn a ton about anatomy. And boy did I ever had fun drawing! This is probably one of the more finished works I have done so far, albeit without a background, but that will at some point change. I am also thinking of trying my hand with some watercolors next time. I will try a couple of drawings straight on the watercolor paper, and see what I can come up with. Probably will be a disaster, but her, what the heck!
Aaaaaaaaanyway, here is the rest of the stuff I sketched from the last month or so that I missed putting up here:
Till next time!!!
