Sunshine Pin Ups July 2014
Holy crap I got this one done within the month its supposed to be for! :w00t:
This girl is very loosely based on a photo but I completely changed her face, outfit and skin tone after watching to much Gurran now she doesn't seem very retro at all unless maybe 80's style? Anyway she's done and I'm happy with it for the most part.  Lines are completely digital and I'm still not loving that, there's a certain warmth and texture missing that you get with pencil or pen and its hard to keep the overall perspective while drawing digitally.  But that's the point of these Sunshine pin up posters, practice and experimentation :D

Its been a LONG time.  I have been visiting the site very regularly to check out my favourite artists but personally I haven't submitted anything for about 3 years!  That's not to say I haven't been drawing, because I have been but its been nothing more than sketches really.  And during this hiatus I have found my niche and it is what it always was when I was back in high school.  No more comic book/ game fan art, from now on its girls, monsters, cars and bikes! 

I've also come to really love retro/rockabilly/grindhouse styled art and you will notice it come through in my work, the influence from a few of my absolute favourite artists will be clearly evident but it makes me happy and you know what they say 'imitation is the sincerest form of flattery'. 

So from now on that's all you will be seeing from me :P Not sure how regularly but then I'm just drawing for me now the things I want to draw whenever I can fit it in around life (hopefully somewhat regularly).  I have a stack of crude sketches lying around either in need of colour or a quick redo so they can be posted, but I'm starting off by posting....wait for it....someone else's work! :iconrickcelis: did this fantastic Betty Rubble pin up that I just had to colour.  

The next one will be my own lines for sure.

Until then (if there is anyone out there still watching) keep an eye out!

I'm a sometimes artist! Only doing it for my own personal amusement these days though, so I havent really improved that much in the past 5years.... but I still knock out the occasional decent picture if time and inspiration allow :)
