Not really. But I couldn't resist adding this obligatory cheesecake image for my regular Thursday post. Still colouring here and there whenever the opportunity arises and decided to go for a simple girly pose.

Fairly simple process of drawing the lineart and scanning in to Photoshop. The line art is then saved as a floating layer and the colour is applied underneath. Very similar process to the old school approach of using an acetate sheet with the painted artwork below. I still use a mouse to colour (not easy) although I am considering learning to use the pen and digital pad that has been lying around new for the last couple of months in the studio. Yes, it has been a very busy month. Worked up some Grrrl textures for the top and gave her a blue tinged skin for effect.

Very pleased with the end result as this sort of pin-up style is not the sort of thing I get much of a chance to do.

  1. I've never really done a 'cheesecake' piece either so its another one to add to the list. I like the colours on this one Gary as it feels pretty mellow, everything bar the top is in the same subdued mode and even the flowers and the skulls on the top don't jar the scheme. Good job.
