classic pin up by kinkei classic pin up by kinkei
In work everyone was drawing pin ups in Gil Elvgren style... This is my attempt.
I don't normally paint in photoshop so this was a real challenge, what a learning curve!!!!!
Im really pleased with the result, could be better. :heart:
Wanted to post it online.
Hope you guys like. Any tips on painting I would appreciate.

I'm not a master at digital painting, but I would say that references and real life are your friends. A lot of people say that using a reference means you aren't as good as a person who doesn't use them, but using references is what will help you to make your paintings more life-like. Even just looking at them and looking at the way the colors interact in a photo can help you become a better artist, in all medias, not just digital.

I really like the painting by the way. I can tell it's still yours, even if it isn't your usual style. Keep up the great work!

Is amazing how you can work between two completely different styles and yet, make it both gorgeous. I really like seeing you try this kind of pin-up! Awesome like always

It's so interesting to see you do this after so much vector styled work. Though as a tip I think you are shying away from contrast and gradients a lot. Don't be afraid of stronger, more dragged out shadows and highlights! It does wonders when you're trying to give a more 3D feel. Her proportions look spot on and you have a great coloring sense. She looks lovely! But again; use gradients if you want less flat looking rendering.

i'll admit i was a bit reluctant to add too much shadows. if i decided to do this sort of art again, i'll bear that in mind! thanks x

I mean it is a pin-up and you don't really need dramatic shadows or lighting, but some more shadows on her thighs for example; would make them feel much rounder. C: Keep up the great work.

Whoa. I can definitely see this is out of your usual style, but it's such an awesome change. I'd love to see you remake some of your pinups in this more "real" style.

This is an absolutely beautiful picture. The coloring is great, with the texture giving it a rather "fun" quality to it.

I do love this, but I agree with AngelCrusher, some anatomy mistakes. I get that the breasts are meant to be big, but they are to far forward. Also, arms are too short and head is too large. This was a great way to get out of your comfort zone though, so great job!

While I enjoy your usual style (and it's very distinctive), it's really nice to see something different from you! Good for you for getting a little bit out of your comfort zone. :)
