I came home today and my wife and child were not home so I started a thread on Facebook that they were abducted by aliens. I than started to doodle and of course my mind went into the direction of alien pin up girls. Maybe I will doodle and sketch more of them. I see a series coming out of this…
I am continuing my digital painting techniques and this time, working from a photo still, I let myself be a little more painterly in my technique. Sticking with the pin-up girl style I let myself be more fluid with my brush strokes and make them look a little more like brush strokes than filter effects and harder edged.
Same image but giving it that old paper feel, like in my previous pin-ups:
I have been in the mood to do some digital painting and play with some techniques again. I think it is the time of year. So why not do some pin-up girl art. Here is a photo I found online and did some techniques in photoshop. The second image is taking the raw photo and actually “painting” the photo. I hope you enjoy and I hope to get more practice under my belt and start sketching some original pieces and uploading them. Enjoy and feedback and comments are always welcome!
A note and shout out to the original photographer: This is not my original photo – just playing around with some techniques here is a link to the original photographer that took the image.
Using some brushes and “painting” as if I was using oils. At the end I overlaid the image on canvas to give it an oil on canvas feel.
I was playing around with some tutorials today and worked on a tutorial to help create the classic 1950’s pin-up poster style. I am attaching the original piece that I worked off of and the final product. Hope you enjoy, this was fun and I would like to do a lot more with this down the road. Comments are welcome.
This is the original image from istock photo.
After doing a few tutorials this is what the end result was.
