Shades of pink
I wanted a sense of beauty, melancholy and status to come out of this illustration. I find real sensuality and erotic atmosphere in the boudoir. The encounter between the classic pinup with a more contemporary fashion and glamour. I first started with a pencil sketch. At first, both legs were bent, but I revised the pose to reveal a more linear feel to the leg, giving it a bit of a stretch. I then did a flat colour version of the illustration directly on photoshop. From there I applied amounts of layers of shades and colour to create the depth and final rendition.
