Well In Europe and I believe In a lot of countries around the world(example: Venice, Italy or Brazil) now is the time for Carnevals where ppl dress up and basically do cosplay or masking to lighten the mood before valentine's day. In my country it's the 2nd tuesday of febuary when we do that. So when i saw your pic I just thought it'd be cool if they had something similar in NY so sexy women could dress up as the statue of liberty. Also on most carnevals they pick out the Queen who's supposed to ward of Evil Witches for the next year or smthng similar.
Words can't even begin to express how brilliant this is. I of course love her booty; it is spectacular, soft and really natural in such an appealing and darling way. I also LOVE how you put a lot of work and effort into her face, her pose, and darn, her feet, and it didn't just turn out to be a complete 'ass'-drawing, but the emphasis on the piece, as a whole, is just stunning. This remind me of the good old-school pinups, where the sexy dames were allowed to smile and have this innocent sexiness going on. It's very similar to this piece, and I am so impress. Great job!
YES! Now that is the kind of comment I have been hoping for. You really got it. They're not just a body - my favourite part to do is the face, especially the eyes. This one had to have a sort of urban hip-hop vixen feel to her, and they were very specific about her body type, but I left my stamp on it Instead of giving her a sultry expression, I wanted to have a little mischief in her eyes and at the corner of her lips. For the pose, she had to stand tall - she's firmly planted and balanced. No cocky hip bringing the attention to her booty - I let the costume do that so it was more natural and not forced. The pocketbook, bangles and hoop earrings the only accessories aside from the traditional crown and torch of Lady Liberty, to balance it out. The long, wavy hair standing in for the missing robes, with the costume styled like modern toga-style clubwear.
I'm really glad you enjoyed it, you might like some of my other pinups. I'm very fond of classic, old school pinups - from dames in peril to good girl art. I'm still learning femme fatales
