Materials used: Ochre Paper ("Carta da spolvero" in Italian) Coloured pencils DERWENT STUDIO brand, PILOT V5 pen, COPIC opaque white gouache for highlights.
Clearly inspired by Joe Chiodo. I consulted his great book "How to Draw PinUps" and stop on page 78.
But I modified his girl a bit. First of all I modified the proportions in order to have a less "cartoon" charachters, adjusting head to torso
proportions, and made the arms longer. I skipped the spacesuit of his girl to prefer a nude look (don't know why....).
High heels, stockings, opera gloves....everything for a classic pinup look has been used.
Great book, the one by Joe Chiodo, by the way... if one plans to have one book only on "how to draw pinup" maybe is the one to have (of instructional kind).
During years I collected a number of books on this topic. I would like to post my reviews here in my Journal entries, if someone is interested. Who knows?
Again, since paper size exceeded scanner window, two separate scans were performed and the two half images were attached together with GIMP.
unfortunately, the operation is still slightly visible.
For what concerns the title....never mind. I will explain it, one day or the other....

Love this piece, has a contemporary feel, very vintage but with a touch of modern. Along those lines anyway Awesome work!
