2 Mini Pin-ups

This is an attempt at doing digital figures in a stylized way, where I lay down a flat area of color for the figure and then add shaping in opaque overlays of lighter colors. I want to keep it simple because the drawing is tiny and is just a casual sketch, not a fully realized figure rendering. I still don't have any background. These figures are from memory, not from models or model photographs. I could put silly high heels on their feet if I wanted to get into more detail. Many old-time pin-up artists used this technique with gouache (opaque watercolor) but I am working with new-time Photoshop. I could do a lot of these, and probably will.

2 mini pinups are Photogouache, about 5" x 5", February 14, 2012.
