Finally...! I finished my latest attempt at a pin-up Amazon, that persistent cliche of fantasy illustration that depicts girl warriors in tiny bikinis with improbable, un-liftable weapons. This ain't perfect, but it's a lot better than my previous attempts at this type of thing. The hands aren't quite right, and I could have given her more substantial stairsteps to pose on. The proportions are not "real girl" proportions, they are elongated fashion drawing proportions. Of course the bikini strips could not actually be worn without a lot of glue to stick to skin, but this is fantasy. The face, though, is that of a real girl who works at my workplace.
It's all done in Photoshop from an original pencil scribble that I posted here last year. I warn you that I am not going to stop making these digital character portraits, whether they are cliche's or not. Click on the pic for a larger view.
Photoshop, a lot of work over a long time, finished May 3, 2013.
