I'm still obsessing about my previous 60's project. I had so much fun with it, I wish I could share the end results, but I'm still waiting for the illustrations to post to my client's webiste.
In the meantime, I'm doing some additional figures for my portfolio. I began with my trusty 1968 JC Penney's catalog and selected a figure to draw - the model on the far right, in the blue dress advertised for $12.96! I don't know why I picked her, she is not particularly engaging, nor do I find the dress interesting. There was just something about the pose that I wanted to explore.
I tried to use my ink pen but was not very successful. So I redrew her head, and redrew additional features, thinking I could patch them together in Photoshop, which I did.
Before you leave, check out the JC Penney catalog photo again. What the heck is that object in the lower right hand corner? A flying saucer? A slow cooker? And who let that pigeon into the shoot? Are they standing in mud? Quite the photo!
