Dig. This customer wanted a pinup of his wife with a grill as a logo for his BBQ business/team called "Meat Candy". The digital painting was then printed on aluminum as a sign for their grill. They then proceeded to win first place in the first BBQ contest they brought her to. Pretty rad.
So this one was kind of different and fun. The Customer wanted a custom pin up painting created for his guitar which he calls "SuperGirl". So I was to use that as a starting point and come up with the details. Oh, and he also wanted it to look like a certain celebrity, so that's a first for me as well. Well, now it's time to go make a shipping crate for it, and then start on sketches for two different pin up commissions that have to be done for Christmas, busy busy.
All done! The customer wanted a pin up painting of his wife with a military aviation theme for his craft brewing company called "Fly By Brewing Company." I painted this pinup mostly with airbrush to give it more of that classic WWII era feel. The wings behind her are the design of the US Army Air Corps pilot wings pin of the time that military pilots would wear on their uniform. I chose to abbreviate "Company" to "Co." to save space but also because certain words were usually printed in their abbreviated form in posters of the era. I hand lettered the words with a brush in a font typical of propaganda posters of the time. Now I think I'm gonna go have a beer. Stay tuned for two digital pin up commissions coming soon.
Finally all done...the Olympics as well as working on the SEO of this site as well as some other online related work caused a bit of a slow down for this one; but I am pretty happy with the results. So up next is a Soviet military themed pinup, stay tuned.
That's right, the title don't lie! It took a while for me to get back to this painting what with Christmas, illness and the on-going battle with the powers of darkness, but I finally got the Nazi bitch done. I was originally going to do a black spatter over the red background, but as i started blocking in the black I decided I liked that look. It seems to be a bit reminnicent of 70's posters for schlock B-movies. Which seems perfect as it's theme has obvious connection to Nazi-Exploitation vehicles like "Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS." Anyway, enjoy. I am not sure what painting will be up next as I don't have a shoot in the cue...so we shall all be surprised...
That being said, the lighting in the photo is a bit off and as a result the lights and whites are a bit washed out...so I will have to retake the photo before it gets posted in the gallery section. Anyway, here it is for now...gaze upon her golden splendor haha
Things have been super busy, but I finally completed the bodybuilding pinup painting. I decided to go with a vignetted background and I shou
