Hello gang!
I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend.
I have spent much of today working on a pinup for an instructional book on how to paint pinups of which I have few morsels of information on… I learned it will be available sometime in the fall of 2009. There are 10 artists in it but I am only aware of two others otherwise I have no idea who else is in it. I am familiar with the other two and they are better artists than me so I am in good company! One is a DC Comics artist that has some books and dvd’s out by major publishers. I have gotten to know him through online art groups, myspace and via his weekly live webcam show… he is so funny and a real cool guy… some of you might have heard of him (Tom Nguyen) Tom has inked and drawn everyone from Batman to Green Lantern to Justice League to the new Ghostbusters series. His book ‘Incredible Comics with Tom Nguyen: The Ultimate Guide to Creating Kick-Ass Comic Art” is widely considered the best ‘How To’ guide.

I will be pulling a late-nighter in an attempt to finish my portion of the contribution. Its an old school style pinup done in the same technique as Alberto vargas and George petty… not much different from the firefighter girl demonstration as seen in my pinup book from SQP.
For someone that hasn’t hand painted but worked digitally for the past 5 years its coming along pretty nicely so far. I will be dusting the cobwebs off my airbrush and firing it up tonight… I hope I can remember how to use it! 😉

Here is a sneak peak at my progress and to give you an idea of just how tiny and delicate this illustration is…
