Mrs. Peel, We're Needed!

We had a great 2 model set up last night with John and Rosie as Steed and Emma Peel, the original 60's Avengers. We ran the poses longer so we weren't overwhelmed by trying to get in all the information from 2 models. Lots of Petula Clark music for inspiration! Thanks John and Rosie for your hard work!

The Woodland Fairy

Here's another one from workshop sketch to finished art. Sara Streeter as a woodland fairy. Okay, I admit this one got a bit corny, but the pose seemed to suggest that approach. Hope fairies are immune to deer ticks! Thanks Sara!

Poor Little Fishy!

Marissa Gomez posed for us a month or 2 ago in a great sailor girl costume. One of the drawings I did inspired me to try a more finished calendar piece ala Gil Elvgren, the king of pin up. It needed a gag, so I added the little fish and the hungry seagulls. Anyway, I think it worked pretty well. Thank Marissa!

Derby Doll

We had the great Stacy Walker doing a kick ass job as a roller derby gal Wednesday night. I think she could go pro! I thought I'd post the sketch and a paint over I did later. Thanks Stacy!

Cowpokes, Hippies and More

Here are a few from the last month or so, Jonathan as a cattle driver, Taryn as a 60s love child, Larva as a middle eastern dancer and Debra sunning on the beach. Thanks to all, they work hard to bring us some great characters to draw.

The Jewel Thief

We had the lovely Sara Streeter last night as a Femme Fatale. A little dramatic under lighting at the end was a good challenge. Thanks Sara!

An Offering of Snakes

I took one of the Sara drawings I liked from last week and colored it up. Her bowl was actually a foam core disk, I thought it could use a little edge, so a snake.

Nymph or Naiad?

Those classical guys. I always get those two confused. Anyway, we had the lovely and talented Sara Streeter last night as a Nymph/Naiad maiden, Waterhouse meets Game of Thrones.I tried a new paper, Canson XL, and it works great compared to the Strathmore I have been using since God was a boy.A bit smoother but still plenty of tooth. Good dark tones without looking as heavy. thanks Sara!

Egon Schiele and More Guns

We recently had Daniella Traub posing as an Egon Schiele model and she was Wunderbar! Then Tish Marie appeared as a 70s action film gal with gun, always a good subject. Fun stuff.

Starlets and Beach Bunnies

Debra Haydn was great as a sparkly starlet (I hurt my back so the other sketches from that evening were stinkers) and Lauren Annette was rockin' as a 60s beach bunny/ Gidget type. Her water bottle had to stand in as a Coke bottle.
