Hollywood Glamour by DiRi Hollywood Glamour by DiRi
I wanted to do another classic style pinup-drawing, so I decided to create something which could be from the glamourous Hollywood's 1940's, but still be modern. You tell me if I manage that...

Hope you all like it.

Original size: 55x75cm (22x30")
Technique: charcoal and pencils
Time: 30 hours

Die Haut sieht so wunderbar zart und weich aus! Und die Schuhe glänzen sehr schnieke ;)

Brilliante Arbeit, mein Lieber!:clap:

I'm not an expert on the 1940's yet this is very modern.

Hooray for glamourizing a real woman's body with all of her lush curves.

I'm pretty sure you managed it. ^__^ the high waisted shorts own and the hair style is very Monroe. The wrist length gloves remind me of Breakfast at Tiffany's. lol. And of course, the nifity little thing holding her cig. ^_^ Kudos.You so pulled off the style of this time period!!! And the picture is AMAZING!! I would kill for that kind of talent.

Lol. No problem. ^__^ Seriously though, in my totally awesome opinion, you nailed it and I would LOVE to see more of this style. I completely love that time period and that classic style. ^^ Uber kudos to you. Lol, if you could do like a Betty Page one, that would own. XDD

yes... Betty Page is on my list... I think one has to draw her once if one wants to call himself a pinup artist
