TOM- The assignment for one of my classes is to create two illustrations that can be used as promo pieces. The idea was to draw whatever you like, just as long as it is a true representation of the kind of work you would like to be hired to do. I thought about it, and came to the conclusion that i really like to draw hot chicks. So, i started sketching and came up with this quick sketch, a chick painting tattoo's on herself. Cool idea, i thought. I showed it to my instructor and she quickly informed me that there was absolutely no concept behind it! She encouraged me to rethink it and perhaps add some background that would push the idea a little further.
I liked the whole tattooing idea and wanted to keep the pose, so i just put her in an environment that made a little more sense. Now she's at a construction site using the paint that's already there and putting on a show for the guys. Like i said in a previous post, I've been looking at alot of pin-up art lately and been loving how ridiculous and silly alot of there concepts are, yet it's there execution and attention to detail that makes it all.
I inked it. I made the guys in the background a little bigger than in the pencils and added more detail to the room.
And here's the color! I spent close to eleven hours coloring this today. I really tried to take my time and play with warm and cool colors as well as add some fancy touches to it. I would talk more about it, but I'm ready to pass out, it's almost 2 in the morning and i have to get up for work in the morning...Lt me know what you think (anybody?) Should i send this out as a promo piece? Peace Out.
