This is my entry for independent luxury lingerie designer Karolina Laskowska's illustration competition! I managed to make it from start to finish today, whew (what's a deadline?) It's a mock-up pulp cover featuring her gorgeous “Monika" set.
I love the references + illustrations— so interesting
Pin-ups and Their Reference Photos
Every artist has to start somewhere. It’s fun to compare the photo to the painting and see what the artist chose to exaggerate or change completely. Though there’s a spark of life and personality in the faces of some of these models that the artist either couldn’t or chose not to capture. Glad the original photos survived.
Need to do a real pinup shoot for my blog, complete with adorable poses. But what to wear?
I love the original photos for these.
