I know it's a tired old way to illustrate the concept of vanity: a woman with a mirror. But I am in love with the wonderful vintage postcards that :iconpostcardsstock: features , and I have been wanting to use one of them as reference, so--there you go.

Nice drawing!! :+favlove: It is cool to see a woman drawn as a "real" woman, bizarre anatomy abounds here on DA and I don't like it. You did a brilliant job on the anatomy, especially her, ah, "assets". :) What materials did you use for this drawing?

Thank you for the lovely comment--much appreciated. :)

I used colored pencil, then added the watercolor-wash background in Photoshop.

I'm with you on the bizarre anatomy thing here (and elsewhere!) Sometimes it's fun to exaggerate for effect, but mostly I really strive to depict bodies in all their wonderful real-life variety, including curves, bumps, bones, dimples, etc. etc. :dance:

Classic! So unusual in the DA world to see women drawn like "real" women!

Thank you, Bill! Yes, there are a lot of weird depictions of female anatomy around, here on DA (not to mention in the world o' comics...) ;)

Thanks a bunch for the :+fav: too!
