Eighth of a 12 piece series that will become the 2005 Retro Girl Calendar. August features fun on the beach because after all, you have to have at least one of these in every retro calender, right?

This piece is dedicated to and , the wonderful people who watch me who have their birthdays in the month of August.

Medium: Original sketch drawn over in Photoshop with the pen tool, not vectors since the lines and shapes rasterize. It is similar process, but by devart definitions, anything that rasterizes is not vector art. Details added with brush tool.

Simple, yet gives perfectly out the warm, sunny beach atmosphere. Good choices for colors, they enhance the late summer feeling.

You so totally ROCK, GQ! <chuckle> I was channeling Crush for a bit... well, my niece loves "Finding Nemo", and she makes me do his lines every time I visit her. ^_^

Great work! Can't wait to see more! ^_^

Cool. :) you know August is the month of my birthday. And you trule picked a sexy girl for it to represent. :) Plus it is also my favorite month to go to the beach; summer gets hotter during that month. :) Again excellent retro style; saved for a pin up like this. :) I fave this cause it's both awesome and is the month of my birthday. :)

Cute :hug:

This is one of my favorites yet because of the colors. And I love the contrasting stripes on the ball and the tent. Looks pretty cool...I mean warm.... And of course, retro girl rocks!

Once again lovely. I like the black hair, red and black always go together and it makes for a nice contrast with the orange and other warm colors of the peice.

August has always been the "last fling" months for me, the last month during summer vacation.
