It was time to test my brand new Illustrator CS4... and same time have a good excuse to draw some more babes pinup style! :)

I tried to combine conventions from the old WWII bomber noseart girls and modern pinup imagery.

Everything but the old paper background is vector work.


Cool pose reference by: :iconchi-yo:

I'd like to play with vectors sometime...

:)

Everything is painfully slow yet wondefully sharp
and accurate with vectors.

my lineart is painfully slow as it is, I doubt I'll go down that road...

One must endure all the pain and slowness for the sake of art! ;)

I'm constantly thinking of ways, how to make my work (and life)
even more painful and slow. :D

Hey, they are playing for the ice hockey world championship
right now in Switzerland! Are you ready for the epic hockey
match between Finland and Canada? :D

I endure much pain and slowness for the sake of sport...at the moment my arms and legs are covered in bruises :D

but I know what you mean, lately I've been trying to figure out a way to make my lighting/shading look more natural.

Ice Hockey huh? Not my favorite way to spend an evening...but then again neither is sitting in a pub while our city's entire team is there getting drunk.

As Dr Phil would say, "Pain is good, it keeps us going!" :D

I'm not that interested about the hockey either... but I'm patriotic
enough to keep an eye on the results. Especially when we play
against our arch-nemesis; Sweden. Oh boy, we'd hate to lose
to them!

I love arnica, it's a wonderfull herb that helps to speed up healing bruises.

XD, kinda like us loosing to the US?
mruottin's avatar
Yup, I could imagine it's the same. Sweden is the
slightly bigger and sometimes better big brother
to Finland that we love to hate. :D

This pretty much sums it up: [link]
They didn't fight in the WWII, we did. :D
