My first pinup piece of 2016! 
Decided that it was about time I do something from the Marvel / X-Men universe, so who better than Mystique!

This piece, like many of my pinups has been heavily based on a classic Gil Elvgren pinup (entitled "Darlene").

I absolutely adore the way this artist renders his women and arranges his poses - so I learn a lot from imitating his works and making them into something slightly different. 
My goal for the next year is to move away from copying his work so closely -- I'd like to capture the style and essence while still making it my own. 

Hope you like it! <3

Lovely! Kind like an old-fashioned pinup, like Marilyn Monroe.

I'm reminded when Mystique in the movies would say "Do you think I'm beautiful" when she reverts to her true self.
In my mind I keep saying "yes," and now she is posing provocatively and she looks good.

I like.

Really nice work, she looks awesome! I'm not good at critiques, and I read what "Athane" wrote and his points were fair but overall the piece is excellent.  Great work!
