Hello all and first a quick explanation. I have recently finished my media degree and since leaving university I have really wanted to (and been working on) my drawing skills.
I have been playing around with a new style which reflects my interest in pin-ups, rockabillie and punk style fashions and pop art. My biggest influence at the moment in this sort of work is an artist known as Shag with his simple and distinct female forms and unshaded colouring style.
I understand I need some practice with the female form (feet and hands have never ever been a good thing for me...) but I was wondering if anyone could recommend some tips on colouring or how I could improve my pictures shown below.
I know there are a lot of much better artists in this wonderful corner of the internet and I admire many of them, and would love to hear some feedback. I am also working on a variety of print and tshirt designs which I hope to upload in the near future for some critique.
Ok, these first two are done using no shading and a simple colour pallete. I wanted to make a series of zombie girl pin-ups, these were some first attempts and playing around with the idea.
This is my most recent work, using the same sort of art style but adopting shading. Sadly, I think I didn't do Jessica's ample bosom justice....
EDIT: Thought I would upload the original Jessica Rabbit sketch and the first colouring attempt I made using no shading, just for comparison purposes
