    Wink published piece...

    Hi and Here's a Pin-up I did for a book "Drakiana, art Muse" that will be sold through Heavy Metal Mag. This piece will also be in our pinup//pulp book to be released later this year, Se7en & Kelly X...
    This is my Piece and the writeup (in French & English), Title "Classic Eye Candy", hope you likie...

    http://drakaina.com/etremuse/?p=230

    I will post the piece when transformed... but hit the link for now... ok

    I got the permission to show this before it goes to print and did a wip of progress shots, in case anyone wanted to see my process. This painting was a request from this client and tried to change it up as much as possible, I do agree that it looks much like the original photo. Thank you

    I like it very much but, and I am most probably wrong here, it seems to be a copy of what you saw, no feeling about it. Sure the rendering and drawing is great, the model is fantastic, but it may as well have been a photograph. Unless my untrained eyes (and they are untrained) don't see it yet. Still, it's great, I can't do it...

    Shame you didn't get to experiment with it a bit more. Ah well, great opportunity to be published! Well done, you should be proud. It's very accomplished, looks good.

    there's an emphasis of form that isn't just copying a photo. Photos don't usually pop out at you so much. I think her right thigh seems a bit cut into by her panties. It should be a bit fuller. All in all excellent values. Keep it up!

    I agree with TASmith - this has an almost 3D look with the foreshortening on the legs and the way it's painted really adds extra punch to the original photo ref. Awesome job KX, this is one of you best to date! : )

    Really nice piece this Kelly. I like the way you have lifted that curtain on the bottom right - it kinda 'comments' on the pose in an interesting way. I like too, your handling of the chair forms and the flooring aroung the chair legs - its alive with something felt, not just 'there it is'.

    Congrats in getting a print deal on this too! Has it been processed yet? If not, there is a tiny thing you might want to have a look at that slightly bugs me. It is not immediately apparent and not that big a deal, but there is a slight issue with the forshortening of her left arm (the one on the right for us). Thing is, it's not the drawing of the arm, its just the little bit where her knuckles obscure the wrist that sort of messes up how you read the arm in space. If you put your finger over this bit you will see that the arm is perfectly OK, so its just a tiny little area as the wrist becomes the hand that is causing the trouble.

    As I say, this is no big deal, but if it was bothering you I hope this may be of some help in tweaking that area if you felt the same way about it.

    Anyway, great work from you and looking forward to seeing more.

    I like the overall softness you've added that wasn't in the photo.

    I really like what you have done with the floor, it's raised the level of everything else - there is an electricity between the spread feet now, you are using gestural compositional forms to tell your story!
    The arm is a lot better, but the rest of the hand could do with some attention if you get a moment - I feel that you have not quite understood it as a structure and because the arm is looking better it is flagging up the weakness in the hand. Sorry to go on about it but since this is the main compositional pathway down to the all important legs it is a vital little area IMHO. You have done such a great job everywhere else, the raised arm is particularly on the money, that getting this bit right would really pay off. Feel free to ignore me as a pain in the ass if you are happy with things though.
    Most importantly, it is looking like a Kelly x and a particularly good one! Lovely work.

    Omen Spirits, thanks you so much.
    Chris, thanks and I was able to make the hand better, yes I agree that when I fixed that arm the hand became a shouting beacon to be fixed, ha ha!! Also I've never met an arm man before, cool.
    TASmith, I believe you must then be a leg man by your comment?? Thanks again.
    No update just saying thanks.
