Welcome! I'm flattered you've taken the time to view my work. Below are a collection of pinup girls I did while underway aboard the USS Nevada. I will also post work from CHOW and COW when I compete. Critiques and advice are, as always, welcome! Thank you for your time!
I work with pen (Bic, micron, sharpy) on paper and transfer to digital to clean and colorize. I'm pushing my digital painting skills as of late. (Hit F11 for Full screen.)

In the submarine force we have many traditions. One such tradition is Tube Girls. During the last 24 days of patrol a pin-up girl was placed on each tube as a count down to return date. During my patrol I illustrated one girl each day and posted them for the crew. I hope you enjoy them as much I did creating them. They where drawn with ink on paper and then formatted digitally for your viewing pleasure.

Welcome to CA!
For viewing purposes you should make your artworks a little smaller.
It's just a little bit more comfortable to look at.
It is evident that already know a bit of anatomy but you have to maintain the proportions. Some liberties can be taken in pinup but it still has too look like there could be a functional skeleton under all that skin.
Also, the feet should almost never be on a horizontal line. It looks stiff and kills depth.
If you work strictly in line try to add some lineweight to the things closest to the "lens" to so the eye can easily distinguish between fore- and background.
Hope that helps!
