    VENUS ON THE HALF SHELL, REVISITED

    http://www.artrenewal.org/asp/databa...ge.asp?id=2921

    We need a revision of Botticelli's Venus (the other characters are not needed). It needs to be contemporary, but not trashy. Venus, for this illustration, needs to capture the character of love, beauty, and the strength of womanhood. Class is the word of the day. It needs to be elegant, slightly, but not overtly, erotic for the Valentine week (yeah, it's slightly late, so make it special!). The clam shell is imperative to the character illustration. Ideally, the finished image will in some way be reminiscent of Botticelli's piece, while at the same time presenting womanhood, beauty and love in a fresh, contemporary light. Keep it original and creative.

    Heh. Yeah. I had serious reservations about this, but I had promised myself that we would do at least one Valentine themed ChOW.

    Incidently, this wasn't my first choice. You get that next week.

    After last weeks topic, I think this one's perfectly justified. Besides, I love working on things that are easy on the eyes.

    contemporary, classy, and not so-trashy.. hmm.. will do

    Though seriously Venus doesn't necessarily have to be a "hot chick" (although it helps )

    Definition of Venus from Pantheon.org

    Definition of Venus from Wikipedia.org

    This should be difficult fun....good luck everyone.

    actually by modern standards Botticelli's Venus, isn't a "hot chick" She isn't the "Popular shape" Frazzetta would never have drawn her, and Vogue would have laughed.

    nice topic. got ta try it.

    Define irony

    In the last issue of International Artist, the topic of Venus won the first prize. I tought I'd share the image for a ref. Sorry for the poor quality.

    Chow 17: Venus On The Half Shell, Revisited

    This is Venus. A goddess from the 'Hills of Valentina'. Once.. she was loved, you can still she a small memory on her shoulder. There's always a little smile on her face, that's because of him (he's an eternal happy memory). The only problem... he was mortal. So, can't give her love to him anymore, she gives to all people in need of love. The choice of the haircolor, like fire.. she's HOT!
