Petra Hepburn - Sixties supermodel
_______________________________Originally Posted by PoshspiceHi Oblio,
I guess I select a topic now then?
I did think of doing Lyra or Lord Asriel from His Dark Materials to fit in with the Iorek Byrnisson theme, but something that doesn't require you to have read the book in advance is proably better... So I'm going to be self indulgent!
Petra Hepburn Sixties supermodel. Petra is an appalling example of how fashion superstardom can go to your head. She indulges herself in all the latest trends and vices of her age, and hangs around with the 'in' crowd of Sixties New York. (Warhol etc) Indulged and decadent, she knows no limits.
Examples of strong sixties female characters: Julie Christie, or Twiggy, Jane Birkin, Jean Shrimpton, Marianne Faithfull, Edie Sedgwick, Mary Quant, Diana Ross etc. For a good 'sixties look' think Linda Harrison as Nova in Planet of the Apes. Also think of movies like the original Casino Royale or even Austin Powers.
Your concept should include a feel for the sixties, but exageration is the key. Also concentrate on character and personality as well as 'the look'. And remember to think outside the box!
1 = Sixties
2 = Supermodel
3 = Trashy!
Now have fun!
Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
Please try to save your progress - maybe a nice tutorial is comming out.
BE PROFESSIONAL - only finished and good quality entries will be taken to the poll. The host will make the selection.
DON'T FORGET YOUR PRIZE! THE WINNER OF THIS ROUND WILL SELECT THE TOPIC OF THE NEXT ONE!
And will assist me in selecting the entries for the poll. In one week we'll have a new client.Vote him now

Great description. Not an easy task - i don't expect this thread to be flooded by entries - but it looks like a real job description.
reminds me of a song - "Lady of a certain age"
I'll try to join this one.

i need more work on the 60 design. but.. that's THE challenge i guess. yumm. if i'd only have the time
dolce vita (the movie) is supposed to be in our interest, eh ?

Sorry guys, no big breasts babes this time. Despite this I'm gonna try something.Originally Posted by OblioTwiggy, Jane Birkin...
___________Here to mess with the best.Throw crits please.
note from a 60s survivor: not all 60s women of fashion fame were Twiggy wannabees, though the trend toward near anorexic thinness pretty much began in that era. plenty of curvaceous and well-endowed women from that era, feel free to make 'em meaty if that's your inclination, though there weren't many garment racks in the trans-C cup region.
Continuity Break -- my sketchbook
Kata femme -- a 3D model WIP, now updated!
The Giordano Gambit -- Barsoomian Zingball at its best!
Valkyrie Ascending -- now updated with the second in a series!
ArmaRagnaGeddonRock-yer-Yuga! -- celeztial shitz 'n' gigglez
I . Miss . America -- "colored [eyes] may hypnotize..."
"In the end, Razputin, aren't we all just dogs playing poker?"
-- Edgar Teglee
Great start guys!
novenus - The pose is coming along really nicely. Are we going to see all of her? Cutting a character off at the ankles can look a bit awkward.
Bryan Young - Smashing pose, and loads of character already! Good to see things kicking off here...
Here's my start. This is tougher than I thought it might be...
Edit: Second update. Still trying for that McGinnis vibe with lots of patterned cloth. The blank space behind her is where I'm going to put the Warhol thing, and I'm still tryng to work out how to incorporate flat poster style into a more painty pic.
Final image. I had to rush the BG a bit as I'll be internet free for a couple of days so I needed to get it done tonight. Going to work some more on it some other time.
Billy took that 'photo of Petra on a hot New York afternoon in May, and it became one of his favourites. There was 'something' in her expression; something 'little girl lost', almost as though, for a moment, she'd understood how transient this all was. How ephemeral. The sixties were coming to an end, and things were changing; Billy had known it and somehow Petra had done as well. If only he could change things now...

Well your struggles are not apparent to us mortals. Both takes look great so far, but there's something quite striking about that 2nd pose. It does seem a little strange that the bottom of her dress lines up with the bottom of the bg image though.Originally Posted by PoshspiceThis is tougher than I thought it might be...
BryanYoung - As others have already mentioned, that sketch has all sorts of character. I think you could push the pose a little further by either twisting her hips away from us a little more, or bringing the far leg forward slightly help it line up with the hip.
Alright, I'm done nitpicking. Back to my own entry.
cool sketches u guys
heres a start:
Edit: heres a new version..not so sure about that ..
final: couldnt get any further than this tonight

Here's the bare bones of what I'm thinking of producing, this is a lot tougher than it sounded but I'm having fun looking at 60's stuff on the net anyway
Here's where I'm at with it right now, still lots of work to go with it but I'm enjoy doing it so much - so thanks Poshspice!
Here's my final, pleased with some bits and not so pleased with others.

Awesome thread already.... I lied about being in on the arctic undead, but damnit I want to finish this one.
*Place of holder*
I might give it a shot, should be a good excuse to to draw attractive women....
..I desperately need the practice!

___________Here to mess with the best.Throw crits please.
nice start this week!
don't really have time for this, but hey, it's not every day that you get to
draw a trashy sixties supermodel..
here's a Mcginnis inspired wip:
first of all, thanks for the comments! will try to take time of tomorrow to return the favor.
secondly, been busy with relatives n stuff during the holiday.. so there has not been time for any dates with
miss Hepburn.. here's the result of a last minute rendez vous with her.

OK, so I KNOW I wont be getting this done tonight but here is what I have. I tried doing the drawing in the computer but I just couldn't get the control I can get with a pencil. There are probably 10 different iterations that I didn't save that I have done over the week. I finally broke down and scanned in a traditional drawing and did flat coloring. I think this method will work well in the future but I will have to scan in black and white instead of grayscale. If anyone has any advice, comments and/or critiques, I would love to here them!
She came out looking a lot like Twiggy in the face area so I added the shallow skin on the face to add a sort of drugged out aspect, something I will add to in rendering (if I ever do it with this piece.)

Damn i was gonna use the reference to todays trashyness by throwing a "purse" and "dog" in there - but Vahn beat me to it -
Guess ill have to come up with something a little different - Posh, i really like the use of "pop art" in your background that really caught my eye. I think the pose in the right is the stronger one.
Filip - i really like your wip - but i think it could use a little more 60's flare - mabye a design on the chair or somethign im not sure, but atm it doesn't exude that time period to me.
