Here is the ongoing series of Victory Gals start.
I will do my best to keep new paintings of this series in the original post.
Thanks for visiting,
I did a little online poll, as to what people really
wanted to see for a present day Victory Gal
and there was an overwhelming landslide vote for the A-10
I wanted to give the present day aircraft the same nostalgic pin up feel, but as always try and push the subject matter a bit to keep it fresh.
This is my first painting where I collaborated with a professional model for inspiration.
Her name is Veronika, and her web site is www.perfectmuse.com.
Feel free to drop her a line if you like this Victory Gal to show your apreciation of lending her beauty to this series.
Hope you guys like,
It's at the bottom of these pics and the end of the forum thread as well.

Thanks for the great response guys.
I am a little bummed to have been knocked down to 4 stars but I guess thems is the way it goes.
In any event I wanted to offer the loyal participants of this thread a look into my next series:
To continue my love of marrying stylized pin up with machinery and tie in my passion for classic cars I have decided to think ahead of the completion of the 12 Victory Gals and compose my first in a series of "BigBlockGals".
This is Big Block Belle- the car is my pride and joy dream car my 69 Chevelle. Who may unfortunately be on the chopping block to raise money for Teddy. My wife has been amazing in pushing it as far back from the money raising efforts for therapy, but alas unless the Victory Gals calender can get a sponsor and take off- it may be an inevitable but neccessary loss. In any event this was pencilled on the computer- I used a self taken photo of my car to exact the proportions of the grill and such, but ultimately judging on the painting there isn't anything left of the initial reference.
I want to make this about expressive idealized figures, interesting color choices and visual impact while taking the traditional car pin up painting thing and giving it a little more artistic merit intergrity opposed to the ussual beefcake magazing photo spreads. I am hoping that some hot rod mags may be interested in giving there pages a new look as well.
Anyways, enough babbling. I hope you like!
Don't worry there are going to be some Fords and Mopar beauties to come.
