Betty and Veronica by BenTanArt Betty and Veronica by BenTanArt
This was originally done for Craig Yoe's new book on Betty & Veronica, but alas, the publisher changed directions. So here it is.

It's a different style for me, trying to mesh Dan DeCarlo's style with my own.

I actually find them a little creepy...:).

You've caught the difference between these two (as written) very well: Betty looks wholesome; Ronnie, a little more sophisticated and maybe ever-so-slightly fake (or, put another way, Bettie's just being Bettie posing for a photo, while Veronica's hamming it up a little).

I never understood why Betty and Veronica bitched over being with archie, when they could have settled things by 'kiss and make up'.

Nicely done here.

They're both adorable! Now I see why Archie has such a hard time deciding between them.

Thanks! I can definitely see their appeal, but I fail to see Archie's appeal to them :).

Creepy? No. I look at this as a BIG F-U (if the pic is from Archie's POV), saying "yes, Betty/Veronica is my girlfriend now." ;3 Why those two fought so long over some silly boy... Perhaps it was some natural rivalry between our ladies? They were/are so obviously meant for each other! LOL!

Plus, you have to admit Betty/Veronica is a hot couple.

WOW! That's an excellent depiction of the girls. Rather reminiscent of how they looked in the late 60's to early 70's.
If my memory serves me well that is.

Thank you! They're probably more influenced by the Dan DeCarlo versions...though they are slightly more realistic than his style is.

Yup, I'm old. Betty used to wear little white gloves to school back in my day. This of coarse juxtaposed against her puny bikinis while at the beach - often in the same edition.

Oh yes, and very good idea giving Veronica a differing skin colour to Betty. The story is that Betty and Veronica are actually identical save for clothing and hair. Interesting how much of a difference that actually makes.

Cheers!

What!?! They're sisters?!? I had no idea!

Well, not sisters in the story line but in artistic conception I suppose.
The artists probably started doing it to save time in the early days and the practice simply stuck. Or its a long running metaphor that Betty and Veronica are really two sides of the same coin.

The style and look of the picture reminds me of those goofy beach movies.

Very nice work. B-)

And only slightly phallic. Can't understand what the publisher was thinking. This is great. I would read it.

Actually I believe the change in direction was to not have other artists do pinups. Anyway, the overall phallic effect was supposed to be subliminal. :)
