I felt like painting, and between looking at too much Robert McGinnis and being a big fan of Craig Elliot, well, this is what came out.

And of course, it's all because ArtOriginal had such a fascinating photo. Thanks! You have inspired SOOO many pictures!



[Update: Fixed the background a little, and a few touchups here and there to make her face pop out more]

Really cute :-)
I'm slightly bothered by the "landing strip"... it spoils the wildness, I think. I'd prefer all shaved and smooth, as if there never were any hair, or a more natural, wilder triangle.
But she's really cute and your inspiration is amazing. :-)

Haha, thank you. I feel like I'm starting to get a feel for it. I definitely feel like I have a long ways to go, and I definitely have no clue when it comes to real media. Digital lets you get away with a lot :).

Craig Elliot is great, nice to see someone mention him because he is so good but doesn't have a lot fo name recognition. I picked up a couple of his prints at SDCC a couple years ago and then he contributed the introduction for a book I did some prep work on earlier this year. A real genuine dude and works real hard.

Yeah, he does seem to be under-appreciated. I've been wanting to buy one of his oils, but he won't sell them :). What's the book?
