Expression, attitude and language
A pin-up is more than just a sexy person. They’re a sales person selling an idea, a product or lifestyle. They must have an eye-catching expression, exhibit a certain attitude and convey the language of pin-up, so the audience can recognise it immediately. To do all this, you need to get a balance between charming and sensuality. Producing a range of sketches is key.
Trying different sketches
I do several sketches for this workshop, all of them with an energetic expression and a touch of the sensuous, while mixing contemporary and vintage touches. A close-up shot is my preferred option. Sketching digitally saves a lot of time, because I’m able to quickly tweak the sketches until I’m happy with the character’s expression.
