Ex­pres­sion, at­ti­tude and lan­guage

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

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.
