Hello Fellow ArtRagers,
Looong time no See.. although I do keep cheking the gallery once in a while..
Yeah I know, it seems to be the trend nowadays.. :)

Anyways, haven't been painting too much, a few bits here and there, nothing worth showing off..haha.
Well, I have got in to a habit of sketching in my moleskein while flying and this one came outa a sketch I did.

Started with a pencil sketch went on to a Ligne claire drawing filled with colors and themn I got ambitious, so went on to a full fledged painting. No references except the luger. On and off work over a week. *phew*

Wouldn't this be a better way to counter terrorism?

At least the asswipes will turn off their cellphones when asked
...and the crew won't get groped!
Painted mostly with MyPaint, Gimp & ArtRage.

Glad You're back dear Fly, and with what a marvellous entry! This summer I enjoyed a wonderful book on Elvgreen and his commercila pin-ups, so I'm particularly glad to see the genre is not dead!:D

I like the way you painted the skin, even though I have a problem using weapon but overall, it is a well painted job.:)

Thanks Jasmine,
I had a bit of tough time doing the subtle blends in the skin :)
and I guess the weapon is only to be used for the good of the mankind haha!

Nice work. I like the old poster-esque feel. The skintones are fabulous.

What a fun piece. Excellent artwork and ... is that gun really loaded
or is it a new, innovative way to dispurse peanuts to the hungry
passengers? ;) :)

Haha, thanks Mairzie, I suppose nowadays they'd have to change to pretzels and not peanuts :)
Thanks Magen, I'm glad you liked it :)
At-TA, good advice there- never argue with a woman holding a gun, even better, never argue with a woman :D thanks for checking it out :)
