    Holy Pin-Up, Batman. . .

    Howdy.

    Seeing as you all have been painting lovely ladies of stage and screen. . . not to mention pulp magazines and workshop callendars, here's a website for those of you who are interested. Challenge is to take one or all pics to paint. Could be quite fun to see the results.

    Follow the links. They're generally strait pics, not with the story telling of an Elvgren. But do what you will. . . straight or creative. They're just a great starting point.

    Here's a photo I had sitting on my hard drive for years of Mary Tyler Moore.

    No idea who the photographer was, but look at how he made the legs look like they go on for miles. . . That's a great model and a great photographer. Gives an idea of how to stage things to your advantage. Also love the patterns.

    Have fun!

    Thank You, dear D Akey for showing us where we may possibly dig out vintage pin-up models ....

    Unhappy Ugliest site i ever seen?

    Ugliest site i ever seen? Made in HTML hardcoding with no graphical skills at all IMHO. It hurts my sensible artistic eyes. The pinups looks a lot better

    I like that!

    and the end. (No more free disk space for the undos... Compressed at 30% (700mb — real size, and 200mb is the compressed undos), but it turned out, that the 200mb is`n enough for the A4, so I stop the drawing.)
    It's interesting, can I use the win32 api to truncate files from the front, in the place, — without copying?

    Photo can make you jealous of Dick VanDyke.
    I have a personally designed artwork gallery website at: www.stephenlopiano.com
    There is one section full of pages there under the Digital Artwork category that is devoted entirely to paintings I have created with Art Rage.

    Surprised to see this old thread pop up again. Nice to see.

    Enjoy! Lots of beautiful women in the world clearly willing to pose -- all to our benefit as artists. The photos are taking us quite a ways to making beautiful paintings. And I still love that shot of Mary Tyler Moore. One of my favorites.

    She looked a real smasher in the series "Dick van Dyke show", but the video, I have discovered, was in very bad quality and without .srt. And, the photo-shot's composition... is super.
