    Holy Pin-Up, Batman. . .


    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
