WIP - "Stabbed in the Back - Final Pencils"

Something a little different for me....

I've been trying to push myself in my artwork recently. I wanted to get some emotion in my pictures and depart from the standard pin-up style I always seem to fall back on. When I look back at my work almost all my girls are standard pin-up girls, sporting the standard pin-up smiles or temping pouts. For once, I wanted to try something with a little underlying meaning to it.

This idea just popped into my head. I think we can all identify with feeling like we've been stabbed in the back at certain points in our lives. I pushed myself with this one to try & create the emotion of the girl not just in her expression, but with her whole body kinda slumping over. Even her hair is hanging down listless.

Plus it was a trial of my new 0.5mm mechanical pencil, which allows me to get really fine linework and details.

She'll be coloured up & finished soon..
