New Pic - "Malibu"

A typically unseasonal submission from me!

No apologies guys, I just never could get up enough seasonal spirit to draw girls in santa outfits etc. So bikini's are in full flow all year round in this dojo.

That long flowing hair took ages, but I think it was worth the work. I've also been concentrating more on the facial features after spending some time in anime land. I'm having fun just getting back to drawing more realistic (yet sexy) faces.

More to come soon, including a new Betty Page tribute piccy. All this time off means I'm drawing more than ever!!

New Pic - "Got Wood?"

Well after a time of drawing nothing but big-eyed anime style girls, I thought I'd get back to drawing in my regular pin-up style.

I've always been a sucker for a girl with a baseball bat. Well, as long as she doesn't hit me with it!

New Pic - "Blossom"

My latest creation! The cuter I make them, the faster I seem to be heading into Loli territory!!

Not sure where I got the idea for the flower from, but I think it works well with the girl. Both are "flowering" in different ways :-)

Anyways enjoy..

New Pic - "Cherry Pippin"

My cutest gal yet? I'll leave you to decide..

I simply had to allow her to get her boobies out. She protested, screamed, held her breath and jumped up & down, begging to release her blossoming fun bags from her cotton t-shirt.

In the end I gave in and allowed her to lift up her shirt, but only if she posed & smiled sweetly.

She's such a show off!!

New Pic - "Z-Girl"

This was a commissioned piece for a fellow member of deviantART, of his character Z-Girl, a rather reluctant, slacker-type superhero. He requested my anime style for this one (which I'm still perfecting) but I think she turned out rather well.

Btw she's not supposed to look particularly happy, she's probably kinda fed up with having to rescue all those cats from trees!

If you'd like a commissioned piece then head on over to my deviantART page for all the info.

New Pic - "Reflections"

Just playing around, pushing myself in new directions, changing my style a little.

Been looking at a lot of japanese pin-up work recently & watching a lot of anime for reference. I want to get this style down so I can do a little of this & my usual styled work.

I must say I'm having a blast with these at the moment, as it feels like I'm evolving my style & growing with each picture.

This feels really different from my usual girls though, I feel like my feminine side is taking over (oh noes)!!

New Pic - "Green Radiance"

This is the first of my paid commission requests, that I'm taking via my Deviantart account

Requested by =sodacan based on his character Green Radiance.

I kinda threw myself in at the deep end with this one by (shock-horror) actually adding a background. Now, if you've looked through my gallery you'll realise I don't usually do backgrounds for my pin-ups. So of course for my first attempt I choose to do the most complicated backdrop I could possibly do!

Those buildings were a killer, both to ink & colour, but I think the end result is worth it. There's a whole boatload of perspective errors in there, but for a first attempt at a city backdrop it's not too shabby. I won't be drawing anymore buildings again for a while though!

Threw a painted sky in there to bring it all together.

New Pic - "Sayaka Yumi - Mazinger Z"

Sayaka Yumi from the giant robot anime/manga series Mazinger Z.

Trying to expand my style a little here, dipping my toe into the huge ocean of anime characters.

This is due to my recent obsession with Japanese model figures, which are a great cure for lack of inspiration. You end up drawing a lot of characters & outfits you'd never think of trying normally.

This one was based on the following figure;


It was actually a lot of fun to push myself & draw something a little different, so there may be more like this soon.

New Pic - "Stocking Filler"

Whoah.. two updates in one week!!

I actually finished the inks for this one a few weeks back. Just wanted to finish colouring her up so I could concentrate on my commission requests.

Trying to go for a classic style pin-up pose with this one. I wanted to finally nail the stockings as I've drawn them before but never felt I got them quite right. Found some great scans of lace designs on the net to help give the stocking tops a little design flourish.

Apparently you can't go far wrong with a cute topless/bottomless blonde in stockings, so I've been told.

New Pic - "Rollergirl"

This one was done for a fellow artist on Deviantart. I promised him a pin-up of his character Bee Bryant in a skater girl outfit way back sometime last year.. well here she is finally finished!

Overall I enjoyed this one. The details on the skates were a challenge and I had to change her a little from her cartoon appearance to fit in more with my style. But I think I managed to make her sexy enough!

This will be my last free commission btw as I'll be charging $30 a pop from from now on. If you wish to commission me then please check out my Deviantart page.

More to come shortly..

New Pic - "Massive Crush"

I've got a massive crush on you
And there's no limit to what I'll let you do
And when you speak to me well what can I say
With every whisper
You blow me away

The Barbs - Massive Crush

Thought I'd try a schoolgirl pin-up as it's one of the a typical pin-up outfits, and for some reason I'd never done one before.

As usual though I couldn't resist making off with her skirt, leaving her in those pink panties!

New Pic - "Punk Ass Bitch"

I would write loads about this, but I think three things sum this one up perfectly;

Green hair, fetish gear & a baseball bat..

What's not to love?

Pencil, Photoshop (for colour & digital inks)

New Pic - "Pinkie"

Well I'm back after a short little break, so guys let me introduce you to Pinkie.

I'm trying out a flatter more cartoon style of colouring/shading here. It probably looks like Illustrator, but everything from the lines to the colours were done in Photoshop.

Still trying to push myself forward, still trying to make the girls cuter and more appealing, still madly in love with sexy clean linework.

Many more to come soon.

New Pic - "Death - Final Colours"

Finished colours for my version of the character Death, as featured in "The Sandman" comic series, and "Death: The High Cost of Living" & "Death: The Time of Your Life".

I decided to go with a pale grey skintone for Death herself. Depending on the artist/portrayal, she appears to alternate between regular and pale skintones.

New Pic - "Death - Final Inks"

Based on the character of Death, as featured in "The Sandman" comic series, and "Death: The High Cost of Living" & "Death: The Time of Your Life".

I've wanted to draw this character for the LONGEST time, ever since reading the High Cost of Living books many years ago. If you haven't read them then do yourself a favour & go read them before the promised movie hits the screens!!

During the sketching stage I decided it would be cool if I could turn this into a figurine design, hence the base she's sitting on. I'd love to get into model making & sculpture but my current living arrangements don't allow me the space.

Colours to follow...

New Pic - "Megan - Final Inks"

This one turned out really well I think & I'm kinda pleased with it. Well, I should be after the amount of time I put into her!!

I was actively referencing a lot of 50's style pin-up artwork while I was drawing this one (Vargas, George Petty etc), and I really dig the coyness & perceived sexuality those kind of images have.

Drawing this one also reminded me just how much I love drawing pin-up girls in general.

Coloured version to follow soon..

New Pic - "Naked Vengeance"

Finished colours for my unapologetic bare-ass naked girl with a gun piccy.

I went for a flatter less glossy skin tone here. Thought about adding a tattoo as well, she looks like the type of girl who would have one.. but left it off in the end as I wanted to move on to something else.

New Pic - "Private Dancer - Final Inks"

"I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money
I'll do what you want me to do
I'm your private dancer, a dancer for money
And any old music will do..."

Hmmmmm.... Let's make this absolutely clear, this image bears absolutely no relation to the cheesy 80's Tina Turner song. I just needed a title, and she kinda looks like a lapdancer in that bikini & boots.

The hair on this one took forever, but it seems to add a little movement and flow to the image.

Final Colour version will be up shortly..

New Pic - "Naked Vengeance - Final Inks"

There's something about a naked girl with a gun that is very empowering.. or so I'm told :)

I was gonna add some hotpants or a bikini, but I think she looks much stronger in her birthday suit.

Her gun was based on a photo ref, but I did my own thing with it too. I mainly wanted it to look realistic, which meant using reference instead of just making it up out of my head.

Will be posting the finished colours up here soon..

New Pic - "Lolita - Final Colours"

Finished colours at last!!

Took about a week on & off to colour her up, but she's worth it ;)
