Elvgren Studies

I am embarking on some pinup oil paintings and thought a good begining would be to do some studies of the master of Pinnup art: Mr. Gill Elevgren. The first 2 are digital studies and the 3rd was done with good old fashioned oil painting.

Nicely done! Like the second one best, you've captured the tone + colours really well.

Very nice!

How hard would it be for you to do a pinup in the style of Old Shanghai advertising?

Really nice, Jake! Love the first two especially. They've got that rich, pinup feel.

I've spent an awful long time looking at that second Elvgren original(no, its because I love the lighting so much), and yours is amazingly close!
