... some like it hot

... i spent time this past weekend trying desperately to find certain sketches and/or finished pieces that i want so badly to recreate using new mediums. my searches resulted in this piece, as well as a few male character studies that i will also work on so i can post them as well. this beauty was a sight to behold. grace, beauty, and so graceful in her poses. she fascinated me because she truly seemed shy, blissfully unaware of her stunning beauty that made jaws drop and filled the room with the magic of silence. i can still hear the pencils, conte, charcoal and more brush across the mixed surfaces of canvas, newsprint and archival stock...

the complete rennovation of this piece was mainly an experiment. fun to smooth all lines and such with filters, adding vibrant color, changing the pitch of her "curve" and introducing a new light source after the fact to create some stunning dips and valleys. the smoke and/or fire (depending on how you see it) is for the simple reason. she is hot.

You do beautiful work. Some hacks would have ruined it completely.

The gentle curves and the wonderful use of color and shading are fan-flipping-tastic.

Thanks for sharing.
