Finally! After a brief hiatus without posting anything new, here I am with another finished artwork. A commissioned Disney Girls Pinup painting!
Simple idea really, a classic portrait painting but very colorful and stylish reminiscence from Disney's movies with a pinup appeal where all the girls are in lingerie or something similar but within a classical portrait depiction.
I've been developing it for months, from each individual girl to the layout sketches and painting. A few hours per week and here is the result. It was quite laborious to paint, I tried to go deep into the details as well as work well volumes to give it a realistic but charming render in the best way possible. I tried to keep the style of each of the girls designs but adding an extra personal touch.
The composition proved to be a challenge as all of the girls are important figures. Anyway, I decided to arrange them in a pyramid where Tinkerbell is at the top although technically she's not a princess but she's the symbol of Disney itself. She's followed by the two classical princesses. Undoubtedly Cinderella and Snow White proved to be quite difficult as both have an older design, so I had to work quite a while to give them a more updated sex appeal. Ariel looked like it would be complicated to set a nice pose, but in the end she was easiest of them all.
A very nice painting, quite possibly the most complex personal artwork I've ever worked on, but I'm quite pleased with the result!
