How Pin Ups Are Made
This blog really needs some more pin ups! I love pin up art and don't understand why there's such a lack of it in my little bloggywogg. So, here we go! Painted pin ups are always so stylized. No woman really has a body like that - except for Elegy Ellem...With their loooooooong legs, tiny waists, big boobs, and full lips they are the women men dream about having, and women dream about looking like - at least if you're into the old fashioned look...While looking at the perfect finished result of these paintings, I love taking a peek behind the scenes, to see what the artist had in front of his eyes while drawing the pin up. I found some really nice "before" and "after" pictures at "La Boite Verte", from where all the following pictures, by pin up artist Gil Elvgren, come. Enjoy!
