W.I.P. . . ("The Boxing Brunette") UPDATE: FINISHED!
This one's big--14" x 17". A commission from A.P.E. Now I have to color it. Oy, vey!
Obviously I'm trying to channel those great Playboy-type artists. I say "Playboy-type" 'cuz when the fella who wants this described his idea of a gorgeous brunette astride her vanquished adversaries in a boxing ring, my first thought was of "Wicked Wanda" from the 70's era Penthouse mag...which then prompted me to do a search of same.
Dang! That's one amazingly gorgeous "strip" (*ahem*)!
Said the artist's name is Ron Embleton--a name I'd never heard before. I remember these from my dad's stash o' flesh mags, hadn't seen her since maybe '83?? What an indelible mark she made on my young mind!
Anyone shopping for me for Xmas, you are welcome to locate a collected volume of these and send it my way.
p.s. Is this too dirty for this site? Guy begged for topless--and who am I to censor the human form???
UPDATE: started coloring last night...felt tip marker, as per usual: (ADDED ANOTHER--it's funny--they just keep coming out looking like old Playboy illustrations--I'm not trying to copy them, I swear!)
