angles and alignment in illustrations of the human form, and I wanted to
try and create a pinup full of these things, inviting the eye to
It was a challenge, as I forcibly restricted myself
to just 4 angles, and tried to make as many things as possible echo and
align with other shapes across the figure.
I chose a photo of the model Marie Devilreux
as a starting inspiration, and ended up with a homage to the Bettie
Page style retro pinup look. I did it entirely in 3Ds Max with flat,
layered polygon shapes.
Special thanks to Maria Picassó - Illustration for her inspiring great work and advice!
