Smile Great Halloween.

WOW, very very very great work, it is really an amazing image. This image is delightful, sexy, charming, cute, realistic, is....alive.

The concept art, idea, details, colors, the witch's expression. I hope to see your images in Exposé/Ballistic books.

I know your work since when you used to work with children illustrations and every new image you do is better than the one before. You are a very versatile artist and your style is "clean", you have already worked as concept artist, caricaturist, painter, illustrator, 2D animator, instructor/teacher, matte painter, anything missing, rsrsrsrsrsrs, so if possible, i would like to make a suggestion for next images: what about some caricature and some samples from each work you did?

Five stars from me.

Lindo trabalho, Cris.
Eu só não gostei muito do fundo atrás da sua pinup, que parece que faz referência às ilustrações Art Nouveau do Mucha. Achei um pouco "anti-natural".

Ah, e parabéns pelo destaque na home da CGTalk!

It’s no longer “What’s your major?" that you’ll get asked everyday, but “What do you do for a living?” That is the true question!

Smile Things that make a good pinup?

Hi Dave:
I would like to "contribute" with this question, if possible. My particular oppinion about what makes a good pinup is wide..... many things are important in a pinup, but one is essencial: LIFE.

The imagem needs to be alive, people see it and feel that appeal. This can be achieved with body and facial expressions too. The concept is another very important thing, to create a situation where people can find (hidden) details ou figure out some idea. This depends on the artist, in my oppinion, put details, enriches the pinup and every time you look at it you will notice something you haven't noticed before.

Cris pinups have lots of these details and a very good conceptions for me. She has a strong influence from the "pinup masters" like Gil Elvgren, Alphonse Mucha, Norman Rockwell, FrankFrazetta, Boris Valejo and also some other (monsters) artists from classical school.
We can see in her pinups backgrounds, patterns with Mucha's influence and in my oppinion this is fabulous and I am very surprised by her versatility doing great pieces in differente styles.

It is also noticeable that there are different pinups styles, for instance, the classical ones, as said above, where anatomy, expressions, concept, colors (pastel tones), backgrounds, details, realism, etc, are always present and there are the "new pinup style" like mangas, comic book and video game's characters with some "exaggerated" anatomy, highlighted colors, fighting/dynamics attitudes, hot girls, etc. but also very well done.

Well, I will try to finish my thoughts. To make a good pinup is necessary:
1) concept art, idea, good composition (elements inside the image)
2) good anatomy's knowledge, body and facial expression
3) good choise of colors, lights and shadows, good color rendering
4) good (funny) atmosphere, like something that cheer you up
5) knowledge and study about the other " master painters"

The last one (in my deep personal thinking): a good pinup has a beautiful, cute, gorgeous, charming, little sexy (or hot, not pornographic), pretty girl.

Regards for all of you.
