Memorial Day is the official start of summer, so I hear. It’s June and the weather is finally getting warmer – except for the typical summer fog pattern we in the Bay Area are all too familiar with. Here’s a Pin Up piece I did to commemorate the past holiday weekend, done in the spirit/style of classic Pin Up Art during war times past.
Thought I’d share my digital painting process here as well, for those interested. Starting off with a digital sketch, in photoshop I worked out the gray-scale values first and then added color layers with color modes set to ‘overlay’ and ‘color’ to achieve the final look.
So, here’s to glorious summer months ahead and to the service men and women whom have lost their lives in wars past and present.
All the best,
