WOW, it is almost summer time in Canada, Welland. And it is hot, around 28 Celsius up to 31 Celsius. I was thinking about Brazil, especially about .
Rio de Janeiro, beautiful beaches, friendly and beautiful people, always happy though a lot of problems as any big cities.
Ipanema's Beach The Girl from Ipanema like in the song...
Tall and tan and young and lovely
The girl from Ipanema goes walking
And when she passes, each one she passes goes "a-a-ah!"

Girl from Ipanema is one of the most well known Bossa Nova music, writen by two wonderful and talented musicians, Tom Jobim and Vinícius de Morais.
Frank Sinatra also sang this song very well (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pvwr3OrexkY)
and he also sang it with Antonio Carlos Jobim (Tom Jobim) in 1964 see at this link (http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8422056182332886888#)
Yes, my friends, it is an old song but what is good never expires.
Well I have done the sketch some months ago, and I was excited about doing and finishing the digital painting. This time, like I did in the tough choice pinup I changed a little my painting style.
I also uploaded some images, like a step by step while I was painting it:
I used Illustrator after scanning the pencil sketch (to make some adjustments) and Photoshop to paint it.
I would like to tell you that I will be teaching Digital Painting (my onw course and method) trhough Internet or doing private tutoring sessions for people that wants to improve the skills on digital painting.
For more information please contact me.
I am looking to see your comments.
Thank you all.
