PINUP GARAGE KIT
Very often the garage kits models reproduced humans or living creatures and monsters from scientific-fiction, fantasy or horror movies, Characters from TV series and comic BOOKS.
From the 60’s up to the 80’s in USA, like in Japan, most of the garage kit were reproduction of monster and characters of TV series, Movies or Comic Books.
Nowadays we have action figures so nice and realistic, (Include in the list, characters from games), that If I had enough money I would buy lots of them.
Anyways, the cool thing about garage kits is that you as a hobbyist, assemble your garage kit, I mean, when you buy one, it comes in pieces and you assemble it, And the best part is when after assembled, you can paint it. That is awesome, because painting such small parts are really challenging but makes us happy with the result.
However the great thing in garage Kit, from my point of view is the anime female characters. Lot of them are very sexy and actually are real pinups.
So, why not doing our own pinup garage kit?
The pinup is not a realistic person, although the painting is realistic, the character is a cartoon or comic style.
This pinup is like a joke, we did it on purpose to look like that, like a resin material, hand made by a hobbyist. It is not a 3D modeling, just a 2D image from our own garage kit.
By saying that is perfect understandable that in some parts of the image, the painting is not precise in some details because it is supposed to be done by hobbyist.
This piece is for my private gallery and a pleasant joke. Another reason is to show how one image can be painted in different styles.
I used Photoshop and the painting itself took more time I expected because I did it in my spare time between projects. The pencil drawing was changed sometimes.
I hope you like it and comments are more than welcome.
