Elvgren Reimagined No Filters by HoiHoiSan Elvgren Reimagined No Filters by HoiHoiSan
Model: [link]

The model and I decided to try and recreate an Elvgren pinup as accurately as possible with only bodypaint. This is the version without the photoshop filters. :)

I plan to do a couple more like this :)

The image was based on Elvgren's "Sitting Pretty"

I imagine the inspiration for this was Bettie Page, the '50's pinup. Your recreation is very true to that, although Bettie brought something more to her modeling work than your model, who is very attractive.
