Pin Up illustration

An exercise in taking a photo and giving it the 50's pin up girl painting treatment. the photo is treated heavily in Photoshop and then overpainted in Painter. I changed the face in all but pose. The tyre prop is the crappy bit - I was going to paint over it - need something else there not competing with her so much for attention.

How about adding another good~looking girl adjacent; that way you would have no need for a crap tyre!! What do you want? OVERKILL! Or more eye-catching!
Hey Olly Long Time~No See!!!!!!! I really hope you&your family all are well &Congratulations on your son! Amy told me. I’m glad your life is good. I mean it. It seems like years since we were in secondary together &I loved sitting with you in Mrs Watson’s Art class (copying!!)
Kindest Wishes Ruth X
