Okay wait, wait!!!
Before you FREAK OUT... Keep in mind this post is full of hyperbole and exaggeration. Also, know that I don't mean to imply that anyone is or is not built "curvy enough" or anything like that. In fact, I don't mean to imply that my or "everyone else's" viewpoint is more valid than the other. It's just different perceptions of the word and world.
And, also, I know that not EVERYONE ELSE actual thinks this way. Like I said, hyperbole and exaggeration. It's what makes comics funny.
But, my disclaimer now read, I truly have noticed that when people are describing to me a "curvy" girl I'm picturing something close to my depiction on the left above... only to have them show me a gal that more closely resembles the figure on the right. It's always rather a shock to see a very average to thin sized lady when I'm EXPECTING a remarkably voluptuous girl.
But, that's perception, for ya!
I doodled these ladies on my flight to SanFran. Did something a little different with my coloring this time, too. Just fooling around and having fun.
The XO Ball was WILD. I work alot of adult shows and they're usually fairly tame (in my opinion.) No nudity, no sex, no alcohol etc.
But this one, oh my... There was nudity, there was liquor and there was lots of unsolicited groping... I actually had to slap a guy who tried to grab my pussy while I was posing for a photo with him. What the fuck!
But, despite people getting a little out of hand I had a good time and made some friends. Plus, I was quite popular. I'd go again. :)
I've noticed I'm having some trouble juggling time between NB and time to dedicate to my more serious works, like my paintings. It's really frustrating as I would like to see progression with both but the paintings are MUCH more time consuming... This is what I've been working on lately:
She's a very large wooden cut-out. I have several more waiting to be painted. I want badly to get these finished so that I can begin showing my more serious work in galleries. I wish I could find a compromise between my free time spent on NB and my free time spent painting... yargh.
