Bettie Page Tribute by PatrickFinch Bettie Page Tribute by PatrickFinch
If you know me, I'm a huge fan of pin-ups. The day after the loss of Bettie Page I picked up my sketch book and did a few sketches of the legend. This one happened to be my favorite. It was based on one of the more popular shots of Bettie on the beach.

The sketch is from my 2009 sketchbook, but I liked it so much that I decided to toss it into illustrator and give the lady some color.

Bettie Page Tribute by *1nch "A classic pinup and excellent clean vector work mixes together to make an unforgettable illustration. I particularly like the linework that shows us thick and thin lines, not uniform, completely stylized, and very cool." ( Suggested by rjonesdesign and Featured by Ikue )

Maybe it's because she doesn't look too much like Bettie.

I'm all for a good critique, and I love to get advice to make me a better artist. The foot I knew about the before when a friend pointed it out. Me being lazy, didn't fix after I was shown the light. Then, It just got tossed into the spotlight so fast that I really wasn't expecting it
