I finished drawing and colouring the first of the final pieces. Mama Mayhem, the super hero mom!
A re-cap of the events: I put out a craigslist ad for the first time, and a couple answered me.
She wanted to be drawn, and He was there to give permission. We met for sushi and sketchbook browsing and chatting.
We got along right away, and set up a date! They came over the next weekend, she got naked and i started drawing.
I Made sketches of 2 different poses, and this was the result of the first pose!
Afterward He gave She and myself permission to "play around" a bit, and even though that's not a requirement of my live models, i have to say it did make me more solidly interested in finishing the piece. It helped getting to know her body that much more closely....
We had plans for further drawings. She promised to help promote my work and become a muse/agent sorta person. But then they went away on a trip.
When they came back she was suddenly cold and unexpectedly critical and judgemental. Our plans kept getting put off while we clashed for silly reasons. We are no longer on speaking terms. And i and left feeling kinda used. Oh well. Every piece has its story!
The idea for the costume was mostly by His suggestion, at least the "top", or "Under-breast M thing" haha. But i came up with the boots and cape and head-band. And her favourite colour is red, and she's a mom.
The scan washes out most of the colour from the face and arms, but otherwise think it looks ok.
