Looking good Ridge, it really has the retro feel to it...first post over here. One crit i have is i think her hand is a bit small.

Justin Ridge said...

Eren said...

Ooh yes this does have that retro feel to it! I'm guessing this would be an ad for hair products? Hehehee...very nice work Mr. Ridge!

Wayne said...

ooh la la indeed!!!

Mike Williams said...

I think you definitely nailed the 50's appeal. Beautiful

Scott Tolleson said...

Looking very retro. For me, the shape of the eyes along with the hair style really make it read as a 50's piece. Would this be considered porn in the 50's? Great piece Justin.

Awesome drawing and awesome blog!

Francisco said...

Niiice! The lines are very fluid and natural. I love this vintage style.

Mac McCool said...

Jenny said...

You've got this style down cold.; love your line and the flow & grace of your women--not easy!

Justin Ridge said...

Thanks for the kind words everybody!

Wayne- she's secretly thinking of you! (but don't tell Eren!)

Scott- I'm not sure...green WAS a pretty racy color to be wearing back then!

Jenny- Thanks! It's a lot of fun looking at the actual ad styles of the 50's and seeing how they inked their lines and added textural touches. Gotta keep practicing...!
