This is probably my last pin-up art of the year for 2011, so I wanted to do something special. Since the year of the dragon is coming up and i’m in kind of an Asian vibe, I couldn’t resist trying out the new Kumi model from PDesign. Amazing!

I’ve been spending a lot of time studying how Olivia De Berardinis does some of her pieces and so this pose was sort of a tip of the hat to her amazing work. This was rendered nude with just shoes and basic hair. The rest was post work and i’m really happy with how it came out. Here’s the before and after, in case you’re interested. I like looking at these some times just to see how other artists do their work.

I splurged on the Xmas sale on Renderosity and picked up a bunch of brushes, including these Wrinkle Brushes from mystikel
