As an anniversary gift (#17) wanted to recreate my wife's likeness / face / picture in the style of an Alebrto Vargas (famous pinup artist) illustration. I wanted to commission 3 drawings, maybe 2 poses and 1 closer face portrait. I will provide photos of my wife and some select Vargas drawings for pose / inspiration to go along with each. Vargas technique I believe was to do underpainting with paint brush first, and, then airbrushed color overtop in a glazing technique. Apparently even though in watercolor, he was able to achieve this because the sprayed color did not disturb delicate underpainting, which remined untouched during color application.
Although if overall look or result can be achieved with other approach it is fine by be me as well. I was thinking 16in x 14in as size of each illustration.
If you have an example of your work that is similar as possible, i.e. example of illustration that is close in style, female form, face, etc. that would be helpful in making decision.
