Oh man I just found this, I wish I had seen this sooner. This made my DAY dude. I work in comics (writer I am not guilty of drawing the "Sexy") and tend to try to hide my giggles when looking at "sexy" women. Also prow you draw some sexy sexy tutorials.
Great tutorial! Should be required reading for anyone planning to post anything "sexy" on DA. LOL!
I've drawn a crap load of pin-up girls in my lifetime and have always tried to give them have that confidence as you have so eloquently put it. I never resort to "f'k me faces", gratuitous nudity or those awful contortionist poses that supposedly make women more attractive to look at... *massive eye roll* And my girls are never shown as "victims"... that is so important to me. Being a sexy woman does not equal being stupid, submissive or always in need of saving. My damsels can save themselves!
So yeah... its great to see all the things I strive for in my Pin-Up art put into such a great presentation! And of course... all the sexy butts.
You know, I draw a lot of hefty, even downright fat people, often going out of my way to make them unattractive (I am weird) and I have always been lightly confused as to why people found them sexy. This has outlined it very nicely. Thank you.
