I just tried to put quick volumes on an anime character.
I worked with more soft lights than usual.

Alexandra Potter and tentacle

Here's a picture of the lovely Alexandra Potter (the great specialist of ballet shoes).
I've been very influenced by :
- George Petty : For the cartoon shapes and the pose.
- Hubert de Lartigue (http://www.hubertdelartigue.com/) : For the tones and the soft light.
The "I-tentacle" was very boring to do ...

A quick (well, quick for me, about 8 hrs) picture I have to do for my future artbook.
I don't have a specific model for this one, I did a "mix" beetween 3 lovely ladies :
- Scarlett River :  http://www.modelmayhem.com/1414056 
- Dayna Delux :  http://www.daynadelux.com/
I think I will try to do a more cartoon version of Suzanne soon ...
