Milky-Way Mixup: Cover by HeartGear Milky-Way Mixup: Cover by HeartGear

This should give the flavor of what's going to happen. ^_^; Do you think it deserves the Mature Content label?

Those old pinups had a lot going for them. Everyone from the Coca-Cola girls to 1950s centerfolds showcase immense talent. Seriously! They're compositionally sound, well-rendered drawings, with gratuitous amounts of appeal (and not just the sexy kind either). While I can't claim to have approached the level of skill, I hope to capture some of the playful essence of the old pieces.

Most Centerfolds look happy or humorously surprised. The position above is playful and fun, but the expression is not. The idea of this short is something like "A girl who is turned into a pinup against her will"... sort of. Not literally. But sort of. Either way, I enjoyed working on a piece that contradicted body language and facial expression.

Well...
Page 1-2 coming this Friday ^^
Thanks for stopping by!

~Gear

P.S. This is the most skin you'll see in my comic. Sorry to disappoint ^^; or set your heart at ease, whichever.

I'm not sure it deserves the Mature label in its present form... but like where it's going. I live in hope that one day you'll do Noah as a pinup as well...Great work, as always!

I'd consider NoahMaid a pinup (kinda), but maybe I will do one in the old style.

Another great thing of old-time pinups was that they showed very little! Yet still oozed sexy.

So it begins.

...

Thank you for adding the straps. They look good :) Something I didn't realize before: I can't see the phone against that starry backdrop. I don't think anyone is having a hard time reading that it IS a phone, but you might try a thin white outline just for Ss & Gs.

Wow, classic 40s style pinup but the saucer is very 50s looking. Combined they work perfectly together.

I'm not sure whether a space suit or a trench-coat and fedora is more appropriate. In either case this strikes me as space Dick Tracey. In either case, what a dame!

Skirt, in the spirit of the Vegas showgirl meets chiffon.

I always felt that the pin-ups had a "Oops, you aren't supposed to see me like this" expression. Amused but slightly embarrassed.

Speakng from first hand experience (growing up in the 1950s) you have most definitely captured the essence of the era. Sexy without being over the top, suggestive without being vulgar.

Well done!

I really really loved this piece.. The colors, the background, the concept. The lineart.
Mmmm.. I'm enjoying it extra much cause of the song it made me think of: [link]
Really good work (:

LOVE THAT SONG. I've got the vinyl, I do.
How funny, we discussed the title for a long time. I'm afraid I may have unintentionally inspired my love!

Doubtful it needs the mature label, but it's certainly cute!

Considering that television has ads where models show more skin, and the fact that no "naughty bits" are showing, I'd say it's probably not necessary to worry about flagging it as mature.
