That captures that 50s style quite brilliantly. ;)

 

The profile views may be easy on the artistic requirements, but the hands are extremely difficult to get right even in that view. If you clean up, get your guy to do some ref shots together. B)

 

 

I don't usually repost, but today... I do. :mellow:

 

Actually - to me the style in game is more 1940s than 50s.  When you think about 50s you get those stupid drive-ins and poodle skirts and grown women running around looking like little girls.  No thank you.  The 40s had style, they had tailoring and it's just distinct and awesome.

Magnus definitely mid to late fifties in hairstyle and clothing and Etta hair style 1940's, clothing mix of late forties and mid to late fifties. Why I say this, is, because I am old enough to remember the entire 1950's. I don't remember any women running around looking like little girls and the only ones I remember wearing poodle skirts were girls(there may have been some adult women wearing them but it would have been pretty uncommon). I have nothing against drive-ins, cool is the only word I can think of concerning them. Like any period of time, styles are constantly changing and getting snippets from old photos, movies and TV shows can only give you an idea of what it was like back then - not incorrect but not a full enough picture.

I think I really just don't like iconic 50s style at all.  That's the problem.  It didn't look bad on Magnus but for women I didn't care for it, or those little scalloped collars you'd see on I Love Lucy.  I just don't like the overall style of that period, with pearls and everything.  I also do understand your point about styles blending but...you get certain iconic impressions, like in the 80s with the shoulder pads (which I also didn't like)

From a iconic viewpoint I am more in agreement with you - I actually prefer the clothing style's of the latter half of the1930's and of the '40's over most of the styles since that time.

 

Magnus has a style that was known as greaser. The word used in this way usually carried a note of condescension. Most people whether they were young adults or teenagers still in school did not wear this style. The greaser style became iconic along with that new fangled music, rock & roll,  because of what it stood for - trouble and youthful rebellion.

More Moleskine watercolor stuff?! Oh I am so down with that!

 

The black ink holds up well, what are you using?

This one is not Moleskine, it's a rather cheap imitation bought in a Portuguese supermarket. I do use Moleskines as well though.

The black ink is from a uniball UM120 gel pen, I love these pens.

So do you lay down the color and then pen over it once it's dry? I've been experimenting with this one myself and none of my pens, short of a basic ballpoint, hold up once Watercolor gets involved. 

 

Also, I really really like that! :D

No, the other way around. Sometimes pencil first if I want to lay out the basic shapes (sometimes I don't feel comfortable starting with pen...), then pen, then watercolours. Though this time I added the text on the base of the Memorial after painting (I had forgotten to write it first).

I need that gel pen, then.  :blink: All of mine either completely distort the colors or run like a mess the second watercolor touches them. Huh.

The only problem I have with the pen is that there used to be two models, the 0.5mm and the 0.7mm. 0.7 is too thick for me, but 0.5 is perfect. Unfortunately I am not able to find 0.5 anymore - I suspect they stopped producing it and only have 0.7 now. I still have one, but it's the last one.

 

I need to try out some of their other models. There is a Uniball UM100 which is 0.5, it may be more or less the same...

Yup, that was why I asked. Ink first, watercolor afterwards. ;)

Regular Bic ballpoints tend to be good as well. But I prefer gel pens - much more comfortable :)

That's what I usually do, it just usually runs, which is why I was surprised. Especially my gel pens.

Got enough requests for a pin, so it's been pinned. 

 

I'll have a thing (maybe even things...I'm working on two...) to post here, Soon™. ;) Been too damned busy to finish either of them.
