Lovely figure.

Of course we saw most of it in "BODDY ELECTRIC" (Sep. 10), and I suspect this is the same model used for "TEMPLE of APOLINOPOLIS" (Sep. 3) and "DARK SUN" (Oct. 1).


I still think it's from the 'hot tub' series. John denies it, but ya can't trust guys who have done hard time.


There are certain poses i like and i tend to try to use them in different settings. It's fascinating to me - discovering nuances in repetitive work. Good eye.


I'm still amazed at what you accomplish with differing shades of grey. How do you get the hair to, well, "look like hair". It has body and texture, it's not just a darker spot in the composition.


Elfen magic.

Actually, it's just a matter of paying attention to details and trying establish a certain rhytm to the charcoal strokes that mimic hair texture the best.
