Bettie Page

That Pin-up sensation that shocked the nation during the 1950’s

The reference used for this particular drawing I found browsing on deviantART – artist:  Shishah  http://browse.deviantart.com/art/Bettie-Page-3897657

Instead of trying to duplicate the very beautiful black and white image that Shishah created I changed it all to red for the word ‘redhead’.

I used a dark red pen and colored her gloves using a black and red highlighter.  For the background I added misty black and red watercolors giving you hopefully a feeling that you have slipped into an erotic dream.  Then I couldn’t help myself but to use the red glitter pen for some finishing touches… Every girl likes a bit of glitter.

Bettie has been an inspiration to me and to many people for decades and I am certain she will continue to do so.  Being very retro inspired myself I could draw her a thousand times over.

Drawings dedicated to Pin-ups (Cheesecakes & Beefcake) has now been added to my Facebook Group ‘Open Draws’ I know we have a few fans dedicated to Pin-ups within the group so do take a look at some other albums if stopping by and so far the contributions that have been added to this album are from myself and the wonderful Erin Bochan.
