Illustration Friday "HIDE"
This week's theme at Illustration Friday is "hide". My submission for this week may need to do a little 'splaining. See, at one time she had two arms. But compositionally it was better that she had one arm. I thought it better that she "hide" the other for just a bit- for safe keeping - or for when it can be better utilized.

Goth Girl

This girl was actually inspired by Manko, one of the Suicide Girls. (She has blue hair on her My Space page.) I have never sought out other people as muses . . . Well strangers actually. I do it for clients and friends quite a bit. But never artistically stalked anyone. This is a first.

Anyway, if you like the print, she can be found here: Goth Girl

Ah ha! I see your logic with "hide". I love the way her body sweeps across the page, so dynamic.

Thanks for your comments on my blog by the way! I wish you all the best too.

i agree that putting her other arm in to hiding was the right move here. lov the sweep of curvs here
