I had wanted to make something patriotic for July 4. I knew I wanted to do a pinup with a firecracker and this was almost exactly what I originally thought I wanted to do. I am pretty sure I’ve already done someone with a variant of this hairdo – but it is what I want to do. Also, almost positive she will be a brunette. One thing I don’t know is what her name should be, want something super American.
Here is a series of pictures of what I was able to complete today. As you can see from the status drawings – there was some redrawing of some parts of the piece. This is the second top I made. The first version did not come together right, so I reworked the drawing and it started to make sense to me.
