Bettie Page – Playmate of the Day

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

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.

I used to draw all the time... then there was a very long gap till I acquired a Draw Something addiction that began in March 2012 which threw me into the world of digital drawing. I now mainly use a drawing app called Sketch Club and have recently created a website for a drawing game my friend and I have invented called Monkey Side Bars. Monkey Side Bars is a twice-a-week drawing game where you are challenged to a piece of art on a specific theme. Players take turns selecting the theme for each round. On the reveal date for each round, we co-ordinate a mass posting to Instagram simultaneously across the globe (see posting times and collages). Be sure to check your posting time. The game is open to all who wish to participate. We welcome all levels of skill from beginners to hobbyists to professionals. All you need is a creative mind, a sense of humor, and a willingness to try. You might have heard it through the ape vine… This game will have you hooked on the monkey bars. Like a monkey likes a banana… it has that appeal. Come monkey around with us and see what all the fuss is about.
