Pamela Bouguereau by PapaNinja Pamela Bouguereau by PapaNinja
This one will be hard to explain ^^

I was very impressed by the last work of Eric Tranchefeux on Rembrandt.
As I was trying a new palete of skin tones inspired by William Bouguereau, I decided to make a feminine version of his autoportrait (yes, I know, I'm dispairing ^^).
So I had transformed this poor William in a mature bimbo (I'm a pin up drawer after all :D).

I've got no excuse ...

Print available here : [link]

Made with photoshop.
You can see some chaotic steps on my website.

Hope you'll like it.

I love this! It's odd, but very striking. The color palette is fantastic.

BigBad Bill is Sweet Christy (Hefner), now.
Power, painting, photography; pedestals and empires built on the shifting quicksands of trends in media -- go figure.

I don't know if you want critiques, but her breasts look strange - as if she only has one - maybe she does.
The hair and the furry ears are amazing. Looks photographic!
