IF: Remember


Have you ever been transported back a few decades to a specific place by a smell or the quality of light? The smell of a grade school disenfectant, crayons, old wood...BAM I'm back in kindergarten in a split second. AZ's creosote bushes in the rain is just as powerful.

So the new job is making me lazy. First I have not participated in a while. Second, this is a composite of 4 pilfered images with a photoshop brush filter applied. The chick I drew. Found a site: www.posemaniacs.com that provided a skinned image that inspired me. Skinned as in- no flesh, all muscles and tendons depicted; sorta takes the lust element out of it. Site has a 30 second pose feature that limbers up the ole hand/eye coordination.
