Bombshell Bonny

For me, this project was the perfect excuse to research lady pirates. There was one in particular who intrigued me: Anne Bonny, a saucy American Irish pirate. Apparently, she had flaming red hair and was Calico Jack's girlfriend. I combined the pirate theme with a pin-up vibe. She sure knows how to work that booty (sorry, couldn't resist). Here goes!

I've been drawing a bunch of pin-up chicks lately. Which one will have the honor of becoming Bombshell Bonny?

Thanks to Matt, I learned so many helpful Photoshop tips that made it a lot easier to color (the "lock transparent pixels" button is a total gem). Here's the final(ish) colored version. I'll probably keep a-tweakin'. Thanks for a swell class!

So...yeah I kept a-tweakin'! I wasn't 100% satisfied with the proportions of her face, but I still loved the colors. So here's my second pass!
