The whole purpose of this piece was to study some new thoughts I had on digital underpainting techniques. I am continually striving to try and make my digital work look and feel as natural as possible. I had though the the traditional underpainting process would be an important part of that puzzle. I also wanted the underpainting to help me with some of my lighting concerns in my work. Working on pinups often means that my method of rendering light become rather formulaic and I wanted to change that.
