Aphrodite

Title: Aphrodite: The Ultimate Bombshell in Green!
Year: 2011
Medium: Original in Colored Pencil, inked and colored in Photoshop
Size: 11″ x 17″
Notes: I designed Aphrodite in Bruce Timm’s style after being inspired by his sensual pinups.  Notice the curves, her posture and gestures, the translucent gown, and the emphasis on her eyes.  Side note: I designed the Athena and Aphrodite characters at the same time and included subtle but clear differences between them that makes one voluptuous and the other a warrior.

I decided to try a different color scheme and this is the result.  I created this turquoise-blue color scheme based on the triad rule.  It brings out her eyes more and makes me think of life and her vibrancy.
