Bettie  Page – 19-05-18

I found this great early picture of a young Bettie Page posing before her pin-up days of fame. Like all previous reference pictures this one shows great lighting from two sides, creating lovely core shadows on the body. I tried to combine my personal roundism style with some surrealism. In the negative space around her body I made some curves echoing her curves like a continuous wave.
