Wasn't sure where to put this post - Undersea or Mythology - but played safe with 'Illustration'. Mocked-up cover for an obscure pulp magaszine. Thanks for looking. Credits include Faveral's Diving Helmet, Daz's V3 and Poserworld's LabTech Suit.

Another classic, but topless nudity in 1957, surely it would have been more implied than shown?

Top marks as always.

Mark brings up an interesting point as to your "mission" doing these covers. Your style is dictated by history given that if you want to evoke the era you have to work within the confines of what it was.
However, there is nothing to say that liberties aren't there for the taking. When suited a juxtaposition of a golden age style within a 21st Century context.

In this case, Mark's right, most of the art I've seen would have covered her up with the downstage arm. The model looks like she might be holding her breath, something an air-breathing model might have to do for an underwater shoot but not a bona-fide mermaid. All just food for thought.

You've really got your style down and always love to see what you've come up with.

I wouldn't have noticed about the topless model, just shows how much has changed and people are getting away with. Another superb cover art, although I feel the diver is going to be dissapointed sooner or later ;,)

Yep, not crazy about the nakedness, but have to say a stunning cover nonetheless! Color and compositionally, it's truly one of your best!

Thanks for the encouraging comments - and yes, this one does deserve a repost! Lets try Mark's idea!

While pulps and paperbacks were full of nudes, the lovely ladies' displays were always covered by covered by conveniently flowing hair, raised arms, or in improbably flowing bits of ribbon. So your decision to re-position the arm as seen in the second image was appropriate.

How do you get the scuffed look round the edges of the image?
