Anatomy of a pin-up Part 1

Every year the Indy webcomics group puts on the Comix Rock Art & Music Showcase. With it we do a mini comic that is available only at the show and features characters based around the girls from Creme de les Femme burlesque. This year I was in charge of writing and designing the characters. Since the headliner of this years show is the concept band, Five Year Mission (they make songs based on episodes of Star Trek) we had a theme of science fiction and Star Trek.
Creme de les Femme do a Dr. Sketchy show before the bands start and the girls who participate get a pinup of themselves in character in the back of the comic. I figured I'd do this post and show some of the process I went through to get it done. I found it particularly challenging because I wasn't all that comfortable drawing metal and then had to make it into a likeness also. I assure you there are plenty more drawings and things I could have posted but to show you everything would take forever. So I hope you enjoy.
P.S. I designed and screenprinted the poster for the show too. Some variants are up for auction at the show on July 9th too. I plan on doing some post about that process too.
