Tank Girl

Published March 22nd, 2014

Here is another one of those projects that just took way too long. Though, kinda my fault for letting it sit on the shelf for like 6 weeks and not touching it. Earlier this week, Janey asked me how the retouching was going and that kicked me back into gear to get it done.

The shoot part of this was pretty easy. We did a handful of poses that we referenced from a "tank girl" google image search. However, this shot was an idea Id had long ago and decided to tankgirlify the idea and add it to the list of shots to take. So I do intend to do the work on at least one or two more of the tank girl ideas, but I decided to do this one first since it was my own.

I hope to eventually do at least 1 or 2 more of the Tank Girl images. I know at least 1 other one will require a complete new set, so its daunting and it will take time and that makes it hard to get rolling on it, but Ill get it done...... eventually.

As always, thanks to Janey for being a better, less flakey model than most models ...

First off, its good to have some time to sit down and do some good ol' photochopping again. Lots of day work and summer projects around the house kept me busy.

This shot was taken in August... i think it was the hottest day we'd had yet. I remember setting up the camera and lights, sweating all over the place in the garage, thinking 'the model will not be happy in THIS heat'. But it was all ok.

We got a few shots done. 2 of them are already in my gallery. This was the main "idea"; the reason we got together to shoot. So, its a shame I sat on it for so long before getting down to it. I did some quick edits on it right off the bat to get it set up. All of my combines and some basic masking. I think i spent a few hours working on the bike tire too, but after that I didnt touch the file till yesterday.

So yes, defin ...
