Pascal commissioned me to create a “full body” pinup portrait transformation. The big challenge on this particular portrait was that she has so many different facets, and it’s quite difficult to make it all cohesive.
After getting to know her a bit more, the noticeable consistency was her passion for hot rods as she is a contributing member of The American Hot Rod Foundation, a professional Ballroom dancer, fitness fiend, sparkle lover, and vampire junkie. Hmmm, why not mash it all up?
I transformed her into a high end sparkly half-breed Hot Rod pinup vampire huntress… Say that fast 3 times.
I put a mini story together: Her mother bitten while pregnant, raised half-breed baby Pascal exposing the secrets of the Dark-Vamp overlords and trained to be a warrior / huntress saving the world from the “vampire apocalypse”.
- Her ride is equipped with a wooden bullet “Gatling” machine gun. For the exhaust and carbs, I used inspiration from “Herman & Grandpa’s” hot rods from the Munster’s TV show with ( multiple carbs and shooting upward exhaust pipes)
- I adorned her ears with a “stake and hammer” earrings.
- Her bandana textile is a bat pattern rather than normal paisley patterns.
-To express her fitness and dance, I studied Pinup fitness master George Petty, elongated her legs
and gave her sheer body suit reveals her sexy abdominals.
- Just like her bandana, I also created a diamond encrusted bat repeat pattern.
-Organic blood splatter flame on car.
-Bite me” written on bumper.
-Body count on hotrod.
