Chantal's Got a Gun by suburbanbeatnik Chantal's Got a Gun by suburbanbeatnik
Here's another painting from the vaults. This started out as kind of a joke, actually- the teacher of this entertainment class I was taking at the time told us, "By all means, do NOT paint a picture of a girl with a gun!" So, of course, I had to figure out how to paint a girl with a gun, in a way that was distinctive. So, I used one of my many characters- Chantal Verger de Lambermont- dressed her in high 1830s fashion, gave her a period pistol, and flanked her with admiring dandies. I also tried painting her face like a 1940s pin-up, a la Varga or Gil Elvgren, with full-on lipstick, blush and plucked eyebrows.

I love your cunning wit; how did your instructor react?

Very nice touch, her in the center in warm colors and the guys quasi-symmetrical in blue...

Well, by the time I did it, I had dropped out of the class in question. Ah well!

Aw, so we'll never know! Funny story, nonetheless! I love the necklace strings flowing back behind her.

Yeah, the skull choker is cute! She's a cool character, but one, alas, without a story...
