Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 48


Who's the most beautiful woman in the world? Why, Helen of Troy, of course! She put the T & A in The Iliad! This was the cover to the first issue of the series, the final version of which you can see here.



And who better to pose as the most beautiful woman than yours truly. Look at that ethereal light! It reminds me of those soft-focus glamour shots from the nineties.



The first photo didn't give me quite enough detail, so I had to take this close-up of my beautifully delicate hands.

  3. Haha, any more soft focus and it'll look like a Barbara Walters interview.

    I really dig this cover...I think it's because it reminds me of the drawings and such found on the side of greek vases.

  5. That's just wrong on so many levels ;)
    I was wondering why there were never any girl ref photos here, now I know the truth damn it, now I know the truth.
    I know that the Hildebrants dressed up as hobbits but this is a lot to take in.

  6. Man, I discovered you through Gallo's blog. Your work looks dope! I like this painting. Nice contrast. And I like the black between the figures. It reminds me of those ancient red figure vases.

  8. You're right, Shawn. But even though they're not my hands, I still plan on taking them with me to Taiwan.

  10. Mauro, my Italian is a little rusty, but I'm pretty sure that was a compliment. Grazie.
