...it seems like the translation is lacking soul.
My re-drawing of the body is less simple and cartoony. Right now it's looking kind of porn star to me, so I'm hoping i can go in and remove some of the booboos after I process the plate (i.e. the second belly button, the HUGE nipple, the hair (why did i add hair) the mistakes in the legs.)
anyway, if this one's gonna work, I'll need to really nail the color.
I may blow up the photocopy as large as I can and do a transfer, and then see which version I like better.
Actually, now that I think about it, it might look better as two parts: print the flags and background, then do a separate plate for the body to give the whole thing the collaged together feel i like about the drawing. Maybe I can do it in two colors. ooooooo.
Oh dear, now I have to start again I think.
