GRACE promo pin-up WIP 2

And THIS is how I have mistakenly drawn the Bondage Grace pin-up before having to delete this background and add the previously shown one with Maria, Jerry and their lab surroundings.

Drawn with 2mm lead, 3H hardness and NO INKS on Windsor & Newton A5-sized sketchbook cardstock.

The bondage photo of the incomparable Jasmine Sinclair was used for the reference without an attempt for likeness. She has approved the use of the photo and I am very pleased for the fact.

GRACE promo pin-up WIP

Due to the misunderstanding between my publisher/editor and myself I did the previously shown illustration that can be seen here https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-s2YcGKvHkjI/TY4q_eC7MPI/AAAAAAAAAPs/wdGzuvtIYvw/s1600/bondage__if_you_are_the_rope__by_darkbraincomics-d3chng4.jpg a little differently. The drawing was amended and BACKGROUND ACTION was done on a separate sheet of paper to be spliced together with the FOREGROUND main elements.
