Victory, not VD by JessiBeans Victory, not VD by JessiBeans
CHOW (Character of the Week) #154 over on ConceptArt.org - a World War 2 motivational poster.

I saw a TON of posters from the WW2 era, when doing my research on this challenge, that talked about keeping it in your pants due to risks for various venereal diseases, which amused me highly. This is my take on that...? Yeah... :D

Photoshop CS3 and CS4 + Wacom Intuos 3
About 5 1/2 hours

I love this. I work at a health department and we would love to use your artwork to promote STD testing. Would you be willing to let us use your image?

Faux vintage done to perfection. When I look at what you can do in 5 1/2 hours, I feel very bad about my work day. ;)

Ok - I laughed out loud when I read the caption at the bottom corner. I love the evil cock of her eyebrow like she's daring whoever is in there with her to try and run (she'll catch 'em). The color is beautiful and true to the era. Excellent job on the pose and all the shading. Beautiful!

Wowza! What a Woman and she looks like she really, really likes to win as she prepares to give the first team a good going over to insure the victory. i wonder how many years in the profession it takes to attain the degree of precision required for a latex cloaked finger to feel the bacteria causing VD; or does she lustfully root around for a long while before responding to your inquiry that this she just does for fun, to determine syphilis and other disease the doctor will be in shortly to swab and send for a laboratory test.
