No, it's not an April Fools trick, I really did finish another Retro Girl
Third in the color series (and my personal favorite color), the title actually came first on this one and then the image jumped into my head almost imediately after. Smokey lounge with a 1950's style cocktail dress.
For some reason, I had 'How Long Has This Been Going On' playing in my head the whole time I worked on it, though I don't know why since it's not really
a sad song. It does have that somber, lilting feel. I think more likely the guy at the piano is playing 'They Can't Take That Away From Me' or 'Stormy Weather,' something more like that.
Medium: Original sketch vectored over in Illustrator (yup, that includes all those little lines, too. All vectored shapes) Brush texture/grain to the base of the bar done with a custom brush in Photoshop.
Other colors in the series so far:
