On the Beach by TheoVision On the Beach by TheoVision
A year ago I saw a photograph in a swimsuit special of the Dutch "de Bijenkorf Magazine" with a model holding a big card board behind her. It stood out because of the very bright colors and the composition.

I keep interesting reference material apart, so when I was thinking of doing a new pixel project I browsed the big pile of magazines and found her again!

I've changed several parts of the model, including the bikini, chose a totally different color palette but kept the card board set-up and created a brand new beach background.

Reference: Solar Initiative swimsuit model (unfortunally I could not find the digital version online).

Posing in a swim suit is not abusive to a woman's body (unless you would like to mention the harmful UV ray's inflicted by the sun, but somehow I doubt that is what you meant). No one is forcing a model wear a bikini - or anything for that matter; they volunteer.

In fact, I think it is rather empowering as a woman, to be able to do so and get paid for it. It is the same situation as when a male model decides to model underware. No matter how degrading you as a person may think it is, the fact of the matter is that the model still gets paid for it (they get paid a lot for it too; hundreds to thousands of dollars per shoot) and more than likely enjoys all of the celebrity and attention they get for it as well.

Her head seems a little small to me, but every thing else is amazing. When I saw the thumbnail I thought it was a photo and almost didn't look at it. But then I saw the size and read the description!
