COMMISSION: Lauren and Tara

This was a commission for Aidenke's ( characters Lauren and Tara.

This is the final.

And a peek at the process.  Here's one of the first ideas.

This one was my favorite.  It's both erotic and playful.  But Aidenke wanted a side view.

So this is a pretty late stage sketch side view.  For some reason I've been having a lot of problems with profiles lately, so I changed the seated figure's face quite a lot.  The girl on top's face came really quickly though.

At first I started coloring using my standard chalk brushes, but it didn't seem to fit the picture and pencils.  The colors ended up looking really messy and too gritty.  So I threw them all out and started from scratch with a more comic-book coloring approach.  This seemed to work better.


  1. Lovely work, Bentan!! :) I like the second sketch too- but the finished artwork is great. It's too bad that you have to settle on one final sketch, sometimes they all have promise. You set the high bar on erotic artwork...

  2. Thank you, Christopher. Yeah, I am tempted sometimes to finish the other sketches thrown away :).
