Female Muscle Pin-up by DavidCMatthews Female Muscle Pin-up by DavidCMatthews
Over at the :iconfemalemuscle: Female Muscle club, the December theme was "Glamour Girl/Cheescake Pin-up": members were invited to submit illustrations of muscular women rendered in the style of the famous pin-up/cheescake artists like Gil Elvgren, George Petty, Alberto Varga(s) et al.

Apparently, December was not a good month for a lot of the artists, because only two or three submissions were received. So they decided to extend the theme for one more week.

Which meant that I still had a few more days to crank out my submission. And yes, it was kind of important that I submit something because, well, the theme was my idea.

So with time being of the essence, I cast about for an idea for a "pin-up" style muscle-babe. I figured I could save some time by doing a buffed-up version of an existing picture; namely, "I'm For You" by Al Buell, which you can find at this page and scroll to the Gallery at the bottom.

Oh masterful artist of muscular female pulchritude! Would it ever be possible to hope that one day you might cause your fans to masturbate their dicks off by producing a whole series of these bygone babes with biceps, based on the artists you cite above (especially....pant, pant....Vargas!)?

Nice!
She's cute...a little amazonian with a nice balance between toned muscle and feminine fat projecting innocence with a disciplined, yet titanic sensuality. A horse usually represents the ideal balance between graceful muscle and feminine fat. I think most women are either too small with too much fat or go to the other extreme of rippled muscle with too little fat. This one is nearly perfect, but I can't recall a term to describe her rounded, balanced body type.

Got that nice, old-fashioned Vargas feel, like something you might've seen gracing the nose of a P-40, back in the day!

Well done, sir!
