When I start a new artwork I always do an extended period of research, so I can have some ideas to start the modeling process. The general idea for this piece - the pinup - came from searching from finding these references (Fig.01).

I started the modeling with a simple base mesh and I worked on the general volumes and anatomy of the "T" pose. After that, I posed the model to fix and clean up the anatomy of the body (Fig.02).

I modeled the general form of the hair by using a cylinder. I took it and then "drew" the shape and added some edges. Then I deleted the extra polygons to get the general shape, and extruded it a bit to complete the length of the hair. Finally I used the "solidify" modifier to add some volume.

I repeated the process a couple of times to form the braids of the hair (Fig.03 & Fig.04).

After I'd finished the hair, I started to model the cap. The details made all the difference, so I spent a lot of energy on them. The emblem was the main ornament of the cap and so I modeled some parts of it separately so I could work on it more easily in ZBrush. Then I made the whole base of the cap (Fig.05 & Fig.06).
