Battlestations Midway pin-up 2 by henning Battlestations Midway pin-up 2 by henning
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

This is one out of three pin-up ladies I painted for Kennedy & Monk for the computer game “Battlestations Midway” from EIDOS. It was a different and very exiting experience working on these illustrations. They were heavily art directed by a very talented director, and we had a good time developing this. They are not being used in the game, but are being used for PR purposes and similar things.

The game is available on XBox-360 and PC once it releases later this month.

Painted using Photoshop CS2 with a Wacom Intuos tablet. I spent many hours on this one, I don’t know how many exactly.

I'd like to have this image used on the back of my company t-shirts.  Can I get approval to use it?  My company is a woman owned steel fabrication company based in Cleveland Ohio.  Anchor Construction Services.

Only thing is not using it for any commercial stuff. Not even I'm allowed to do that :P

Hi, Thought you might like to now I saw this very same pin-up used on the outside walls of a cafe in a village named St Mere Eglise, in Normandy France. I was in that village last June 6th attending the 70th commemoration of D-Day. I even took photos of this pin-up because it looked so good. Great to finally get a decent download of it and say thank you directly to the artist.

I've just done a google maps street view looking for it but the image of the building is dated 2010 here's the link. Maybe you can find a more up to date version? Like I said, I was there in 2014.

Great picture! Saved and fav'ed.

Hello! Thanks for the heads up :thanks: 
Yeah, this has become one of the most stolen images on the internet, I'm sure. I see it all over the place, and while it's annoying to know that others are making more from it than I did, there's not really much I can do about it. It all belongs to a client of mine, and not even I'm allowed to use it for anything, haha. 

Oh well :cowboy:

I am such a fan of pin-up girls, and have created a few designs (though not hand-drawn but used brushes in program)...I would so love to use these but respect you and the person they were done for. WTG on the great work!

Hello :)
My client, Eidos interactive owns all rights to this piece so I'm not allowed to give out any permissions, unfortunately. Appreciate your interest in my work, by the way. :)

I thought that might be the case, but I thoroughly enjoyed looking at them regardless. Maybe one day I can learn to draw them realistically enough on my own.

Being that I served 3 years on-board the USS Midway (CV-41) and decommissioned her, I find this image quite satisfying!

Found your artwork here: [link]

I think they don't have your permission :/

Good luck! ;)

Yup, no permission. These illustrations are stolen all the time, so I've kind of given up on chasing them down. Thanks for the heads up, though :)

This is stunning and harks back to the Vargas/Petty/Elvgren style of the 40's and 50's. I love that style of artwork, I've just never managed to get a woman to model for me.
