If only that was Jin grinding with Tina… or better yet, me!
this is one of my favorite Bud pages ever
where did naive bud go?
Alcohol… engages a different side of her.
Perhaps it’s more accurate to say that sobriety allows her to remember all that she is and all that she’s lost.
“Just because you can’t dance doesn’t mean you SHOULDN’T dance” – Alcohol
Oh! Oh! I know that… It’s like what I’ve been telling myself every time I’ve been to the dance floor. You’re telling me that was the booze talking?
Totally cutesy Tina in Panel 2.
Totally hot Tina Panel 3.
And where exactly is her right thigh?
More or less where Bud’s left thigh is, sort of.
AGH! Doing great tonight – i meant “Bud’s RIGHT thigh”…
Hate to ruin everyone’s enjoyment of the dancefloor grind, but the placement of Bud’s legs is utterly implausible. It would require Bud’s left leg to be somewhat shorter than her right one.
Point the first: this is a CARTOON.
Point the second: Neg, have you EVER heard of foreshortening?
In case that didn’t explain it to you, BOTH of Bud’s legs are bent. Her left leg is pointed roughly towards us, and her right is broadside.
Neg, you have all the understanding of perspective of an Ancient Egyptian.
Heh. You avatar, using one of my favourite covers Kelly Freas did for “Astounding”, and the subject matter here, reminds me of the cover Kelly did for “Operation Afreet” in F&SF.
Kelly did the rough that JWCjr approved, planning to use his wife, Polly, for a model (Polly was a Real Babe in them there days).
And then he discovered that his planned pose would require her to bend her back in a humanly-impossible direction. (It didn’t look like it to him till she tried it, and it STILL doesn’t look like it to me, just looking at the finished painting…)
So he took two photographs and cut and pasted them to get the pose.
Argh! Not John Campbell – he was at “Astounding/ANALOG”. DOn’t know who was art director at F&SF in 1956.
This is perhaps the hottest pic in the whole archive!
