Lesbian retro drawing

This is another artwork based on photographs by Colombian illustrator Sergio Escobar.  Rendering naked girls in line and making them look attractive is not that easy but he's done a good job here.  He's given them a retro-looking appeal that makes them look like late-sixties or early seventies thriller book covers or lifetyle magazine illustrations.   Indeed the whole thing looks like an X-rated romanrtic short story illustration from a seventies womens' magazine.

The extreme perspective of the figure at the bottom left is what betrays its wide-angle photographic origin.  If we have one criticism it would be to have found a more appropriately seventies font.

He has one more similar picture which is rather more conventional in conception.
