 Pin-Up  refer to drawings, paintings, and other illustrations done in emulation of   photos  . The term was first attested to in English in 1941;  however, the practice is documented back at least to the 1890s.
 pin-ups were artwork depicting idealized versions of what some thought a particularly beautiful or attractive woman should look like. An early example of the latter type was the Gibson girl, a representation of the New Woman drawn by Charles Dana Gibson. "Because the New Woman was symbolic of her new ideas about her sex, it was inevitable that she would also come to symbolize new ideas about sexuality."

I am not what you think. My paintovers of getting exact proportions and placement allows spot on accuracy. Drawing is the foundational glue that holds any image together. Can you imagine if I placed the eye too low or lips to far up etc. This painting over allows for tracing accuracy. I am TOO TRUE to be done by human hands. At the top of  the portrait artists such as John Singer Sargent, John Howard Sanden and many famous contemporaries in the world of portraitist , their likeness are relied on capturing the mood and personalities of the sitter.They are the reigning top of the top in their field in direct painting by sitter. I am NOT.
If I could and paint traditionally, I should be among the distinguish members of the society of portrait artists.I DON'T COMMAND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.
These artist in the society are at the range of 90% accuracy, very good observational skills. However, MINE are 100 % in placement, location shape within shape, relationship to edges and overall accurate form. This is an impossible claim.

Don't assume all works are drawn as truths.. These are paintovers.

In conclusion I AM THE BEST A PHOTO MANIPULATOR and certainly not a draughtman.
