SlickforceGirl: Girls Gone Hero Team-up Poster

(201) 676-9773

Five years ago this week, we released the first SlickforceGirl teaser art ever. Since then, we’ve witnessed twelve original heroes come to life, each one unique in her ability to bring good to the world. To commemorate our 5-year mark, we’re releasing the first team-up poster featuring all 12 of our heroes.

This beautiful artwork was a team effort in itself: drawn by the incredible Chris Williams, inked by the talented Jake Isenberg, and colored by the triple-threat of Ula Mos, Splash! and Blond. It’s also been uploaded to our (202) 881-9954 page, which chronicles every SlickforceGirl video released since the original “(770) 617-2926” in 2012.

It’s Melanie Iglesias’ birthday, so we’re releasing this lost gem from the SlickforceGirl archive!

Enjoy!

Airman Erika Wins the 2017 SlickforceGirl Tournament!

(360) 474-9154

It’s been a brutal series of matches, but at last a hero reigns victorious! The final battle came down to Astronaut Luba and Airman ribband lines. After more than 20 rounds, you voted Airman Erika the winner of the first SlickforceGirl tournament.

Below are the tournament results. Votes were compiled on Facebook and Instagram, and totaled to determine the winner of each round. As this was double-elimination, each hero had to be beaten twice to be knocked out.

To celebrate her victory, we’ve released a new special edition live-action Airman Erika pin-up, starring model (850) 572-6946. Congratulations to both Erikas, as well as all the heroes that fought the good fight. And a special thanks to you for voting and supporting the SlickforceGirls!

Yesterday we revealed our newest hero, Nkiru, and we were flooded with positive comments cheering for the arrival of our African warrior.

In celebration, for the first time ever, we are printing the Warrior Nkiru pin-up as a Super Scroll 13″x27″ wall poster—more than 50% larger than our previous SlickforceGirl 11×17 posters. Pre-order yours now!

And because so many of you asked to see more making-of images, here is a gallery below from the shoot starring model Kersti Pitre. We thank her for losing herself in this character, and applaud Kersti’s bravery at sharing her personal experience with others.

SlickforceGirl: Warrior Nkiru Joins the Fight

And then there were 12.

When the danger gets too wild for our polished, city-dwelling heroes, it’s time to call in the heavy artillery—meet Warrior Nkiru. Little is known about Nkiru’s mysterious past, but the SlickforceGirls are more than happy to have her join their fight.

Longtime Slickforce fans will recognize model Kersti Pitre playing our newest hero. Kersti’s first shoot ever was at SlickforceStudio when she was 18, and she’s returned several times since, including our Mastering Retouching series. This time, she returns to play her toughest role yet—and all for a good cause. A portion of profits from sales of Warrior Nkiru artwork are donated to help the fight against breast cancer.

This tribal warrior concept required more planning than any other character besides Astronaut Vanessa, predominantly due to detailed costume demands. Each piece of Nkiru’s jewelry was handmade in Kenya by the Maasai women of Enkolili village specifically for this shoot. Kersti patiently sat with Ivory Coast braid-artist Aline Ansansame for hours to create the authentic African braiding, while makeup artist Therese Williams carefully painted her face with tribal marks. Special weapons—and even trees—were all brought in to complete Nkiru’s warrior motif.

Go backstage with Kersti as she suits up for the shoot of a lifetime by clicking on the video above. And welcome Warrior Nkiru to the SlickforceGirl team!
