This is my latest Muse, the lovely Kym Many people know of Kym and her work, this is a photograph she gave to me so that I can do another drawing or print.

In this I have mostly worked in photoshop and at a later date I will draw this picture or print it by making a copper plate etching. So this is basically a “mock-up” for a future works.

I have just completed STAGE 1 of a copper plate etching with collaboration with another bubblier Barrasel and will also be posting a link to his work.

Hope you like this Kym …..Billy

1. Layered two pictures together
2. Posterized it after flattening
2. Changed colours and Hue
3. Then tidied up line with Healing tool
4. Used Dodge tool and Burn tool to lighten and darken areas.
