This is my entry into the happy challenge.
I got into the top ten! It was a very impressive set of portraits so I’m honored to have made it.
This is a style I’ve been meaning to try for a while. I started with “inks” in Flash, and then took that over to painter to add “oils” behind it. I also wanted to play a bit more with colours, adding in greens and blues to the skin tone instead of sticking with a two colour brown effect like most of my stuff.
Has it been effective? I’m not sure. However I have learned one thing from this experience – my nose is slightly tilted to one side.
If you want to see a series of images showing the progress of this illustration I’ve posted it in a journal entry here
