original drawing/painting prior to photoshop

Mixed Media – experimentation on A3 Acid Free Drawing Paper, with Mechanical Pencil, Woodless Charcoal, Faber Castell PITT artist Pens, Correction Pen, Graphite Paint and Photoshop

just going through some books for inspiration and came up with a sixties inspired look for ‘Ginger Rose’ with the freckly nose… lol…i hope you like her, I’m really happy with how this turned out…i enjoyed using a brand new medium with the liquid graphite

I spent a couple of hours drawing and painting her on paper and another couple of hours in photoshop

    she is very special Karin….a very nice style you have worked in…I wonder if some faded out lines around the hair would work? Just a thought not a critique dear friend

    Fabulous Karin….I’ve never seen liquid graphite, sounds interesting!!

  • thank you so much Alexandra, it’s great stuff…like using pencil but liquid…you can mix with water to dilute, or use it straight, they have different tints…and it’s really great for blocking in your shadows…it gives me greater control over then and a more natural even look :)

    yeah it’s the beautiful big eyes you have in your work that made me think of her, would looooove to see you do some more chicks with a 60’s influence :))

  • thanks Steph…that’s where my influence is coming from at the moment, so hope there’ll be more, i have to trick myself into drawing when i’m least expecting it…so anything can happen at the moment, bit of experimentation going on :) x
