My love for patterns, hair, and detailing all in one image. =)
Illustration was intended to go on a computer (Mac) gel skin cover.


Original Image size: 15 × 10.3 inches

Bristol type paper

Line-work done with black micron pens ranging from 0.05 to 0.2, and a violet prisma colour pen of 0.05 width

+ a little bit of diluted waterproof ink for the pink blush in the cheeks and lips

Time: unknown, but far longer than 1 hour

(Process here –

P.S. – The title of the piece is inspired by the song “The Violet Hour” by The Civil Wars, a song which I love and imagine this illustrated woman listening to as her hair sways in the wind.
