Playing with color
I want to thank all of you who have left such kind, thoughtful comments and fascinating observations on my illustration this week. I am always incredibly honored to receive the feedback from this group of talented and creative people. I am often asked how I've created a particular illustration since I don't usually add that after my other commentary. I guess I don't want to ramble too much... Anyway, this week, the talented, witty, and always informative Jeope said that it would be interesting if I were to "dish on the process more often," so dish I will!
The drawing above is the original version, done with a micron pen and markers on bristol. I used a little bit of water on a brush to bleed the edges along the hair. I scanned it and then put in the background and a little bit of highlighting on the face using photoshop. I turned it blue for the illustration below by adjusting the hue and saturation and changing the background. Very simple!
