A Parting Gift – Digital Painting

For those following my instagram stories over the last few weeks, you have got to see the birth of this piece. It started out as one of my daily gesture sketches of an old editorial of Mona Johannesson. I had made the mistake of using printer paper to do the drawing and as I started to shade it the paper wasn’t holding up. I ended up scanning it and finishing the drawing via Digital Painting. There was something I liked a lot about the sketch so I decided to develop it further. I’ve been really into 1500-1600 century painting and tapestries. Based on those inspirations, I started to concept the piece to be a scene from my brother’s and my up coming book series. There are a lot fun little details in this piece. Also, some guest appearances in the tapestry of Lily Cole, Alexander McQueen, and Simon Ungless. I hope you like it. I’m planning a color version right now, then I will oil paint it.

P.S. I want to thank Mona for letting me use her dog Selma in the painting. It is one of my favorite parts of the piece. :)

Hello, my friends! Whatcha been up to? Wow, thanks for all the lovely comments on the drawing of Lisa. :) The drawing i’m posting today is one i did for a client, but it wasn’t exactly the art direction they were looking for, so i get to share it with you all. i hope you like it. It was a blend of water color, ink, color pencil, and pen. Are you getting excited for Fashion Week coming up? Anyone going? Well, i’m definitely excited to see what’s coming out. :)
