Every Girl - Color

 

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

Digital art. This is a modification of a hand-drawn portrait I made months ago called SamanthaI’ve been submitting to a lot of literary magazines lately, and have been noting some fantastic cover art.

Looking back at my own work, and manipulating some colors in this (originally graphite) picture, I saw a lot of fun possibilities. Go ahead and make a simple sketch of your own, and take a picture of it. Drop it into Sketchbook Pro, Photoshop, or Illustrator — I bet you’ll come up with more artistic uniqueness that you ever thought!

I like the strong yellow. I like the loud colors. I like those color qualities against the softness of the female portrait. I enjoyed playing with this. Give your own artwork a digital-color try — and share them, of course!

Keep being great, lots of hugs,
Penney

ABOUT THIS PICTURE

Digital artwork. I made it using Photoshop. It is based from an original drawing I did in pen and ink, posted here. I like how playing with the color saturation really made the contours of the cliffs pop out. Seeing the cliffs apart from their original panoramic format helps me to appreciate my own work better. In this context, not part of the original (bland by comparison sketch) I see the shapes split from what they represented in real life and more of an individualized expression with many possibilities.
