Art Collaboration with dearfutures3lf!

Monday, August 15, 2016

As part of a collaboration with my dear Filipina buddy, we decided to do portraits of each other! Leila, of dearfutures3lf.wordpress.com, had done a digital portrait of me which you can view by clicking on this link. I did a traditional watercolour, done in an illustration style I've been practicing and on which I'll do a post about it all! Hope you like it :D

For the portrait, I drew a rough outline following with rough sketches of the facial features. Afterwards, I moved on with watercolour paints starting with light greys and then gradually moving onto colours. I then refined the outline and facial features with a black gel ink pen to make it stand out more and finished with some hard shading.
