The Magic Wand

This picture above started out as a doodle in my sketchbook, the page was covered with little dabs of paint where I was trying out the colours. Thanks to the magic wand in photoshop, hey presto they're gone! now all I have to do is remember what on earth I did for next time! I painted the girl without any black pen lines, it gives a different feel to it doesn't it?
Life drawing this morning and I wanted to get the model's face right, so had another go above the original drawing. I mananged to get her ear and hair done in more detail but the one below actually looks more like her!
Oh! An email just popped up from Illustration Friday so I'll be off now to see what we have in store this week!

Your drawings are lovely. I really like the girl without the dark lines, her sleeves are particularly interesting.

Hi Jessie, I think the girl has a very different feel to her after creating her without penlines I think she's lovely she has a softness to her. Your life drawing sketches are gorgeous!!!
