This is a head painting of another friend of Sala’s, the lovely Rachelle.  I actually had her dress up for me over Christmas break and we had a photo shoot.


I did a basic pencil sketch to start out with then scanned it into the computer to paint it digitally.












This was just supposed to be another study, but I was having so much fun that I ended up creating a mostly finished painting.  She reminds me a bit of Maid Marian so if I were to name this piece it would be “Dreams of Sherwood.”


Here are some close ups, I’m rather pleased with the clasp design I created:



Sometime I may come back to this piece and refine the border on her hood,  but I’m happy with it for now.  Thanks for posing for me Rachelle!

Sometimes I like to sketch people from Facebook, anyone is fair game (watch out, you could be next!).  Last week I did this sketch of one of Sala’s friends:


I liked how it turned out, so like any good sister would  do, I turned Sala’s friend into a Slytherin from Hogwarts casting an illegal spell.


The one on top is more saturated and higher contrast, the one below is duller.  I’m not sure which version I like better so I included them both.


Oh, and in case you were wondering, the core of his wand is the heartstring of a teenage girl 😛
