This illustration is called Eden after the model Eden Bristowe who was the muse. This piece is full of layers. The first layer was hand drawn with Ironlak pencils and watercolour for the bleeds on the tee and hair highlights. The second layer was coloured in photoshop for the skin tone then printed and coloured over the top with Prisma colour pencils. This is so the colour felt less digital. I like working this way as you can alter colours and manipulate it more. The reference image was black and white so I had to guess the skin tone.
