Latest ideas for Beauty (not decided a different name yet). I've used tracing paper to draw this image which I have used for both illustrations. The blonde version is mostly computer edited, as i tried applying texture to the dress (using a colour print i did a while ago) and then coloured the skin, hair etc, in photoshop. I think it is successful to a bit to refined.
I then tried using colouring pencils on the reverse of the tracing paper, highlighting areas and giving it a more drawn, sketchy look, rather than a finished one. They could both be improved but I'm definitely getting somewhere exploring different ways of working.
