First sketch. Graphite on paper and Photoshop.
Majdeline from http://www.musicandfashionstyle.blogspot.com/ asked me to make a header for her brandnew website, wich will be online soon: www.muscandfashionstyle.nl She does a lot of things. She is a model, singer, vocal coach, fashionblogger who also writes for online media, besides that she is beautiful.
Color combination. (Beige, Pink, lightbrown)
At first I made a header with a figure with her photo 'as reference', like an interpetation of her. but I didn't realize that she wanted a realistic drawing of herself, so I made the illustration again, as you can see below.
Graphite on paper and Photoshop.For the hair I used an effect in Photoshop, called: screen. You can change the colors of sketchline this way. I used it also in another illustration 'Hatgirl' and I love this glowy effect.
