It has taken me a long time to get the above image 'right' in comparison to the inspiration image. The piece uses elements from eight (8) photos as part of this digital drawing. The most difficult parts were the hands and the dress.
Below is the version of the same image done in February 2013. Quite a difference! My drawing ability has definitely improved in the span of a year plus a few months.

Flapper? Ingenue? What is the word you'd use to describe this piece?
It evolved from the design process described in my last post and was finished this morning after doing both a dark fur/background version and this one. They differed in that the darker version drew the eye to the background rather than the drawing. This one doesn't.
What I like about this piece is how the the wavy hair comes through by the use of limited echo lines and how the background pattern of blue symmetrical flowers echo the blue [pair of] earrings.
Do you have a guess about how may photos were used in this digital drawing?
