colours are what keep me alive

Latest illustration. I deliberately left it ‘unfinished’. Therefore it is finished. This one’s another pencil on paper/digital edit (photoshop) job. The inspiration for this was an image from the Karl Lagerfeld SS08 collections. The initial sketch only took me about 30 minutes. The colouring took a bit longer as I mostly did it in hour brackets every couple of nights. The main problem was just picking the right shades, so I spent a lot of time colouring in and then undoing it because the colour wasn’t right. But now it’s all finished. Ta-da!
