50's American Waitress

Recommended Posts

Here's a stylised portrait that I've finally finished after  been sat on my HD for a couple of years.


All vectors, no pixels. Liberal use of layer blends, fx, transparency, masks etc and a bit of tweaking to give the colours a more vintage feel.


Initially a quick colouring/shading test and just made it up as I went along; it worked out well and taught me the principles I used in my recent baby portrait. It's not anyone in particular, just a random selection of Google image searches refenced for the various facial features as I drew them.


After all these years, I'm finally free from Illustrator and it's tedious Gradient Mesh! ;)
