1. First of all, I looked for a picture in a magazine to take it as inspirationInline image 30Inline image 31
2. I draw first the body, then, I add the clothes, the hair and the face details.Inline image 33
3. Then, I retrace the main lines to make it more clean, but I erase them to paint it.Inline image 34
4. I will use aquarelle watercolours and pencils to paint it.

5. I start by the skin, because it's the lightest color and when it's dry, I add some shadows

6. As the dress has some transparencies, after painting the skin, I paint the skirt with aquarelle pencils. First I paint the very soft fabric that overlaps the skin and paint the shadow

A Sad Poem For A Sad Day

Before I leave you guys to read my poem, here's little backstory...
When i'm sad, I always always imagine a storm cloud on my head, this storm slowly spreads through my mood, and I feel like every time I speak to someone when i'm sad, i'm giving a bit of my storm to them, so most of the time I avoid speaking. As you are reading, you will notice that every line starts with the word that the previous line ends with, this is done to show that sadness slowly builds up on everything that one feels and it creates a chain reaction. This pattern is broken towards the end to show that I have decided to fight back. Hope you enjoy reading!
