Choose

This weeks topic for Illustration Friday was choose. I spent some time thinking about what I could or should draw and ended up choosing the K-Mart catalogue. The drawing started in pencil and I wanted to keep the line work really smooth. However as I got to the end it was taking on a much more sketchy look. So I went over it all with fineliner and erased the pencil lines.

By this time I had already decided to scan the image and colour it in with photoshop. I ended up spending quite a while on this as the image needed some cleaning up, plus there were a lot of colours to consider. Selecting the colours is my favourite part and I love the bright red and blue ankle boots the best. I went with a
grey background to start with but suddenly realised it didn't work at all.
