So lately I've been thinking I need to do more sketches for fun and experiment a little more with different media...it's surprising how easy it is to get used to just doing work and forget about drawing for enjoyment sometimes! For my Digital Illustration class, I also needed a drawing that I could demonstrate Photoshop color flatting & line color on. A few calligraphic brush experiments later--viola!
I thought it would be fun to go for the style of a 50's/60's Nancy Drew/Pulp Detective book cover. She ended up reminding me a little of the old vintage barbie dolls, and hence the title of this post. :)
