Kelly Smith is known for using pencil and water colour to create portrait like fashion illustrations, in my experiments i used the same media as Kelly for one of my images as well as using a mixture of pencil, chalks and Photoshop to give different effects of her designs.
For the below image i firstly used pencil to create the illustration, i then used different pencils to shade and contour different areas within the illustration, finally just like Kelly i added finishing touches of a light pink watercolor to add blush to the cheeks and roses. these pops of colour really brought the image to life.
For the below image again i used pencil to outline the drawing, after shading i decided to experiment with a different media, i chose chalks as i felt they give a light texture not far off watercolor, i didn’t want it to overpower the image but to add to it enhancing it lightly,
The below image was outside any techniques that Kelly uses for this image i hand drew the outline and shaded the figure. For the roses however i inserted the image into Photoshop i filled the rose with a peachy tone and added the watercolor filter, lastly i mirrored the image to give the twin effect that Kelly uses.
