Sara O’Neill

I found that Sara O’Neill used very similar techniques to Kelly Smith therefor to switch things up i took a section from one of Sara O’Neill’s illustrations in which she used pencil and added my own take on it by using Acrylic paints. The Acrylic give the eyes strong definition as well as a nice sheen. Firstly i drew out the eye just like Sara using pencil. i then filled the outlines with black and brown Acrylics before adding finishing touches of white Acrylic to add light in the public and the lash line.



Experimenting Kelly Smith Style

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.
