This inking technique is inspired by the work of one of my favourite illustrators Mark Rudolph.

Singers

Red head singer by Eddy Crosby
1960's girl singer by Eddy Crosby
These girls were inspired by the look of Sixties singers like Helen Shapiro, Ronnie Spector and Dusty Springfield.
Medium: PITT oil based pencil and watercolours/acrylics on 230gsm watercolour paper


Rough sketches

These are my rough development sketches. First I drew the basic pose (left) then on detail paper refined and stylised it further (right).

Method: After I was happy with my refined sketch I transferred it via light box onto watercolour paper using blue Col Erase pencil. Went over the blue line with a Pitt oil based pencil (extra soft). They work well on watercolour paper. Painted using W&N watercolours (pan set) with a little opaque acrylic on the dress, shoes and the gloves.

inked with Calli black ink and sable brush.

bigeye_girl09
I erased the blue pencil and painted it with watercolours. The colours were adjusted in Photoshop to give it a more retro feel.
