|'Dora' - by Jez|
It's always interesting to consider how minimal the drawing of a face can be to make it recognisable as a face. This mock-digital approach provided just the essential information, though looking at it now, I realise that I could even have left out the line representing the bridge of the nose.
I found Dora in a magazine photo, and liked her 'over the shoulder' look. The collaged numbers were from an illustration in an old Vanity Fair magazine.
Here's what she looked like at the drawing and collage stage before I scanned her into Photoshop:
In Photoshop I used the colour picker to select the buff colour from the numbers collage to use for the background so that the image hung together, and I'm pleased with the result.
I know it's only the end of the first week, but so far I have managed to stick to my theme of using a different style or technique for each day. I don't know how long I'll be able to keep that up, but I'm trying, and really finding it fun.
