Rose Colored Glasses

This is actually an earlier sketch, with a bit of photoshop added. I decided to revisit it because it has more significance in relation to the rest of my illustration, as its main purpose is to convey emotion, rather than just to say “Hey, here’s a face I drew.” A wonderful piece to look at. I’d love to trace it and turn it into something more complete, but it would lose the sublime, spontaneous style that can only really happen in the moment.

The Governor-General

Here’s a Governor-General.

Not any particular one, just a random one all decked out in his finest Court uniform and cocked hat with plumes, looking just as splendid as a viceregal representative ought to. No more explanation is necessary, I think. . .

I used a white marker for the elaborate embroidery, although I think a dip pen and my trusty white india ink would have served me better.
