Illustration Friday: "Shiny"

When I watched Lana Del Rey's "Born to Die" video, my take-away was mostly "Wow, her hair is really shiny."  So I did this sketch and watercolor-ed it up for the Illustration Friday theme.

 The likeness isn't that great on this one (I was looking at a bunch of pictures for reference and I think it would have been better if I'd just picked one) but I do like it as a painting.  Just watercolor with some violet pencil on top.


  1. Looks great, love the hair. Very nicely done.

  2. Lovely! I also did hair, but since I'm not very good at faces it's from behind haha.

    1. Thank you :) I thought yours was lovely too!
