Day 15: Head and Hat Illustrations

girls-hat-illustration

Hello Friends! I’ve been busy working on a few illustrations that I love! Seriously, I’m really excited that I can say I love some of my work. Yeehaw!

These two gals are a couple of my favs. I wanted to paint without using a pen to outline everything, so I did. I’m totally digging these two…I love the look without the pen outline. What do you think?

I tried taking pics of these but they turned out blah. I love using my scanner…easy…but my art gets a bit washed out. The detail in the hats aren’t showing up. boo. Any tips on which scanner would be best for scanning art?

See you tomorrow…

  1. I totally love them too! Are they watercolor?

    • kristinmaynes says:

      Yes, they’re watercolors. :)

      • Kristin, I just noticed that you used Mari’s advice about the darker upper lip and lighter lower lip – it looks GREAT! It really makes an attractive difference. I especially like the red-hat lady’s lips.

          It looks so much better with the darker upper lip. Great tip from Mari!

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

    I have been looking at what you are drawing and love it all.

    Also going to look at that iPad app you like. I bought ArtSet but am not too impressed with it.

    I think your job must be a lot of fun. Never knew anyone who did fashion drawing; how fascinating! Sophisticated! (I say that as I sit in pajamas and sweat pants…)

  3. I know the problem of scan quality, yet I believe these water colors are still beautiful. I can imagine the details! I don’t think outlines are needed, they are perfect. :)

      Thank you! I think I’ve decided on a scanner. I’m hoping a better scanner will show more detail. I love how these turned out without the outline. I’ll be doing more for sure.

  4. I just love these! You have a way with values, which is extra hard in water colors!

  5. I love how I look here with a sweet little hat and lovely pink shirt. —>
    I hear what you say about getting details to show in pics / Scans. *sigh*
    Awesome portraits, very femenine and elegant.
