I’ve been watching a lot of black and white films from the 1940s-60s, especially films starring Veronica Lake. I feel
her image and talents created an iconic style of beauty for Hollywood in the 1940s.
I pencilled her out before using ink to thicken and darken the lines. I kept the skin blank, only highlighting shadows
to give her that airbrushed and mysterious look.
I finally filled in the hair and skin using photoshop. Ink has always been my favourite medium and using
water to help adjust the opacity.
