Pastel and charcoal on toned tan paper.
You might not notice the Frank Miller influence here, but we’re huge fans of Sin City. In several of the stories, Miller uses just a single primary color as an occasional highlight to his stark black and white renderings. The idea of limiting your selection is a powerful creative tool for artists in any medium. The blank page – whether a music staff, a canvas, or drawing paper – can intimidate with its unlimited possibilities. Throwing out the majority of them to choose a few select elements brings your project into focus. Today, we decided to add to our neutral tones for Ellie by using pastels to capture the colors of her eyes.
