Here is my completed illustration for a zine project in homage to Smashing Pumpkins. I chose to illustrate an image based on the song To Forgive and I have been wanting to try out some pen illustration with a vintage, art nouveau feel.
Pencil and charcoal portrait of a model named Mia. I have only had a couple of attempts at photorealism and I have a lot to work on, improving contrast, achieving full photo-realistic hair. I am really happy with elements in the face though, freckles, eyes and skin all look solid enough!
