Illustration Friday - "Glamour"
I found this picture of a glamorous Brazilian model - sitting in what appears to be the meat and bacon department of a grocery store, holding what appears to be a giant burrito with stuff falling out of it - at Give Me Spirit Fingers, an Asian fashion blog.
My instant thought: "Honey, this was not a good gig, was it?" I sympathized with the look in her eyes.
So here's my take on the picture. The part I enjoyed doing the most was the "OFERTA" sign.
What I learned this week: A tiny brush doesn't work well with thick gucky paint on canvas.
Also, my scanner picks up about 45% of the color in the picture. Makes me wonder how much is missing from all the other pictures I see at Illustration Friday...
