Well i'm so so so so happy to finally be posting this painting!
It took about 2-3 weeks to do.
Which is way longer than i thought it would take.
I used Pencil, Pen, Color Pencil, Ink, Water Color, and Oil Paint.
The clothes in the painting are from Marchesa's beautiful Fall 2012 collection.
So the concept for the painting...
As you all know, my brother and I have been working on writing a story book.
Since the book isn't done, i can't really share much from it...
I thought i could start doing paintings from the stories and start introducing you to the characters.
This painting is of a character named Josette Halirk. She is a Princess.
She technically isn't in the book we are writing right now, cause she is just a little kid when our first book takes place.
I used model Mona Johannesson as a face reference. For some reason, i feel like Mona's look really fits perfectly how i picture Josette. I really hope you like the painting.
