This was done for my newspaper’s 2009 Fashion Issue cover. It was part of a set that won third place from Washington Newspaper Publishers Association, and it, by itself, won first place from Society of Professional Journalists during the 2009 cycle.
It started as a pencil sketch. Was scanned and then re-drawn in Photoshop. It was colored in Photoshop. It was laid out in mostly Photoshop and a little bit in Illustrator.
