The sixties were a time when ordinary people could do extraordinary things . . . !Twiggy
Hopefully the cool quote that I’ve chosen has given you a clue as to who inspired my latest illustration. The photo was actually in black and white, so I chose an orange hue that could have been popular in the 60s. Of course, it looks different on every screen, so on my PC right now it looks like plain old orange.
The photos I find always seem to have the feet somewhat cropped out, so I thought I’d go with the trend, keep it simple, and hide the feet myself. Eventually I’ll buckle down and watch some tutorials on these things that I find difficult, but for now I just want to enjoy myself.
I thought it might be interesting to share the originals that I’ve used as a reference point, just for the sake of comparison, so here’s the original Twiggy…
Don’t ask me what that strange stuffed animal is that she’s holding. It looks pretty weird! A pig maybe? Anyway, I think that’s about all for now.
I hope you’re doing well and keeping safe in this mad, mad world that we’re living in right now.
And I hope you enjoyed the illustration!
Peace & Love!
