Chris Silver's Portrait ProcessIllustration // Thursday, 06 Dec 2012
The point of using tea and wax was to give the drawing an aged effect. The drawing as a whole was stylised. I ignored details such as eyelashes and her hair. It was a quick burst and the goal was to make the key features as striking as possible. By contrast, areas like the hair are very whimsical and vague. Balancing out the simplistic lines with the more detailed areas was something I found difficult.'
