A couple weeks ago I was contacted by French singer Cylia who invited me to participate in a fun, little art contest on her Facebook page. I basically had to illustrate one of the photos on her page and her Facebook fans would pick their favourite. The illustration above is what I came up with.

I also decided to put together my first progress slideshow video of this illustration. It's very short but I promise to make a better one next time with more photos taken at more regular stages in the process.

Hope you like it! xx

  3. 'Cylia' illustration is to die for. The detail on the hair is incredible.Really great idea to include the 'making of' video.
