Feeling inspired by Roksanda Illincic's Spring 18 collection, I wanted to feature some of the designers accessories in my new drawing of Emily Bador, the fresh-faced, freckly model whose face I keep coming across when I'm browsing my Pinterest and various street fashion editorials. . .

Here's how it started, in my moleskine, my paper of choice at the moment, using a 4b pencil and some white drawing ink for highlights. The paper has been washed over with some water colour to begin with. . .

I then move between Procreate and Pixelmator on my iPad Pro to add colour where needed - saving my image every step of the way so that I can put the images together to make a little video of the process. . . .I'm certainly not a video/film-maker but I personally like the 'clunkiness' of it, it feels more rustic and authentic. . .?!

She comes 'alive' towards the end; an added surprise for the viewer :)
