Inspired by the results of the last piece I did that started with an old-timey photo, I decided to do a search for silent era stars and came across some photos of Maude Fealy, who acted in many of Cecil B. Demille’s films.
I also came across photos of Florence Colgate, the so-called most mathematically beautiful woman, with the Steven Marquard “beauty mask” superimposed over her face, which inspired me to see how old Maude measured up. Not too shabby, Ms. Fealy.
This is an all digital creation.
Continuing to experiment with styles and techniques for my foray into comics.
Here’s an image created by using a color sketch created in Sketchbook Pro, then tracing the image in Illustrator and overlaying the trace on top of the original sketch. Now that I look at it, the large light area on the left side of her head looks a little strange, like she’s balding. But otherwise I like the way it turned out. Looks a little like an old 1920s lithograph to me.
Here’s the original sketch before the overlay.
