It’s been almost 3 years now since I have been trying to illustrate something and get a close result to the style of David Downton. I have found a very nice editorial of the beautiful Rachel Weisz and decided to give it a try after a long break from Fashion Illustrations and this was the result:
I found this beautiful editorial that was featured in Vogue Mexico, titled “Tropical”, and I loved the huge head pieces, the chunky necklaces, and the striped shirt and background in this particular photo. I simply could not resist illustrating it.
I tried minimizing the outlines and colored it this way to give the illustration the effect of felt tip markers.
