every two weeks i'm going to try to do an editorial illustration based on an article of my choosing. anyway my first assignment is an article about muslim school girls in France who are sent off over the summer and are forced into marriage. this is the article: New school year puts French on forced marriage alert
a couple sketches:
i ended up going with the second sketch, i liked the composition more. and then i did a more detailed sketch, and some digital experimentation which i think is kind of funny, not really my style...
and for the final i worked in layers which is a new way of working for me. not digital layers but velum layers, which was fun. first i did the drawing in pencil on velum, then i did two color layers with color pencil on velum, and layered them in photoshop...
i cropped the drawing a bit and the final is at the top...
