Digital Collage: My Girls In Hats Series
I created these using lots of different layers, some are images and patterns in the public domain that have been layered, filtered, distorted, etc. to create a new effect and look.
I drew the face on paper, colored it in with Pan Pastels and then scanned it in. Then I fixed the face so it was the way I wanted it. (I can never draw a symmetrical face, they are always lopsided.) Then I drew the hair, the hat, and clothes. After I was done with those I created the background.
I had lots of fun working on this series. I love drawing faces and creating clothes, its like dressing up barbie dolls when I was little.
