Another version

Jon Benet Ramsey Murder

I'm really happy with how this one turned out. Illustrating Jon Benet Ramsey over the house she was murdered in. Digital color, graphite...

I had to draw this one a few different times. After the original sketch was ready, I tried acrylic. The paint covered my graphite and had a look I wasn't happy with. So I traced the original sketch's pencil lines making sure to refine the graphite to the quality I wanted in the final. It was a hard decision to use pencil and not ink but the graphite turned out to be flexible in photoshop. SO after all the line was accounted for I just layed down several layers of transparent color.

Just incase you were wondering. hahaha, it's creepy though right?
