Egyptian Girl

Since I just finished reading a cool book last night about Dinah (Joseph's sister) called "The Red Tent", I thought I'd draw a picture of this girl. Maybe our new cat Winter snuck into the pic too.

Totaly cool. I love the background, it pops out. Great expressiveness in the figures too. I keep thinking she must have strong bones to hold up that hair.

This is done using Photoshop, right? Forgive the PS-newbie question, but how did you do that lovely background?

sarah said...

Thanks guys! Yay! I'm definitely going to try this way of colouring again.

Colin, I coloured my scanned lines a little in photoshop and then did all the brush/painty stuff in Painter :)

This is such a coincidence, Sarah. I'm the admin for The Red Tent Fan Page on FB, exclusively devoted to the book AND I've always loved your work! I'm sharing this on the page, I hope you don't mind! It's so nice to see artists interpreting Dinah the way she would've been!
