Secret7s: Lorde process pictures

This year's Secret7s has been announced, and I was lucky enough to get in again. One of the entries that didn't get in was for Lorde's 'Team':

Here's the final image, and underneath it are photos I took as I was working on it.

This last image (and hello there if you've scrolled through all that!) is the final scan before I shaded it in Photoshop. It might be worth noting that there's more hair in this version than the final version -- for the sake of the composition I had to chop some of it out for the final image.

    1. If truth be told, I fucked it up with brush pens, and Photoshop was brought in to fix those mistakes. Also, the final design had to be square, ad while the final inks worked really well as a full-page image, as soon as it was cropped down it lacked any real dynamism.
