Making Progress – “In the Mirror” Sketches and Preliminary Outlined Pen Drawing

About a month ago I posted a preliminary pencil sketch for a new “In the Mirror” fashionista illustration.

In case you missed that post, here is the sketch again:

I liked the sketch, but she looked a little too va-va-voom and slightly haughty to me – not the qualities I think Josephine embodies.  So I’ve been looking at the sketch on and off and thinking about how I want to tweak the expression.

Here’s sketch version 2:

And since I think she now has more promise, I’ve gone ahead and transferred an inked outline to my art paper:

I can’t wait to start coloring her in tomorrow!

Hope you’ll come back to see what evolves!
