Pencil Sketch for New Flirty and Fun Illustration

In case you’re curious, my illustrations always start from a concept.  Like…

Flirty

Fun

and

Playful

From there I search the web to find photos that will help me create realistic-looking poses for my fashionista, Josephine.  In today’s sketch, I wanted Josephine to look ladylike (but still sexy) as she battled a sudden gust of wind.  The following two images helped to shape my composition:

Girl with a fan

Girl with polkadot skirt blowing in the wind

While this great image gave me the idea to insert a male element to inject a little whimsy and humor as well.

Priest and girl in red dress

While the composition is still “in-progress”, I’m liking where it’s headed so far.  I’ll be posting the final rendered illustration later this week.  Stay tuned!
