Digital Illustration

One of my good friends is a professional photographer and she provided me with an amazing opportunity to illustrate a portrait of her rescue, Franklin. His personality definitely comes across in the photos she has taken of him. I was super excited to work on this illustration.

I started out doing the painting in greyscale. Once complete, I added a desaturated blueish tone to the overall image.
