Colorized drawing by me after Anna Nicole Smith

This was sketched by hand (after a photograph), then photographed and imported into a basic editor program (draw) where I colorized it. I’m wondering if any readers could give me feedback regarding the overall quality here, (needs some touch ups)  if this level of quality is sufficient for eBooks. Also if this image is appealing only to women or also men. Thank you. I am a real ANS fan.Screen Shot 2015-12-21 at 12.39.28 PM.png

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    That’s Nicole, alright! Something about those blue eyes.

    I think this is a good effort actually. What is the eBook about? That might help you to determine whether this is of a suitable enough quality to use for it. Of course, it does immediately draw my attention for two main (and very obvious) reasons which is no bad thing at all. The eyes are quite nicely done too. I think about the only thing I’d touch up is the hair so that the strands aren’t quite as… hm… chunky? Otherwise, it’s a great effort! (And I agree with marble in that it certainly does look like ANS.)

      Thank you. Yes, I would redo the hair. I also need to smooth the arms. Well, I am not largely featuring illos in the book (which is honestly a secret project that I can’t discuss here) because it takes so long to do them. 😦 I need to figure out a faster way. I did discover that by blocking out the frame with shapes and filling those rather than all strokes it would go faster. Still, makes me appreciate the time it took for cartoonists to ink… good lord…)

      • Tony Single says:

        Blocking out the frame with shapes is actually a very efficient way to approach this, Kinneret. I would encourage you to keep going in that vein for whatever illustrations remain. And, yeah, I agree with you. You really only need to touch this image up a little. The shapes and bold colours are what already sell it, I think.
