Pixie Refined

Who knew the same Manic Pixie Dream Girl from yesterday could evoke an entirely different feeling just by converting her to black and white?! The goal of Friday's class drawings was to achieve a face worthy of a perfume ad. I decided to experiment with the color palette and opacity in order to arrive at just that. I love that this composition evokes such a feeling of old Hollywood glamour. I have a real affinity for vintage beauty. The type of demure elegance that women of the 1950's exude through their pores. Oppressive gender roles aside, I would happily spend a day absorbed in that era. Enjoy!!
