Finding a distraction while traveling typically involves lots of books, magazines, downloaded movies and music. When thinking about the best way to pass several hours of traveling in and out of airports over the Thanksgiving Holiday I came upon these little beauties on Pinterest. What better way to pass the hours than to illustrate them?
The intricate laser-cut details of the Christian Louboutin "Kristali" pumps were just the challenge to keep me busy. I traced out the major shapes in pencil, then did the intricate details with my Micron Pen. I recently purchased a starter set of the Winsor & Newton Pigment Markers and I've been dying to use them. The Scarlet and Rose colors mixed together to create the perfect "Louboutin Red." A little Natural Grey accents helped create the shadows. Check out the completed illustration:
