The Red Coat by janey-jane The Red Coat by janey-jane
Another old piece. Pen and ink...I think it's on bristol board.

Entirely traditional media done by hand without reference (it's my excuse for why her hand is all wonky). The main reason I drew her was for her hair, I had this idea for hair done with ball point pen and she's the result of that inspiration. The whole stark contrast graphic nature of the composition was an afterthought, but now that the piece is done I'm totally in love with the strong red against the black and white.

I thought about cleaning up the red in photoshop because the scan makes it look a bit blotchy, I don't know, should I?
