Thinking and practise, Illustration workshop.

Today I looked at refining the hair of Marilyn Monroe.

To start I used the pen tool to go around the basic outline.

I filled the shape i created in a solid yellow colour.

Using this as a rough shape I created a new layer. Then used the pen tool again to create more accurate pen lines. To create flowing lines I clicked object, path then simplify. I modified the stroke weight and profile to add definition.
