Lucy's on Fire

So here I am playing around with colour again.  This amazing image from Unky at The East Wind is Lucy Loo Close Up.  I wanted to try my hand at red hair again and this is the result.  A fabulous firey mane of red hair with and orangey sheen!

I'm afraid to say I went with my old faithful ProMarkers here, I've also used a black polychroms pencil for a bit of extra shading and  a white gel pen for the highlight in the eye.

The background was also produced with ProMarkers.  I definitely needed to keep her as the focus so I've mounted her onto black and orange card stock to bring out the colour.

The two design papers are from Lili of the Valley and UHK Gallery.

The only embellishment I've added are some small orange neon enamel dots.

Oh and the eye is probably the best I've done so far :D
