Stylizing Portraits

By: Staci Srebro

Hello everyone,
This week I wanted to play with stylizing a portrait of one of my favorite singers, Siouxsie Sioux.

She already has an iconic look with bold eye makeup and teased hair, so I thought she would be a good subject.

I started with a pencil drawing. The lines are very rough, but this is because I let myself move in a free motion while drawing. I want this drawing to be very bold and graphic with thick and angular lines.

Afterwards, I simply inked this drawing with sharpie marker. I accented the angles in her face or the flowing motion of her hair.
