Illustration Friday _ Sight

This weeks word- Sight.

Sight can be defined as the following, according to the Webster Dictionary ; something that is seen, a thing regarded as worth seeing; or an observation to determine direction or position (as by a navigator).
On family vacations the first thing I love to do is capture a sight, so I can recreate it in my illustration. One of my fondest trips was Sea World. This image is a portrait of my sister near a flamingo exhibit. The original image was this photo.
Makes me want to go back to enjoy the Floridian air!!!!! After bringing in the photo into photoshop, I was able to create an outline of the image.
After I created my outline with ink, I added a little digital flavor! Adding color-which brought it to life but, I still enjoyed the outline though. It has it's own character. Here's the final.

There she is! One of my lovely sisters! Summer is right around the corner, Im sure there will be many sights to capture. Stay tuned for more ....
Hope you enjoyed!
