I have been working on creating a number of digital portraits using Illustrator. If all goes well, I hope the incorporate the portraits into a fabric design. My idea was to turn each girl into a princess, so I will be adding jewelry and crowns/tiaras to finish off the looks. Overall, and especially for the fabric design, I will need to tweak each of the images to get a slightly more uniform look. At this point, some of the portraits look more realistic, while some look a but more cartoonish. I may also have to simplify the details on the portraits for the fabric design, as I am not sure how small elements of shading and hair highlights will appear when printed on fabric. It certainly is a fun experiment, and it has been keeping me busy in my free-time. Thanks for looking!
