Alicia Keys Portrait

A description of the image goes here.
This started out as an idea for a beautiful educated sister, but then I sold out and decided to turn her into a familiar face...funny thing is not everyone can tell who she is(unlike most of my portraits) so I may have my integrity yet...



This is a new approach I'm going to be running with for a while. You see I just now remembered that I use brown kraft paper as a base; which means for a lot of these characters i really don't need to apply flesh tone, I can focus on the important things, like lighting.
The fun really comes in colouring the light, in this particular case I'm going for a jazzy blue.
Also I'm digging the half finished look, I can pass my laziness off as artistic decisiveness.
(her hand is only half rendered, any less and bad things happen)

peace

-King
