Portrait Commission for Elizabeth Bonesteel
Posted 9 months ago and submitted by Simon Carr | Share link: http://illo.cc/96140

Here’s a recent portrait that I painted for author Elizabeth Bonesteel. The brief for this painting was to create a portrait of a Greek woman in her mid-30s with dark brown eyes and dark brown shoulder length curly hair. She was also to look like she’s smiling a little, even when relaxed. For this painting I wanted to add some traditional painting textural effects whilst adhering to the commission brief as much as possible.

Over the course of several series books, Simon has been an absolute pleasure to work with — he’s talented, professional, and detailed. He deftly translates entirely imagined worlds into amazing works of art that make those worlds real on the covers of our books. His talent speaks for itself in his portfolio and I would recommend him to anyone looking to work with an expert in character and scene illustration.
