Final Show… Seaside Holiday…

08 Jun 10
This is the second of the images,  from a holiday Mabel and Arthur had in Brighton in the early 50s. The characters were shaded in the same way as the previous image (though this was actually the first one I coloured up)…
Once I had finished colouring the characters I cleaned up the edges and created the background by again tracing over some photographs I found and making them blurred to add some depth to the image. This image also had a filter added to it to make it look old…
… and so here’s the final image for this one. If I’d had more time I’d like to have added more detail to the costumes and the hat, but it’s something I might go back to and work on for my portfolio…
