About This Project

My first multi-coloured portrait inspired by Wahyu Romdhoni’s lion drawing. I can’t seem to find his website, so here is his DeviantArt portfolio. The girl is someone I met before and wanted to get in contact with again, and I made this illustration with the hope of her seeing it – it never happened. Laugh-out-loud. At least I got to explore this new technique.

She’s a stunning photographer. Click here for her website.



I used the photo from her Facebook profile (don’t worry, we were Facebook friends for a long time, until I decided to unfriend nearly all my Facebook friends, including her; and she never accepted my request again). The colours green, yellow, pink and blue felt right for this portrait, when I deviated from the use of colours close to the original photo.

I captured every essence of her face correctly. Finding the right colour to fit each feature was the challenge, but I managed to pull it off. The hair was another challenge. Not wanting to use the dark brunette colours, I had to find a solution that was colourful, yet close to her dark hair. After experimenting with many options, I landed on the neon effect, which turned out to be the perfect solution.


This portrait is – by the looks of it – electrifying.
