About This Project

Esteé-Kay is one of my friend’s daughters, and very close to my heart for a very specific reason known only by a few people. Just for that reason, I decided to illustrate her. She’s a darling pretty girl in real life, with a gentle spirit.



There was no other way to illustrate light-blonde hair, so I had to use tints of yellow. On the other hand, I was able to capture every character of Esteé-Kay, even the ice-cream – which was my favourite part of doing this portrait. The character of some lines are quite strong and detailed, due to the heavy contrast between them and the colour they’re on, but the effect suites the style of the entire portrait. The best feature for me on this portrait is Esteé-Kay’s eyes. Her blue eyes just stands out from all the warm colours, which is what we want. Her eyes pull our attention and we can see the life inside them.

With so much detail on Esteé-Kay, I was only able to create a simplistic, yet girly background in pink.
