To keep some resemblance between the illustrations and the actual people being depicted, I worked off of photographs displayed in the Victoria & Albert archives. Out of comfort and to save time, the illustrations were created on a Samsung Galaxy Tab B, using the software, Autodesk SketchBook. Images would be imported in, the alpha would be lowered to around 20%, depending on how bright the original image is. On a second layer, I would sketch over the image in my own style. And finally, on the third layer, colour would be added. These would then be exported as .png files, taken into Photoshop on my computer, and edited to create the final product.
