My first thought for this week's Illustration Friday topic of "faded" was to draw a woman with the color draining from her face. I sat down and while working on her hair, the shading took on a bow shape at her neck. This instantly reminded me of the Miss Dior Cherie perfume ads (Natalie Portman is the model and she has a bow in her hair, although not quite the same bow).

Since I was already working in blue and Miss Dior Cherie is a peachy pink color, I changed the name on the bottle to Miss Dior Nuit to work with my faded evening starlight concept. I'm very happy with the finished piece and hope you enjoy it too!


  1. She looks great! Lovely shapes and mix of blues.

  2. All your women illos are soo super pretty. Love this washed out style illo!

  3. Beautiful, superbeautiful!

  4. Great illustration! Sigh, after the first bit of enthusiasm, I've quit on it. Must get back.
