Fairytale Princess Bride
Heidi's Mum and two Sisters, contacted me to illustrate Heidi's Wedding Dress Illustration to give her as a wedding present. In order to illustrate her in her dress, I waited until after the wedding so that I had access to photographs of Heidi and her dress to work from. So that Heidi's family had something 'physical' to give her on the day, I sent them a Gift Certificate detailing what they'd commissioned. Shortly after the wedding her Sister got back in contact with me to send me the photographs so I could complete her drawing.
To make the drawing unmistakably 'Heidi', I incorporated Heidi's colourful bouquet and pretty hairstyle that she wore in loose curls with diamantés scattered throughout and a veil at the back.
