Then and Now

Here is an image I completed for the TD Bank "Then and Now" black history month poster competition! Unfortunately I didn't win but I had a lot of fun working on this image.  The feeling I was going for was a mix of a 1930's jazz singer combined with a 70's hairstyle.
What was also great about working on this image was that it was my first time working entirely on the Cintiq 21UX that I bought a few months ago.  It took me a while to get used to but drawing on a screen rather than on paper soon became very intuitive and natural.  I'm really looking forward to producing more work using the Cintiq as an integral part of my work flow.
