Eco Apothecary – Portrait of Danielle Bray and her Potions

The Stop In Station in Silver Lake is a new and developing co-op that is filled with the type of people I want know…and draw.  (Cafeina GaleriaHot Mess VintageSaint of MeEco Apothecary)  This is a portrait of Danielle Bray, the owner and mixing-mama (sexy-scientist?) of the Eco Apothecary.  I’ll take you through the process…

I added an exciting gradient behind Danielle and her bottles.

This following is without the gradient:

I added a glow to the blue bottle in Danielle’s hands because I felt it got a bit lost in all of the other colors.  At first I struggled with how much to draw and leave out.  After I figured out how I wanted to use lines (for the bottle and face details in particular) I added the Eco Apothecary name (which is Danielle’s font).  Per request, I created a wooden frame, which was super fun to draw.  I played with emboss, shadow, and grain to create a wood feel.  I did some copy/pasting for symmetry.

I like the way it turned out!  What do you think?
