HELENA LAM is the artist of inspiration. Her work features lovely ladies of the Art Deco period (1920 - early 1930's).
Girls - from a vintage photograph - extracted, made to look like a drawing and colored
Light posts, hat flowers and vintage car - Mischiefcircus - http://mischiefcircus.com
Background - created using a city and landscape image, vectors, brushes, overlays and a texture
This was an interesting challenge for me - this image is just so different from what I would ever think of doing and that is why I love challenges. Below is the image I started with to make this digital collage. I extracted the girls, ran some filters to make them appear as a drawing and then colored them - all in Photoshop Elements. Once I had my girls I then created the background image. Lots of fun I think I will do some more of these.
