I sketched out her stilettos on heavyweight sketch paper.
Then used oil pastels for color. As much as I crave realism in fiction, realism in art is something I just can't capture. So I went for an intentionally fuzzy look with this project. Bold and artsy rather than delicate.
Then I (after lots of trial and error because I'm not a bit tech savvy) added in the text, and there we have it: my new cover art.
