I love the blue and grey tones Hansen has used in this illustration. I feel that her depiction is captivating because of the minimalistic approach she used in her designs. In addition, I like how the illustrator has named her fashion figures, as it adds personality to her depictions.

The first step was to lightly sketch around the figure. I feel that I used the wrong pencil when tracing as the lines of my illustration were quite harsh.

I used water colour paints to add colour to the depiction.

When I finished adding colour to the illustration, I used black pen to add detail to the fashion figure.

Overall, I am pleased with the final outcome of my recreation of Hansen’s fashion illustration. If I were to repeat this process I would focus more on building up the colour using watercolour paints. I believe that my attempt is similar and represents Hansen’s style well.
