I have always enjoyed watching films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, so I decided to draw something inspired by it.
The hair is inspired by Veronica Lake, a starlet who is remembered for her ‘peek-a-boo’ hairstyle where one eye is covered by a lock of hair. This hairstyle was extremely popular in the 1930’s, but it went out of fashion during WWII when the women went to work in factories and had to keep their hair back so it wouldn’t get caught in the machines.
The eyebrows and eyes are inspired by Greta Garbo, the most famous actress of the era. Her eye makeup was intended to create a sleepy, mysterious look, which is said to have influenced Marilyn Monroe’s makeup.
The lips are inspired by nobody in particular. I just wanted to make it look as glamorous as possible. :p
